    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.

    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.

    Nice collection of bikes. Around here it seems like you have to be in a club to ride - pirate clubs, vintage clubs, rice rocket clubs, nobody just goes for a ride.

    It's why I just do my own thing!

    Beeauutiful.

    But a little too much pointless serpentining and not enough bicycle pedaling (that was good fun).

    Also love the two-lane roads. The only kind that matter ifn you ask me.

    It kind of inspired me to pull the trigger and order a Nikon d7000 body to film some motorbike stuffs in the warm weathers :D
    Stay tuned ;)

    Definitely staying tuned. Love your photos. But when will we be able to dispense with calling this digi stuff "film"?

    Kinda like calling daguerreotypes "sketches". Did they call 'em sketches? I don't know.

    There wasnt any harleys in the video :thumb

    These dudes are from france as well, I think, not so cal. seems they just love the bikes and wrenching on them and riding together. not a fad or bc everyone else is doing it. to each his own! the bike that is painted like a harley tracker is actually a sr/xt 500.

    Does it matter if they're from france or cal or kansas?
    I don't think so. And I'm not sure if you can tell if it's a fad or not just by that 4.5 minutes. Seems to me when I see that many bearded guys in a room wearing flannel........

    anyhow. great watch. but I'm with Drilldogger.

    Another good video with vintage bikes. I don't know the band, but I know (nearly) every rider. We should start a "name all the bikes" visible in each video game.
