I'm going with the Byrd's version of that song, even though Carole King wrote it.  They really personified the song in Easy Rider.  I saw some parts of that movie a couple of months ago and can't imagine why I watched it in the first place way back when.

I can't imagine much more fun than to have a big motorcycle and to ride around on the open roads out west -- as in the scene of them crossing the Columbia River.
Be Prepared.

Yeah, that sounds like fun.  When I look at that movie today, I think about how much freedom we had back then to do what we wanted.  I never drove a motorcycle, but I had a 65 Mustang convertible, and even though it was used and had its problems, it was heaven to drive anywhere with the top down and my 8 track player.  I wish I had kept that car.  It was dark blue with a white convertible top.  Woo-hoo!
