Some of you may be familiar with the movie, <span style="text-decoration: underline">The Motorcycle Diaries,</span> where a young Che Guevara and Alberto Granado ride across South America. The movie is based on a true story. These two medical students observe the poverty and disease in Chile, Argentina and Peru. Their experiences turned them into revolutionarys with Guevera eventually participating in the fall of Cuba (when Castro took over).

Anyway, the reason I'm mentioning this is because they used a <span style="font-weight: bold">Norton 500</span> for their trip.

Alberto died this week. More info on him -HERE- (http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2011/03/05/world/americas/AP-CB-Cuba-Obit-Ches-Friend.html?hpw)
