Robert Pirsig

I just saw that Robert Pirsig, the author of "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" has died at 88 years old. I read the book in the '70s, found it a little obtuse at first, but I re-read it later and truly enjoyed it. If I remember right he was riding a Honda 305 Super Hawk in the book, two up with his son, rather daunting even in those days.

Sad to hear. His was a noble quest: quality!
