Re: “Shush Up, You Boys!

"The Wild Angles" with Peter Fonda, Bruce Dern and Nancy Sinatra, directed by the King of the tiny budget himself, ---Roger Corman, was a film I will never forget. In 1966 I was 11 years old. One Friday evening, me and my buddy, Steve, decided to go to the local theater to check out the new movie about the Hells Angles. This film had quite an effect on both of us, but Steve was stupendously illuminated. The next day, I went over to his house and he was in his garage, standing next to his Schwinn Sting Ray bicycle, while holding a wrench. He had just lowered the seat all the way down to the frame, raised the butterfly handlebars, and removed the fenders. He'd chopped his stingray !! My jaw dropped amd my knees began to shake after coming to the realization that in front of my eyes was the epitome of "Hip, Slick and Cool". As far as I'm concerned, the climactic moment of this film is when this flock of outlaws stormed into a motorcycle shop that was owned by Hispanics when Peter Fonda, the prez, made the announcement of their arrival with a question."Which one of you taco benders stole an Angles machine !!!" (when I saw this same scene 30 years later I laughed so hard my girlfriend had to sedate me) A couple of weeks ago, I stopped at a convenience store for some gas where there were a few members of a biker club parked at the gas pumps, most likely on their way to Sturgess. No, not all bikers are short, fat balding, wannabees but this group sure was, The "old ladies" definitely looked a lot tougher then the "old men". Some of them were actually pretty scary. I'm sure that some of the shocks and tires on those bikes were undergoing more stress then the Baghdad Fire Department !! One of the guys was stomping around the parking lot while extending his arms away from the side of his chest in a attempt to achieve the gargantuan bicep look. Then in a very loud voice he said, "Why are they making us prepay for our gas, ---- because we're bikers ? !!! I couldn't help myself, I had to respond. I looked at him and said, "Which one of those taco benders stole an angles machine ? !!! He looked at me with an expression of mass confusion, not knowing whether he was supposed to get mad or not. Getting a little worried that he might decide to sick his wife on me, I hopped in my truck and went home. I have a lot of friends who ride and I'm sure there are some great clubs out there, but I do agree that the short fat balding, biker who likes to make noise is becoming more prevalent these days.
