Liberty Motorcycles And Sticking To Your Guns

Vimeo is a great site for skimming through videos and groups, for simply watching TV. The small biography styled documentaries are fare more interesting than what cable tv provides, because they aren't littered with crappy commercials and focus in on the subject in a far superior way. 

Recently I found a cool video on Liberty Motorcycles out of Philadelphia that works on most any type of bike as long as it is vintage. One of the cool aspects of the video is when Adam Cramer, talks on learning the trade of mechanics becoming a lost art. I can attest to this and witness the same notion weekly, while talking to individuals that are pushing for a career path, which maybe it isn't quite for them. Learning the ins and outs of anything mechanical is something most everyone should learn to understand. Knowledge is lost, if it isn't consistently being challenged and put into use. 

Go fix something mechanical, just for the sense of accomplishment.
