    This might be a short thread. Any favorite songs about motorcycles, besides Born to be Wild ?

    I love this one, a great version of Richard Thompson's classic -



    Got any other motorcycle songs?

    I'm doing this on lunch at work so I cant see youtube links. I assume the first was 1952 Vincent Black Lightning? Awesome song. I always associate The Weight as a motorcycle song, just from Easy Rider. Also from that soundtrack The Byrds Ballad of easy Rider. Judas Priest Heading Out to the Highway. Don't shoot me, but Poison had a song called Ride the Wind, cool motorcycle tune.

    P.S. on July 15-17 they're showing Easy Rider in select theatres for the 50th anniversary.

    My uncle still maintains and rides his ‘50 Vincent. I love that song, but hate the lyric about handing her the keys. Black Lightning models didn’t have keys.

    I’m no biker, but this one always made me chuckle.
