The Decker-Sheene Connection

Jeff Decker at the Cannonball in ABQ complete with high zoot rain gear. Justin said he read somewhere Jeff dropped out later that day. No question it was a brutal day.

I was seriously wondering what the story with that helmet. Now I know.

I don't think that garbage bag meets Jeff's normal sartorial standards. The words "Form follows function" come to mind. I was curious who coined that phrase, because I think it's especially true of motorcycles. It was an architect named Louis Sullivan, about 1908:

It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic,
Of all things physical and metaphysical,
Of all things human and all things super-human,
Of all true manifestations of the head,
Of the heart, of the soul,
That the life is recognizable in its expression,
That form ever follows function. This is the law.

A postscript... Louis Sullivan faded into obscurity. His assistant did not, however. His name was Frank Lloyd Wright.
