"Just wanna ride on my motorcycle..."

Found it! I was looking for a photo of Terry Tenove -- he was number 11, and was our quarterback and defensive back. Today being 11-11-11, I thought of him. Especially a photo of him jumping high into the air to intercept a pass (as a defensive back). I can see the number 11 on his back. Well, I never found his photo, however, I did (finally) locate this drawing of a motorcycle I did in the late 60s.

It is the third in a series of three motorcyles I drew when I was a mid-teenager.

On this one I actually wrote the Arlo Guthrie verse, "I don't want a pickle, just wanna ride on my motorcycle." (Page is partially riped.)

  I don't want a pickle
  Just want to ride on my motorsickle
  And I don't want a tickle
  'Cause I'd rather ride on my motorsickle
  And I don't want to die
  Just want to ride on my motorcy...

(See the first two motorcyles here:

Your drawing of a motorcycle looks great! You are a true artist. I wish I can draw like you. I love the poem, by the way, about your motorcycle. It sounds cool and amusing.

Thanks. I was a kid "artist." I could only WISH Arlo's poem was about my own motorcycle.

It's so nice that you still keep the drawings you made when you were a teen. That's a gorgeous sketch of a bike. It looks so vivid, even though it's done with just pencil and paper. The poem perfectly complements your sketch. You’re such a talented man, Scott. I'd love to see more of these. :)
