Rules for Touring by Dick Eberle
Cape Henry bRegion MARC

But they would be wise to observe them, Do you signal upcoming turns clearly,
when venturing out in their old Model A. for the driver behind you to heed?
Is the air in the tires sufficient? And while we speak of that fellow behind you
Have the lug nuts been torqued down real tight? Do you keep him clearly in sight?
Did you measure the crankcase oil level? If he disappears from your review mirror,
Did you check that tiny stoplight? Slow down to determine his plight.
Is the radiator topped off with water? We’re all in this tour together
Do you carry a gallon for spare? Our goal is to have some fun
Are your brakes tight and safely adjusted? Be patient with those who have problems,
Or do they need some additional care? You just might be the next one.
Have you had the flivver out lately? If everything’s not to your liking
Does it seem to be running OK? Accept it and button your lip,
