That would sound great while I'm racing down the Clyde Mountain. Not to be heard in the shed while fitting the rocker box.
Cheers

That one I'd use riding up Jambaroo Mountain Rd. I'll have to get one of those ipod things. Nah I like the sound of the pipes *good3*.

 Weell.. all this headrushin' stuff is no match for the true motorcycle on a mountain song....probably the first ever song I heard about a motorcycle, and made me want one....when the Man was in town a couple of years back, I accidentally cornered him and asked what kind of bike he had in mind/would have been riding when he wrote that song, I showed him a picture of my Beeza, which I'd painted like this to decide which colour I preferred; he showed me a picture of his Indian...no pleeces or cars died... *eek*

my shed music does change quite often, present lot includes down loads from Amazon - Holy Johnson/ Dalrty "going back home" - Quo "Quostic" and these guys

here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWsujgu9JGs


bass needs to be just about at the point where stuff falls off shelves.

It's a funny old world, this afternoon I attended a meal to celabrate 21 years of the local U3A (university of the third age)  old folks having fun following interests they missed out on while working (engineering museums , History, Science for me but all sorts catered for, now after meal entertainment was a woman playing harp followed by a group playing recorder type things, bully for them but defo not my cup of tea, however politeness prevailed and I (think ) I clapped in all the right places

 Works ok for me, maybe not available in your country... I sometimes get that- definitely not 'Thunder' ?

 It's Arlo Guthries' "Motorcycle Song"....there's a heap of different versions, take your pick-le...there's even a bunch of different "true meanings of the relevance of the pickle"

 Edit, ps- I tried Bills link and also had a "video not available"...

Here's one that does never apply to any of us.. *smile*..not a bike song, but local (normally ska/punk) band Blowhard, the band who 'sung' it, have for heaps of years played on boat cruises and at bush bash parties to fundraise for local race outfit, Team Stranglers (TSR)...well known in the B.E.A.R.S system....

 oh yeah, concept and language warning... *smile*- I hope it works *????*

Haven't gotten to ride an A10 yet, but Radar Love- Golden Earring makes my throttle hand twist the loud knob real hard. Hot Rod Heart by Fogarty and Runnin' Down a Dream by Tom Petty gets me going faster as well. Of course, there's Maybelline (Chuck Berry), Hot Rod Lincoln (Commander Cody) and many others for longer rides, but these are good for commuting to work (about 30 miles of twisty 2-lane).
