Looks odd with the side car on the left .
a toast to those who came before (and another to those still with us and still out there) and remember our responsibility to those who will follow.
I don't know about everyone else, but looking at these makes me think that the overly passionate condemnation of the "wrong" bikes by some people is kinda pointless. People all over the world have been taking whatever they have, pointing down the trail and saying, "Hell yeah, let's give it a try, what's the worse that could happen?" for a long time now. Adventure is where you find it, whether on the other side of the globe or just past the end of the pavement.
Not to say that there is anything wrong with some good-natured disparagement, but let's keep it fun.
thanks for bumping this would never have seen it otherwise! amazing!
Very well said mate.
Great old pics, a more simple time. Thanks.
Gotta be some front page material here.
Thanks for taking such great care with all the old photos. Great for everyone to see!
This thread is just Epic. I'v join the website all thanks to this posting. I ride a 1998 v-star and I'v gone down some dirt trailswith her but these guys here are Legends! I'm inspired by these guys!
Almost one million view too!
Too\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\damn good. Thanks for sharing.
This thread should be the introductory thread to Adventure Riding. This is where it all started. Guys on bikes getting out and having fun going where most don't dare go.
My first experience with a bike................ I was about 4 yrs old. 1958. Our Dentist, Dr Mulford was a fishing buddy of my Dads. He had a cabin in the Rampart Range someplace. My dad kept an old stripped Harley there. Maybe it was an Indian, I don't know for sure. But they cut grooves, side ways in the tires for more grip, and rode those bike around Rampart Range. Dad would give me a ride around the driveway on it. i sat on the tank, and the rumble scared the Shi**t out of me, but I wanted to go anyway. Thanks for the pix!
What a wonderful collection of fotos when you go through all 40 pages.
I can see I will need to send out some PM's to beg permission to use
some of these on a not for profit web site sometime.
I love the old pics.
Thanks for sharing....
So glad to see this thread still with us. I hope we never lose the spirit these guys demonstrate.
Craziest topic in this forum!!! Very good!!!!
This is why I love Adventure Rider.
...is what this thread is. It took me about 3 to 4 days to go throught this thread with work and all.
The Weber family has done a huge service for themselves and for this forum community. This thread alone is why I just signed up for an account.
I've been a longtime lurker. I've learned quite a bit from the many voices of experience on this forum and I'm most appreciative for all of it.
I've been wondering just what to get for my new bike, what sort of gadgets, those 'have to have things' when really all I need is a set of hard bags mounted to the bike and just go. I say by reading this thread and seeing what those individuals have done before me so long ago, all one needs is the willingness and desire to go seek out those unknown frontiers.
I'm looking forward to striking out on my own towards unknown journeys. It's going to be one helluva ride...
Amen, god bless those guy, they really have balls.
Great thread! I don't like HD but i like the way they rode those bikes. Thx for sharing.
