hadn't seen that one.
Thanks for the post.
Well written and the presenter seemed actually intrigued by the subject and comfortable in the words he spoke. (semi-dry British delivery not withstanding).
Great footage...Probably best I've seen regarding Motorcycle shows (and commercial advertising for that matter. There's a 'crispness to what I call 'a British style' of photography. Reference "Top Gear" magazine and TV show).
Bloody well jumps right out at you.
Footage is reminiscent of the quality of stuff you see on "Top Gear". (there's that name again...can ya tell I'm a fan???).

(Dam those Brits!!! ya gotta love their love of all things 'motoring' ( and their well known respect for handling over shear power).....It truly shows in the quality of there cinematography. Lots of playin' with shutter angles and such......Fun stuff).

Thanks again for the post.
Be well.
Ride safe.
Peace.

and yes....that sure did sound like a ( "BRAPPPP") fart to me...and hard to miss at that.
Though the recordists did seem to do a pretty nice job of catching the sounds of the bikes both on and off.( good wind protection never hurts though it could have been more dynamic)
go figure.

coffee cups, I see no coffee cups

it does look like the commentator has just finished a mug of the other (compared to alcohol) national drink.. tea, and none of that iced muck y'get in the states. heres a hint giys beer should be at room temperature and tea should be hot, neither benefit from being chilled, and beer doens't improve injecting it with CO2

Suspect MCN went for a ride, ended at a roadside greasy spoon (think diner but tackier) scoffed the obligatory bacon butty, swilled down with tea. then did the commentary, the mug being a useful prop to say were all mates here rather than some glossy over produced promo by Kawasaki

The main difference between America and England.

In America we expect our tea cold our beer colder and our women
hottttt.


In England they will settle for hot tea warm beer and a woman with at least
one tooth in her mouth.

Ouch...I'll take the beer, tea, and women any way they come, no gripes here.

First warm beer I ever had was in Qatar, over 100 degrees, New Castle, sitting outside, it was good! Scratch that, HOT beer.

I lived in the UK for 3 years when I was a young man. There is a LOT to be said for a cup of hot tea on a cool day! There are also some big differences in standards. Here in America we put up with sh*tty beer, women and tea for 1 reason and 1 reason only. We simply DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER! However, the tea situation is fixable. You just have to learn how to brew (steep) the right kind, the right way. As for the other 2 things, we're sh*t outta luck!

Not sure where in England you lived, but I lived there for awhile as well. And I have to disagree with you. It's all about personal preference (have I said that before??). And I've met both good & bad women from both sides of the pond. I prefer iced tea on a hot day & like hot tea when I'm sick (with a little extra something in there of course). Now as for beer, it all tastes like sh*t, but warm beer? They can keep it, thank you.

For this American, I like it our way. No offense intended for any of our international members. Just my preference....
