I think you got them all right, albiet with a few spelling errors that we don't keep track of here on this board. :wink:

I missed #1 and the first part of #10, so put me down for a grade of 85%. Since I was born in 1949, I should have aced that mother bugger, but maybe senility is creeping into the ol' gray matter. :)

You confirmed it. I'm old! I knew all but one without any hesitation. Now what???? Do I get to keep my Goldwing or do I have to turn it in along with my driver's license? :lol:

That was fun, but I didn't see any motorcycle questions. There must have been something about motorcycles uniques to our earlier years. I'm very new to the sport, but somebody out there should be able to think of a motorcycle memory of the general public that might have been included. So, those of you among us old farts that have been riding for years and years and then some more years, let's hear from you.

The Big Bopper was on the plane too.
So was Ritchie Valens.
A thirty-something friend of ours was watching La Bamba, not knowing who Richie Valens was. It never occurred to her what happened to him until the end of the movie when he was getting on the plane with Buddy Holly....

I feel so old! (I knew all the answers, too.)

I thought the questions were too easy, that's why I cracked wise.

Pop culture bike questions.
What did Brando ride in the Wild One?
What did the Fonz ride?
What did McQueen ride in the Great Escape?
What bike did Al Bundy wreck?
What guest voice did Homer Simpson fight in the Circle of Death?

Arn Butt did pretty well. He only got #7 wrong.

The "good luck" reference was precious.

1950 Triumph Thunderbird 6T
What did the Fonz ride?
Various Triumphs and Harleys
What did McQueen ride in the Great Escape?
For the filming of the climactic scene in The Great Escape in which Steve (as Virgil Hilts) hijacks a German warbike and becomes the center of one of cinema's most famous chase scenes, a little bit of improvising was done, as explained by Steve to writer William Nolan: "We had four bikes for this film. I was running a TT Special 650 Triumph. We painted it olive drab and put on a luggage rack and an old seat to make it look like a wartime BMW. We couldn't use a real BMW, not at the speeds we were running, since those old babies were rigid-frame jobs, and couldn't take the punishment."

What bike did Al Bundy wreck?
??
What guest voice did Homer Simpson fight in the Circle of Death?
John Goodman (as Meathook)
