Great find of a classic promo film of the King of the UJMs but, if you can get 160 mpg (miles per gallon) from the '73 Z1 you will go down in history as the most successful fuel economy wizard... they'll still be using your name in conjunction with energy conservation a thousand years from now!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
