Today is an actor Henry Winkler's birthday. He is most-known for playing the “King of Cool” , “The Fonz” in "Happy Days".
According to Henry Winkler, Fonz never actually rode any motorcycles during the ten year Happy Days television run. Winkler, never rode a bike in real life either, he has dyslexia, which made it difficult for him to co-ordinate the clutch, throttle and brake. Instead, the bikes were mounted on a piece of wood with wheels to make it look like he was riding. Kinda sad.
I liked the fact that even though the story was taken place in the birth place of Harley-Davidson, Fonz's machine was a Triumph.
