dude.. awesome!!! I want friends like these! Here I am thinking i am the only fool around that wants to wrench on old bikes and then tear them up in the streets while looking like a happy 70s biker in a 3/4 helmet.

If there are any like minded people like this in the Albany NY area please get at me! hahaha

is the one bike a sr500??? I am looking at an xt500 as my street tracker play bike.

not the only one my friend... If the guys around my next of the woods were a bit less into the dirt bikes, Harleys and cheap crap beer and more into microbrew or wine, good cooking and vintage bikes I might be a bit less harsh on local riders.

Removed The Scene video...

Blaine.hale, while I love to poke fun at the hipster culture, the most important thing.
Is that there are riders (hipsters or not) who are out there enjoying riding and hanging out with their friends.

And in the end that's what riding and motorbikes should always be about.

Having fun.

Looks like SR500's or 400's and a BMW. Not sure what flavor BMW as they all look the same to me...

I started riding in my early 20's

We used to tear ass around Seattle, Jeans, leather jackets work gloves.

I wore a full face just becasue it was more comfortable in the rain.

We were all on rat bikes. Cafe'd CB's and old Guzzi's and BMW's.

While I didn't have quite the epiphany that hardwaregrrl had

I've also changed what I ride, and how I ride. and what i wear when I ride.

It's great and it's awful what the web has done to bikes.

I'm glad that there are guys like these on the video out there loving riding,
Even if it's just for the blogability of. They still are getting it to some degree.

And the more riders there are the better off we all are.

How have I missed this thread!? I need to stop playing with those dang motorbikes and hang out here more!

I thought that video rocked. I watched it twice. Thanks for posting that, man. The bikes were cool, the song was great and the photography was wonderful. Only bad part: I spent the whole time staring at their asses trying to see the tramp stamp.
