"Black Betty" from the 1977 Ram Jam cover of Heddy Ledbetter's classic tune ... being raised as a child in Birmingham, Alabama, the tune always made me think of home and tap my feet. It was in this year I started a newspaper route on bicycle & came to know I wanted, needed & had to have a motorcycle. 5 Honda's later, I found a nice black & silver 1995 PC800 for a song ... Woody, aka pearlVFR.
