    Anyone Looking For a New Bike?

    I mean, if I had lots and lots of money.. Young people won't understand but the man was my idol when I was young.

    I made my kids sit down with me and watch "Bullet" with me once when they were visiting. I told them is was one of the most exciting shows ever made. They could hardly sit through it, by the standards of the shows in their current day, it seemed awful tame to them.

    No man can eat 50 eggs..

    But if you have enough scratch you might be able to ride on the motorcycle of the man who did.

    Way outside my pay grade, but a cool piece of history for sure.

    Yep, Very cool. Loved the Great Escape, Bullit, pretty much anything he was ever in.

    I saw Bullitt again not too long ago and thought that the movie was still great. It may not be as exciting as movies nowadays, but the writing and acting was very good. I was surprised. Many movies do not age well, but the ones that do tend to be great.

    Paul, my dad sat my brother and I down to watch all the Bond movies when we were young. I still love them, the old ones anyways...He did the same with a couple other movies, Bullit and other McQueen movies were some of them. I haven't seen it in years, but will be renting it this weekend and will give it a shot having my daughter next to me when I watch it.
