The True Duel Meaning to our Song ” Ive Had a Good Ride”

Posted in Rallys, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 21, 2010 by The MeanStreet Riders


In response to many people who have enjoyed the lyrics of “Ive Had Good Ride and requested more information about the song and in celebration of women riders and return to the Sturgis Rally , and the South Dakota hills we introduce our song “I’ve Had a Good Ride” from our BandPage and MyStore tabs.
In addition to the grateful reunion with old friends theme the song also references real life teachings and how not to believe everything you hear or read in the media with the line “ don’t read all the writing on the wall”. It also invites you to take life “all in” and enjoy the good times but also take an inner look at the end of the day or your life and ask yourself have you “Had a Good Ride”? In keeping with the Sturgis theme and a tribute to women riders we also wanted to show off David Uhl’s most recent Sturgis themed painting “70 years and Counting”. The painting features incredible detail from Devils Tower right down to the 1938 Jackpine Races map in our lady contestants hand. Here’s to all the lady riders everywhere and hoping you always “Have a Good Ride” through life.
The first four MeanStreet Riders songs are available across the world at all I Tunes and Amazon Stores

The Real Story Behind our song “Rollin’ On”

Posted in Great Roads, Music, Our Riding Culture, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 14, 2010 by The MeanStreet Riders

In memory of Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda’s ride long ago while filming“Easy Rider” the film that introduced the world to the riding culture we introduce the ballad “Rolling On”.
The song which is also available from our new ITunes Store owes it’s haunting string sound to legendary performer Sam Bush and captures the… souls of the American Indians that existed long ago along the Route 66 route and in the Taos, NM area where Dennis once lived. Many of the lost Americana towns they went through while filming the movie are now gone but not forgotten. The song also captures the realization of how complicated life has become in this confusing world and how riding can clear the mind and cleanse the soul even today.
