Before my time but may explain why this ethos was considered truth by the generation before me and somewhat carried on today.

Hey if it sells motorcycles ?

That was kinda cool in a goofy sort of way.

So they were riding in parade formation at ten under back then too?

I had thought that this thread was related to a helmet law. Turns out it has a nice old video.

This is a pic of me on my 1952 Harley K model shortly after I bought it in 1962.  That was my one and only Harley, and yes, that was my riding gear back then.

The thing that I thought of after watching this old promo film was that H-D was selling a full line of motorcycles . Everything from entry level riders to seasoned riders.
It seems they lost that vision in the 80's and are now suffering from that mistake .
