Not so Easy - A Motorcycle Safety Film


Have you seen the movie 'easy rider'? No ?!! Do you even ride bro ?! That was a rhetorical question by the way. Just kidding!! Peter Fonda is a famous Hollywood actor who achieved a cult following in the 60s for his movie 'Easy Rider'. 
Though the lifestyle shown in the movie is not something to be followed as a biker (in my opinion), the instructions shared in the video by Peter definitely are. This documentary is possibly shot in the 70s, but all riding tips are quite elementary and hence stand true to this day. And emphasizing the importance of safe riding habits is none other than the famous (did I say famous, read as 'the iconic') stunt rider 'Evel Knievel'.

Note: The video is shot abroad (probably US) where people drive on the right side of the road (opposite to what we do in India), so some of the instructions need to be understood (/translated) correctly considering Indian road rules. I have watched the complete video and most of the techniques mentioned are generic and hence can be followed by riders from any country.

Hope you learned something from this video today.

Ride Safe & Ride Far,
