    Hi all,
    I thought these early 70's films were brilliant, but I have the feeling that most of you guys stateside will be very familiar with them...but maybe not elsewhere SO...sorry if they have been posted here before, won't hurt again though; they just make me laugh in so many ways. :rofl

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8-l7ufP-I4 this is the first, more on his channel. :clap


    All the best everyone

    Cheers

    These guys are our roots. They boldly went wherever it was fun to go. They pushed their machines to the limits and beyond. That is Adventure Riding.

    After seeing what these guys did on hardtails, I'll laugh my ass off the next time I see a KLR, GS, DL, etc, rider going on about their new, high-dollar suspension they had to have so they could pull off to the side of the road and take pics of their bikes...lol.:lol3

    Have you seen it?

    The July issue has a great shot of a flying Harley hill climber.
    Hard tail, springer forks, floor boards, and tire chains too. :clap

    The rider's position is "perfect timing" for the picture!

    If you don't get the magazine, take a look at the last page next time you are in a store.
