Arguably the most bad ass guys to ever ride a bike. If you have never see Eddie Roman’s ‘Lord Voelker’ sit back and enjoy Dave roasting everything in site!
I remember seeing Voelker at the Meet the Street contest in Salem back in ’89 or so and I was blown away. Seeing him ride was so much more impressive than what I had seen in the magazines. He boosted so much higher than most and was really smooth, I gained a lot of respect for Dave that day.
It seemed to me like he deserved much more credit and respect than he got at the time.
I don’t know if I had ever seen this before. It was great but I wish there was more original footage. Voelker rules.
[Confession] I met Voelker at a bike shop show in central CA (Hanford, maybe?) in the early 90’s when I was a disciple of Chris Moeller and all things S&M. When I got the chance to talk to him the only thing I asked was “How can you ride for a sold-out company like GT?”
Instead of killing me, which would have been appropriate, he said mockingly “You must be pretty hardcore.”
I was an idiot. Feels good to get that off my chest though.
