You Tube Tuesday: Opening Credits of Easy Rider

Freedom in America

Easy Rider, a 1969 road movie depicts two bikers named Wyatt, nicknamed ‘Captain America’ (Peter Fonda), and Billy (Dennis Hopper) who travel through the American Southwest and South and experience its land and people.

Wyatt dresses in American flag-adorned leather, while Billy dresses in Native American-style buckskin pants and shirts and a bushman hat.

Even though everyone dies in the end, this movie has launched thousands of careers in the motorcycle industry, hundreds of businesses and kept rock and roll pumping along the ribbons of asphalt across America.
