Well, as far as bums on a bike go, this is a Honda, not a Guzzi, but do you all remember the movie, “Vanishing Point”? 


It may not be “Citizen Kane”, but that movie, along with “Easy Rider”, and “Electra Glide in Blue”, had as much to do with anything to put me in the saddle. As a very wee lad, me and my pals would jump the chain link fence at the local drive-in and appropriate a speaker where we would sit at the very back of the lot watching these motoplotation movies. It wasn’t long after seeing “Easy Rider” and wearing out the soundtrack LP, that I was able to get my hands on a Briggs and Stratton powered mini bike.....and here I am, still looking at bums on a bike.

Thanks for that, St. Augustine!

Btw, the original 1971 “Vanishing Point” (not the remake) is a hard to movie to find. However, it is available to stream from The Internet Archive, https://archive.org/ .Unlike some movies that I loved as a kid that I watch now and leave me scratching my head and saying, “what was I thinking?”, “Vasihing Point” holds up well and is really fun, the ultimate chase movie.

Wow, there’s hours of entertainment in this thread

Back in the 1970s and early 80s the UK importer for Guzzi’s and Ducati’s - Coburn & Hughes ran some wonderful ads, just right “ in tune” for those far-off times
