    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Quote from the film. Wonderful stuff. Dated. But wonderful. The safety comments are always applicable however.

    Yes, but do you realize that in Germany, when the lights go from red to green, there is a brief period where the red and yellow lights are both on? It's kind of a heads-up warning to get your car in gear and get ready to go. It can be taken as jumping the green or like the christmas tree at the drag strip.

    i just want to be able to rotate my bike around like the guy does in the first video. i am quite confident i would drop the k11 on myself. that would not be ideal.

    maybe you could cut off some parts and get down to that weight.
    Leathers would look pretty funny then, though.
