Nice video....

A few weeks after DH completes his radiation treatments for cancer, he'll take an epic journey on his motorcycle.

....sometimes dreams should be lived.

That was awesome!! More commercials should be like this! Poignant and moving, yet with a laugh or two!

Great geezer story, even if only an ad.

Walter Mitty lives!

I would rather go out in a blaze of glory doing stuff I love, than stare at the ceiling over a hospital bed any day.

It does make me at least want to ride the bike to see the relatives in DE. In reality it's about a 3.5 hour ride and I've spent longer than that on the bike locally. The neatest part would be the ride over Chesapeake Bay Bridge (I gotta have a helmet camera for that!) and the most dangerous part would be getting to the Bay Bridge. It's that last that's been putting me off it.
