    And Harley-Davidson never got the idea to make a movie like that to encourage old people to ride until they find the right strategy to attract young riders…

    Love the video
    Reminds me of one of my favourite German uncles
    He had cancer .. 6 months or so .. chemotheraphy wasn’t working so he decided to clear out the garage
    2 canoes, surfboards, Honda 250, lots of bicycles etc
    His son arranged to come round in a van to pick up the Honda 250 Superdream.. his wife went out shopping – when they both arrived back at the house she couldn’t get in (so got worried), the son opened up the garage to gain entrance to the house – no motorbike, no Karl Heinz… he had only gone out for one last ride round the block on the bike!!
    He died about 3 months later.. the family were still taking about the motorbike ride..

    When one is young they look at older people and say why don’t they { older people let say 55 } drop off the face of the earth. They cant ride !

    When one gets older they say will that young punk ever live to be 55.

    Of course the young people are hip and also invented sex, booze and try to live the way we did and retro bikes like us old bastards . LOL

    Funny at what age is one supposed to disappear and have the youth of today create their own style and not copy the old bastards lifestyles.

    Life is short enjoy it with all. This shit makes me tired I’m going to bed. LOL

    ” Now into the future.” Just remember how nice of a bike that Ole St Nick built down Houston way. Maybe we can copy it now. LOL

  38. 38 dan Feb 16th, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    it reminds me of my Brother Kolins. we rode everywhere, we had Fun everywhere. we wanted to be those two old guys on the front porch, now too old to swing our legs our our rides and telling sories to everyone of all the places and people we meet. we weren’t going to be talking about the pretty flowers and grass we babysat. Ride on my Brother Kolins, we miss you. we could of beem just like these guys one last ride. That is a great video. Thanks.
