Who can ever forget, Born to Be Wild? I remember it hitting me in the face in the opening of the 1969 film, Easy Rider, directed by . I had not bought my Beemer yet (see: Beemer Memories) and the life of a cycle rider was still a mysterious adventure I longed for (it was to come three years later). I will always remember the image of Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper riding along the highway with the wind whipping through their hair. WOW!
