      It seems to take the 'romantic' direction rather than the 'intelligent' direction to riding. That is, however, the majority view on motorbiking to which I'm proudly a minority

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      I was more saying that it seems like guys like that are on a bike because they want that "image", want to be seen on a bike in their sweet retro helmet and awesome glasses. I'm all about just being on a bike and cruising around. Of course I only watched about a minute of the video and am being a jerk.

      I still can't find the vid that most made me want to ride. Some guy stops to take a piss, then can't get his rig started again, and he gets pissed...
