In contrast to his stage image the old Buddy was quite the lad in real life, good score guys.
I wish I still had the magazine, but I remember reading the story years ago about how they bought those Triumphs. If I remember correctly they went to the H-D dealership and no one would talk to them. So, they went to Trump shop and bought all 3 bikes paying cash. Next they bought new Levis pants and jackets as well as engineer boots. Then they road across Texas running into rain and ruining their clothes. I think the magazine was Classic Bike, maybe 17 years ago. Great video.
