Friday Picture Fun: Star Wars and bikes

Posted Aug 05 2011 2:05pm

As a child of Generation X, I loved Star Wars as a kid. Actually, love is probably not strong enough of a word. Not only did I go see all three of the original trilogy in the movie theaters about a dozen times, I was the pride of the block with toys of the Milleinimununum Falcon, AT-AT, and a squad of 8, count ‘em, 8 Storm Troopers. My Star Wars heart was broken one day in 6th grade when my Grandmother cleaned out our garage giving away my entire toy collection while I was in bed with the chicken pox. My heart grew colder as I was forced to endure George Lucas pissing on the legacy of the original films with the prequels. Fortunately, I have come to terms with these childhood loses and now am happy to share Star Wars again, this time with my children watching the Cartoon Network series Star Wars: The Clone Wars .

With season four of The Clone Wars starting up again and the Punch It, Chewy ride scheduled for this evening , I decided to skip the regular Friday film and combine my childhood and adult loves by sharing these Star Wars related bike pictures (plus one funny Star Wars/bicycle film at the end.)
