    It is Nicky's bike. You can just make out his number on the higher.

    Yeah that's Nicky, he uses the rear brake more than most, it's hold over from his dirt track days.

    The # 69 on the Hugger (which I think was the word Budoist was trying to convey) is a starting point.

    From an interview he gave years ago, probably around the time that pick was taken.
