He's the reason I became a rider



When I was a kid my brother Jerry took me to watch the great escape and I immediately got hooked on Motorcycles when Steve McQueen made that jump over the Fence

Bikerted - surely this monument ought to be somewhere on the German Swiss border?

Like Steve McQueen
All I need's a fast machine
I'm gonna make it all right
Like Steve McQueen
Underneath your radar screen
You'll never catch me tonite o I ain't takin' shit off no one
Baby that was yesterday
I'm an all American rebel
Making my big getaway
Yeah you know it's time
I gotta fly

I went to see the Art of the Motorcycle at a museum a couple summers ago and I know you aren't supposed to touch the museum pieces. Well the little devil in me kept watching the docent to look away from me standing in front of Steve McQueen's motorcycle and when she did I reached over and touched the hand grip...I felt his spirit as I did. It was awesome!
