“Easy Rider” was a classic biker movie that came out in 1969. If you were a young person during this era, you probably remember it well. The movie’s target audience was the young, counterculture, hippie generation who were struggling to identify with America. 

The movie was about 2 bikers, Wyatt, “Captain America” (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) who took off on their Harley-Davidson motorcycles for a cross-country adventure of a lifetime. Ultimately, they wanted to reach New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
