    Broderick Crawford chases motorcycle riding robbers

    Another cool Highway Patrol story, but this time the bad guys are on motorcycles, Harley Panheads. Dan Mathews (Crawford) drives a cool Mercury. The robbers use a truck to hide the bikes after the heist, and to make their getaway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8w0YGnpWUw

    Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance

    A friend just gave me this book to read. I haven't started it yet, haven't read a full book in at least two years. Anyone ever read this? And is it worth the time? Sent from my SM-G360V using Tapatalk
