Steve McQueen in Sports Illustrated

It might just have to be all motorcycles all week. I certainly get fixated on a subject from time to time, but this was too good to not post. While researching On Any Sunday I read a few things about this 1971 issue of Sports Illustrated with Steve McQueen on the cover. Next thing you know, my copy from eBay arrived at my door in amazing condition. So I thought it would be good to scan the article for your reading pleasure. There is a great little story about dirt bikes and Dennis Hopper on page 61 that is worth checking out. I could only imagine what it would be like to run into those guys on the street.

    That last pic looks JUST like my father and I… okay, that’s a lie, it looks nothing like us, or a situation we ever could have been in, but a boy can dream.

    That last photo is indeed my dad and I….he’s asking “why can’t you do that big triple like your little brother?”

    Seriously, great post!
