Remember when you could meet the nicest people on a Honda? Well, The Hondells rode that wave all the way to number nine on the national charts with this 1964 cover of the Beach Boys’ “Little Honda.” The innocent fun of riding motorcycles, coupled with this surf band’s squeaky-clean image made the song accessible to mainstream America. Today, the song serves as a reminder of the tremendous growth of our sport in the 1960s. What could be friendlier?

It’s not a big motorcycle
Just a groovy little motorbike
Its more fun that a barrel of monkeys

That two wheel bike
We’ll ride on out of the town
To any place I know you like
