http://greasermike.blogspot.com/2010...his-words.html

"I detest being called an artist. An artist uses his skills in an undisciplined fashion. The average artist could no more paint a sign than he could be an astronaut. The sign painter uses the same technique as an artist, but he uses it in disciplined things. Lettering was established long before any of us ever lived and you don't change it. Laws of engineering were established long before any of us ever lived and you don't change that either. The artist thinks he can change anything he wants to. I consider all of my work to be of a disciplined nature, and I can survive only in this kind of environment."

"I was fooling around with cycles long before I ever set foot into a four-wheeled contraption. But when I finally did, I couldn't for the life of me see how anyone could drive one of those tanks. So it was back to motorcycles. The best bike I ever owned was a 1930 Scott Flying Squirrel. I really don't know why I was dumb enough to let it out of my hands, but I did. It was a water-cooled two-stroke that was designed and engineered by pure genius. I think the best all around machine these days is the Triumph TR5. You can get almost anywhere in reasonable comfort and reliability on one. The best looking motorcycle on the road today is the Norton Roadster. It has real good lines and lots of go. "


"There is coming upon us now the greatest era in motorcycling the world has ever seen. Thanks to Honda's fantastic engineering and marketing concepts, there is lots of good competition again. We are now enjoying such wonders as four cylinders...again...water cooling...again...and in a tremendous versatility in cycles we've only imagined before."


"Steve McQueen had the first two Honda Fours in this country and he gave them to me to tear into and customize. Upon examination I saw that the engine was kind of a small copy of the NSU-based Munch engine from Germany. I found out through some research, that for the most part, I was right. The difference was that Honda made an unsaleable thing into a saleable commodity and did all but begin the super bike thing we're in the middle of today. Because of them, we can only imagine what's coming next."


- Kenneth "Von Dutch" Howard, March 1972 issue of Road Rider
