Easy Rider

Question: What kind of dirt bikes are they riding in the opening scene of Easy Rider? Is it Harley?

Answer: Hopper is riding something British, Triumph or BSA. Hard to tell them apart and both were real common at the time.

Question: When George is killed by the hoodlums in the middle of the night one of them appears to be wearing a hat similar to the one worn previously by the prejudice guy in the restaurant. Are they supposed to be one and the same?

Answer: Correct: it is the same group of bigots, who has tracked them down in order to beat them.

Rooster of Doom

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the redneck cafe scene, George is seen entering wearing his helmet and he can be seen in a mirror to be sitting. When the camera switches to the guys' table, continuing the motion, George's helmet is sitting on the table. (01:04:47)
