Long time since I've heard that one mentioned!
I was hooked on the show then - I was a senior in high school at the time and between Bronson and Easy Rider, I figured I had life figured out. I was getting into racing motocross and loved the way that Bronson would enter his 'Sportster' with the extended front end and road tires in hill climbs, moto events, etc. Talk about a dual sport! I read in Motorcycle magazine that they put a plastic panel on the side of the 250 single engine to make it look like a twin in the action shots. Despite the pseudo racing events, the show still had some pretty good plots - sort of a James Dean meets Easy Rider kind of thing.
By the way, do you remember the biker movie with Joe Namath, C C and Company, where the biker gang tried riding their choppers on the motocross track? The movie was hilarious, but it had Ann Margaret in it - that made up for a lot.

Don't you think that it's a ^%#$&# shame that Hunter S. Thompson wasn't an adventure rider? Imagine the ride reports...!
