One of my favorite blogs in terms of riding and excellent photography is Steve William's "Scooter in the Sticks" blog.
A posting he did today, highlighting a youtube video of a commercial from TC Bank in Taiwan struck a chord with me and I thought I'd share that video with you as well. If you want to see excellent photography from a rider....go see Steve's blog!
or look at it on youtube: LINK
The thoughts that came to mind as I watched this video the first time:
1. One hell of a fitting way to say their goodbyes to their departed friends and loved ones.
2. You can make lifelong friends by motorcycling.
3. You're never too old to ride if you really want to bad enough.
4. Riding can, temporarily, relieve you of life's worries and pains; so you can get a better grip on them after the ride.
I need to go for a ride....
Update: I was reading the comments made on the youtube site and one of them read:
The original movie is a documentary film name "Go Grandriders". The whole project is launching by "Taichung City Hondao Senior Citizen's welfare Foundation". "Hondao" is a NGO which major task to improve the life quality of senior citizen.
A little googling later by me: Taiwan Documentary "Go Grandriders". It's in Chinese of course but you'll get the idea....the commercial is based on these real life riders in the 80's
A Long Day
