Wow, hard to believe that Steve McQueen was writing dirt bike tests for Pop Science....way back in 1966....cover price? An amazing 35 cents.....its McQueens byline and everything appears to have been written from his viewpoint.....how cool is that....the lead pic of him jumping without a helmet on, is sort of lame, but he mentions to "don't do this" in a sidebar in the story inside, so it looks like it was more 'their' idea than "his". They also don't test all the bikes they list in the comparison.....and say so later in the copy......The pics look like they were shot in the field next to Ekins shop in the Valley or something......still, what a coup to have this icon original "action" hero do the tests himself.......how cool is that?
