THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
An old BSA twin, from years ago
No coil or points- – -just a magneto
At the mercy of Joe Lucas,
when riding at night
Yes! You’re right- – No sign of light!
Kick for a while, then kick even harder
Hell no- – there’s no electric starter!
Might kick you back,
there’s always that chance
Have to set just right, the spark advance
Oil on my boots, a real fun spoiler
Especially when trying to impress her.
Oil leaks seemed part of BSA’s plan
Even in the showroom, always a drip pan.
Over 50 years have now gone by
We remember those days with a sigh
BSA are no more- – a part of history
Where it is now- – is just a mystery
I remember well our courting days
And it never, ever ceased to amaze
At the fun we had, just us two
On that old BSA- – – – 1952 !
