Me: What should I do for turn signals?Tom was arrogant, opinionated, and a wee bit racist. I forgave the latter as he grew up in a time where institutional racism was still allowed in the United States*. Those old imprints can be hard to reprogram, especially for someone as pigheaded as Tom. As far as being arrogant and opinionated, those qualities require no apology. It suited him.
Tom: Are you building a fucking bagger or a chopper?
Me: I'm trying to think of a good color for the bike.
Tom: Are you gonna ride it or stand in your driveway washing it all day? Paint it black.
Me: Like my new truck?
Tom: About time you got rid of that old rattling bucket of bolts.
The long awaited prequel to one of the highest grossing independent films of all time. "Easy Rider" defined the thoughts and values of a generation. The Prequel "Easy Rider: The Ride Back" shows through flashbacks how these much loved characters became the classic icons of a generation.I'll reserve judgment until I've seen it.
Millions of fans around the world know the throb of the Captain America Harley Davidson, the roar of that great 60s music, the thrill of the open road. Now a whole new generation can experience the same sense of freedom through these modern day road rebels in "Easy Rider: The Ride Back".
During (Tom's) drag racing years (1987-2001) he proved his abilities in the area of engine performance. He won many events in the Midwest including races at Sturgis, South Dakota; Grove Creek, Minnesota; Havana, Illinois, and the Harley Drags in Humboldt, Iowa. At the Harley Drags in Humbolt, Iowa he set two national records, one in Elapsed Time, and one in Miles Per Hour.For you Ironhead owners, Tom is a huge Ironhead fan. He is definitely a guy worth knowing if you own an old Sportster. Those records mentioned above were set on an Ironhead drag bike. They can do miracles on any V-twin head.
