Motorcycle Documentary - Fifty Years of Kicks

“Men do not quit playing because they grow old, they grow old because they quit playing.” - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Fifty Years of Kicks is a 20 minute video documentary featuring Paul Rodden (right) and Larry Murray (left); two experienced motorcycle riders who continue to do what they love despite age and health issues.

Fifty Years of Kicks, is a collaboration between and Traction off-road e-rag.
We've seen too many videos with teenagers doing double backflips, so with Fifty Years of Kicks, we wanted to show older adults pushing their bodies to the limit. We were tired of saying, “I wish I could have tried that when I was young”, we wanted to say, “I want to be like them when I grow up!”

We would like to continue to produce episodes profiling other interesting characters in motorcycling and are looking for sponsors to make that possible. We want to tell the stories of the people who participate, the reasons why these people engage in a sport with inherent risks and dangers, and why they can’t live without these two wheeled machines.

Enjoy the show!

    Inspiring, ride till you die.
    Really dig this, your photography talents translate well to video.

  4. Budman Says:

    Excellent video. I loved every minute of it. As a rider with physical concerns it's an inspiration to see guys refusing to give it up when no one would blame them if they did. Kudos, excellent stuff.

    Thanks guys! Yeah that's the crux of it, Larry and Paul don't see any reason to stop riding. It's like the quote at the beginning suggests - They AREN'T old, BECAUSE they are still playing!
    Can't wait to make more videos.
