An Old Video That’s Still Relevant

Peter Fonda and Evel Knievel are two of the most famous riders ever. In the video below the two guys go over motorcycle safety, the importance of wearing gear, and a whole lot more. It’s a public service announcement that everyone should watch, partly because it’s genuinely helpful and partly because it’s Fonda and Knievel.

What made me laugh about the video is at about the 4:30 mark, the have Kinevel do a massive jump to show that they aren’t “a couple of nervous old ladies.”

The video has Fonda do most of the talking, and it’s pretty long at almost 18 minutes. The video doesn’t just hit the typical ATGATT points, it also talks about techniques and tactics you can use to stay safe on the road. While some of the information is a bit dated, much of it is still relevant. There’s also something entertaining about taking it in this way. It goes to show that some things don’t change as quickly as the rest of the world.

There’s also a little quiz at the end that you can take. The quiz is pretty easy. It’s more just checking to make sure you were listening. So, what are you waiting for? Watch the video below and ace that quiz.
