Biker Dudes



We are wrapping up Biker Dude week here at OPOD with this picture of these three fine young men on their Indian motorcycles. You know these had to be really cool motorcycles, and the guys are really decked out with riding boots and gloves, sans helmet.

  1. The guy on the far side is really decked out. It looks like he has a leather jacket, headlight and a real horn.
    The other two have a squeeze bulb horn and no head light and heavy sweaters.

    I wonder when they started to build what we call motorcycles today. Those like more like a beefed up bicycle.
    Love those long handle bars.

  2. Helmets? We don't need no stinkin' helmets!
    PJM: Thanks for the last two weeks of motorcycle pix. In my opinion, it doesn't get much better than that.

  3. Anyone know where this was taken? How many noticed the lady in the long white dress and black wasteband with the hat on? She is on the sidewalk walking away from the photographer. What about the sign on the grass in front of the second mans face. I wonder if it says "No motorcycles on the grass!" ?

  4. I also find the first man's hairstyle interesting. Was the giant wave the rebel look before the long hair rebel look? The other two have very short trimmed hair.

  5. An interesting site on the Indian cycle:

  6. Did anyone notice the reflection in the headlight of yesterday's photo? I really believe that to be a man on horseback that would be approaching the officer's left side. If you look in the extreme lower left of the headlight reflection, you can make out the man donning a helmet of some sort who I believe took the picture.
