Easy Ridin' DVD
(Two Motorcycle Safety Films
featuring Peter Fonda & Evil Knievel)
NOT SO EASY RIDER: Peter Fonda, channeling his "Easy Rider" popularity, introduces and then narrates this bike-safety film. And Evil Knievel, in his full motorcycle leather gear (just as you remember him), does a stunt and talks about appropriate riding gear. Fonda talks about how to navigate highways and city suburbs on a chopper. Backed by a 70's guitar soundtrack, Fonda also snipes at "sleepy" and "drunk" car drivers -- and how the biker should look out for them. USA, 1973, Color, 18 minutes.
MOTORCYCLE DRIVING TACTICS: A slightly grimmer warning about the perils of motorcycle riding. Shots of a cemetery ("the sleeping city") emphasize how bike riding has plenty of dangers, especially from car drivers. Includes shots of crash-test dummy motorcycles plowing into cars during tests at UCLA. USA, 1972, Color, 15 minutes.
Two films on one DVD. Total running time 33 minutes.
