Video Thread

I did a search to make sure that no-one had tried this concept before me; I couldn't see any evidence. I have given it the most general name possible so that no-one is spanked by not conforming to the rules. I was just sent this viddie by a mate and thought it'd make a fine start. It's an oldie (in web terms) but a very goodie.

Never underestimate the power of a great story.

In 1980 or 81 I was at a road race outside of Aspen, Colorado on a small 400 yard starightaway course. Kwaks, Susuks and a couple other UJMs thrown in with a triple older Triumph. I guy from California unloads a red SEI with six black pipes and the hippy crowd went silent. That sound echoing off the surrounding mountains was the most beautiful noise there is. He didn't win and if I remember correctly he fell down. I loved that bike.

Lots of folks don't remember that track in the Mountains.

Embedding

Dunno how you embed vimeo Skiddy. I still wrestle with Tube viddies. I welcome any suggestions too.
