and he was 'treating' a woman's dog who went nuts every time the lady's boyfriend left; esp. when the guy fired up and left on his motored bike. It looked like the guy was running a R/S friction drive. It was pretty well 'covered' by basket/pannier, though, so you couldn't really see the make - or, for that matter, anything much, except the engine. The location looked as if it were somewhere in southern CA, and the guy appeared to be about 50. Is the MB owner a member here???
