Welcome to Friday Fudge. If it’s weird, funny, or strange motorcycle news, or it just plain won’t fit anywhere else on the site – you’ll find it here.

You meet the nicest people on a Hero

Here’s yet another amusing motorcycle commercial from India. It’s a funny thing – they don’t have any dirty, smelly bikers with open pipes sticking it to The Man, yet somehow they still manage to sell a gazillion motorcycles a year, while our market is nowhere near that healthy in North America.

And here’s that era’s counterpart to Sons of Anarchy.
