The 1963 R69S as it looks today.

I was a fanatic dirt bike guy in the 1970s, living in the small town on Ponce on Puerto Rico’s South Coast when a group of my street bike friends invited me to go on a two-day ride around the island. It sounded like fun, but I didn’t have a touring bike to ride. I asked some old timers, and they suggested I contact old Ernesto Garcia at his motorcycle repair shop. A nice, low-key guy, according to them, who had lots of bikes and might lend me one.
