Masters

Not only masters of their machines, but also masters of their fate. Instead of going on what little relief was available to them, begging essentially, they decided to make the best of their condition. They are to be admired for overcoming a difficulty in life seldom experienced by any of us.

Cool

I like the look of those rad bikes.

The Herb and Joe Show

I keep coming back to these photos of Herb and Joe and I'm more impressed every time. As a bicycle rider of more than fifty years, I can appreciate how difficult these stunts were. Although there must have been some truly painful practice sessions, these guys mastered their machines.
