(Cool Whipz Feature): The Tangerine Dream Machine; Introducing The Orange Crush
The Tangerine Dream Machine; Introducing The
Some of you may not be old enough to remember the Denver Broncos defense of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. It’s been a while for me also however, I still vaguely remember all the attention and excitement the Broncos garnered from both NFL teams and fans alike. This Denver defensive unit went on to become one of the most exciting defenses of its time. They became known as The Orange Crush, named after a popular soft drink, because of their number one run defense and orange home uniforms. Those orange uniforms were replaced in 1997 and although The Orange Crush defense no longer exist, the saga and excitement continues, albeit in reincarnate fashion. Fast forward to today.
On any given Sunday if you are cruising around the city of Houston,Texas (Home of the Texans), you might spot The Orange Crush. Don’t look for defensive linemen pounding opposing offenses instead, this Orange Crush will be pounding the concrete on two wheels. As a matter of fact, the only thing today’s Orange Crush has in common with the stand out Denver defense is that it attracts alot of attention and creates excitement! Furthermore, the same year those orange uniforms were retired in Denver, was the same year our featured “Cool Whip”, a 1997 Harley-Davidson Heritage Springer, was produced. Today this Heritage Springer is far from stock. It has been fully customized by Fly Rydes Kustom Toyz and is the pride and joy of owner “SHANNO”, the National VP & Founding Member of Hard Riders MC. The Orange Crush is not a bike that could be bought, it’s one that had to be built!
