Was that "CHIPS" music on that first video?
Very cool video, tho!
"Beauty of Nature..." yup..
I want some red leathers like that guy has.

Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
"Of course we don't have to demonstrate our superiority. Particularly when the sports car drivers try to challenge us and pull off when the light is still yellow".
Quote from the film. Wonderful stuff. Dated. But wonderful. The safety comments are always applicable however.

I'd like to hear the original German narration. I suspect the lines "Of course we don't have to demonstrate our superiority. Particularly when the sports car drivers try to challenge us and pull off when the light is still yellow", might have been, "You vill demonstrate your superiority at all times."

Very cool retro stuff.
That was a very elegant move the guy in the red leathers made by spinning the bike around on the centerstand.

I sure like those bikes --- there were at least a couple of those parked at the vintage display in Johnson City that got my attention. Nice soundtrack, too.

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.
