Last summer we shared an article about a guy on his “Harley-Davidson Frijole 883” in the NORRA Mexican 1000, well these guys may have topped that!
TAKE: Two guys, a couple 1980 Honda Gold Wings, add a set of knobbies, stereos, CB radios, KC lights, trailer hitches & cup holders….and go for an Enduro Ride(must have cup holders when off-roading, you know, stay hydrated)
Check out the great article on RideApart.Com and enjoy their video below.
Looks like a lot of fun, but you better be in good shape to hustle these big boys on the trail!
In a recent copy of the AMA magazine, a letter to the editor caught my attention and started me thinking as well.
We as motorcyclists are always complaining about the cagers.
They are not paying attention. Messing with cell phones and gadgets and we as riders will usually come out on the bad end of those situations.
His letter kinda places some responsibility on us as riders.
WHAT! – US? Man, is he ruffling feathers or what?
We should put forth the same amount of effort ( or even more ), that we spend on wanting “distracted drivers” to see us and make sure we are not “distracted riders”.
He makes a good point.
We riders know that we are invisible to a lot of vehicles and we have to be totally aware of traffic and expect the unexpected.
So, WE MUST be careful with our Rider-Rider communications, Cameras, GPS’s, Bluetooth music & calls and such, because, all of these can be just as dangerous to us as riders as they are to other vehicles on the highway.
So try to make sure you are not a Distracted Rider…Ok?
Then Came Bronson, an American adventure/drama television series aired on NBC for one season – September 17, 1969 thru April 1, 1970 – 26 episodes. A lot of you may have never heard of it.
After loosing his best friend and arguments with his boss, he began a journey searching for the meaning of life! Just like a cowboy but on a H-D Sportser. I don’t think the series has ever been released on DVD, but seems some episodes are on the internet.
Below is episode 2 where he has bike trouble and an old codger picks him up. Then they get Bronson’s and the old guys bike running again and take off (but not everyone is happy about it).
