    Cool Not so Easy - A Motorcycle Safety Film from 1973 ;-)

    Hi,

    Came across this today and thought I would share with the rest of you. I actually took the time to write out the questions asked at the end of the film, so test yourselves before watching it just for fun and see how many you get right.

    Not so Easy - A Motorcycle Safety Film Narrated by Peter Fonda With Special Guest Evel Knievel

    It was a blast to watch if even just to see so many of the cars I grew up with back on the roads, let alone watching Peter Fonda and Evel Knievel talk about motorcycle safety!*

    Ride Safe!

    I really enjoyed that film. All the cars alone make it worth the watch....classic.
    I noticed them doing a lot of things we now consider unsafe practices.
    Funny when they speak of the "slot" and how dangerous it is yet now it is common to "lane split" in California and touted as safe.

    Classic!
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Of course the best advice is:

    Stay the Hell off the Highways and ride the dirt trails, whenever possible
