just making idle chat bored waiting for the next trip so who is your bike hero? mine would be foggy sheene lois austin and anyone who has done more than 10 years (light hearted banter) surtees ummm there are so many.....
I admire and wonder about many motorcyclists that came before and many who are with us still that I've not met. I've ridden with and known a few listed here and read the words of others.
But the ones passed on can never know how we feel about them or how much we honor them, but the living legends are still here and deserve everyone's admiration and love ... NOW ... while still with us.
Just a few favorites:
Those passed on :
Steve McQueen (American, actor, MC racer)
Keenan Winn (American, actor, lifelong MC devotee)
Danny Liska (American, MC traveling pioneer, BS artist, writer)
Robert Fulton (American, early MC explorer, writer)
Joey Dunlap (Irish, best there ever was at IOM)
Lee Marvin (American, Actor, life long MC lover/rider)
Dennis Hopper (American, Artist, Actor, Patron of the arts, rider)
Those still with us:
Dick Mann (American, Racer, builder, legend)
Kenny Roberts (American, GP Champion, team owner, legend)
Ted Simon (British, Writer of best ever MC travel book,World MC traveler)
Gregory Frasier, (American, Writer, Professional world traveler, Sexologist)
Dan Walsh (British, Best MC Journalist ever, novelist, world traveler)
I agree with all of the above, all cool dudes, just to throw two more in there ERNESTO 'CHE' GUEVARA. (very dead) and ALBERTO GRANADO (alive in the usa i believe).
round south America on a 500 Norton 'La Poderosa' two up in 1952, crazy guys.
I'll give Ted simon my vote, Jupiter's travels got me into this, it may have happened anyway but I am not sure it would have.
An honourable mention also goes to Glynn Roberts who I met in the US in 1990 and taught me a lot of the in and out of overland motorcycle travel.
He also does a lot of hard work in putting Ripley together.
once I had seen Evel Knievel
doing those Jump's my brother and I just had to get a bike.
paper round and washing car's for a year and we bought a second hand one of these off a mate's dad....
summer holiday's of 1973 were spent in the field building ramps from old door's and jumping them and trying to get both wheel's off the ground at the same time dreaming of Jumping like our Hero Evel Knievel
