An inspiration.

As I watched this TV show back in 69' I didn't realize at the time what kind of an impact it would have on me. I was only 17 at the time so the "Zen" part about it didn't influence me at all. What never left me was his traveling around the countryside on a motorcycle. It got me thinking what it might be like to wander around so freely. Almost 10 years later I found out. That's when I purchased my 78' Goldwing, which carried me to 49 States, every Province in Canada and a little bit of Mexico. Some of the stories my riding produced and the people I met reminded me so much of "Then Came Bronson".

The great importance of this show was that it portrayed a biker who was mild mannered and not the wild drunken criminal that the biker movies were about at that time. He was a likable guy who you could trust. That's who I try to be when I'm out there traveling around. I really wish I could see the show again.
