Fantastic. I got goosebumps watching. Expertly captures and explains why we must ride. Too bad it's a commercial for a bank. How great it would be if it were advertising a motorcycle brand, say.... Kawasaki?.....

Thanks for posting it magnum!

I feel so manipulated...in a good way, heh.

That's what professional advertising is all about - telling a story, tugging the heartstrings....

Olgivy & Mather's Olgivy Asia group did it, O&M are owned by WPP plc.

"WPP plc (LSE: WPP, NASDAQ: WPPGY) is a global communications services company with its main management office in London, United Kingdom and its executive office in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.[3] It is the world's largest advertising company measured by revenues, and has over 2,400 offices in 107 countries.[2][4] It owns a number of advertising, public relations and market research networks, including Grey, Hill & Knowlton, JWT, Ogilvy Group, TNS and Young & Rubicam.[2]

Its primary listing is on the London Stock Exchange and it is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. It has a secondary listing on NASDAQ."

Ah, another fan of The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy! Now all we need is the question for the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Univers, and Everything - 42. Which is, of course, what is 7 times 8?

That is a tremendous video, and something of a birthday gift for me. Though nowhere near the average age of the gentlemen in the video, I greeted the first day of my 66th year this morning, and I'm loving it.

Perhaps 20 years from now I'll still be riding - I'll dream of it anyway.

Way to go Tiwanese old guys!

I'm only half that old, but I want to get where they are some day and I want to do it on two wheels.

Thanks, that was great.
