    Easy Rider

    I am watching EASY RIDER tonight. From TMC Recorded
    Movie Cost $400K to make. lol

    This movie did it for me. I bought a 650 Bonneville I thought I was way cool

    Till I T- Boned a Ford on a two lane blacktop, Lady pulled out from a gravel road.
    Said she did not see me. Me I went over the hood and landed in a ditch, 50 ft. away.
    She came over and said should I call a Doctor?
    I said lady I think I need a hospital. I don't look good in shorts. LOL 105 days in a hospital.
    1 year in a cast. Off work for 3 years. But SS sent me to Electronic School so I did have a Trade.
    I did not have to look in the paper for man wanted strong back.

    I love the movie, not the ending. But people did not look at us bikers the same in 1969 as 2018.
    I got $39K for the accident. I got $22K after the Lawyer, American Family settled 3 days before trial.
    I put $14K down on a $43K home and at 26 years old I thought I had it made.... Payments were $300
    on loan at 8%. LOL My brother got $1 million 1 hundred thousand. In May, for a wreck in Ks. with no
    helmet, and 11 cracks in his skull. He did not get that much, because everything is OK. He is not the same person.

    You have a favorite Movie?

    One of my favorites.

    Main guy Kyle McGlothlin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_MacLachlan found an ear. "It's a strange world we live in Sandy" She was played by Laura Derne.

    I have a DVD of the movie.

    Apocalypse Now was a great movie and is base on the novel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_Darkness Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. It was an ugly book, but a good platform for Apocalypse Now.

    I love We were Soldiers as one of my favorites. Apocalypse now is one I view now and then love the Beach scene in the movie over all. Air Cav.
