Top Gear Versys

Just thought it was interesting that in the last episode of Top Gear (Season 18 Episode 1), there was a blue 2009 Versys parked by a curb about 35 minutes into the episode when Jeremy was driving his Lambo through Rome. Guess that blue on my bike is easy to spot!

I spotted that as well... I use a UK proxy to watch BBC Programming on-line. I just saw the bright blue... It was a pretty quick shot... Yes?

Sorry, I missed it - but then with the Lambo Aventador in orange being THE most stunning looking car in the world right now, who can blame me....!?

A proxy server is an intermediate server and is often used to hide a client computers identity from the destination server. For instance some sites may restrict their content to viewers within a specific geographic location or country due to copy-rite issues. An in country proxy server allows by passing this restriction.

To the OP, just wondering what UK proxy server you are using?

Yup....when I went to BBC.UK, access was restricted to ...the UK.
BBC america only was up to last season broadcasts.
Very frustrating as IMHO it is the best car show in the world (I've ben reading the magazine for a good 15 years.)

So..yes yes, please explain how to do the thing you did to be able to watch the new season on the web. ( I'm fairly computer illiterate).
Be well.
Ride safe.
Peace.

Yeah, it was a a very quick shot, but you can't miss that neon-see-it-from-space-candy-blue. I get the episodes from a buddy who watches them live in HD. I wish they had the current episodes on iTunes or something in 720/1080. I would gladly pay for them, just not a year after. That Lambo is nice... In all honesty, though, I think I would rather have a BMW s1000RR for speed and looks, and then a completely teched out Land Rover for my daily driver, if I had that kind of money. Exotic cars just seem obnoxious to deal with more than every now and then. Very pretty though.

I have an account at proxz.com for a UK proxy. It costs me $25 every three months which is less than a movie ticket each month.

When I go to whatismyip.com before I log into the proxy my I.P. shows me near Tallahassee and I cannot watch any video in the BBC website. But when I log onto my proxy server and check whatismyip.com my I.P. is different number and shows me outside London... And I'm able to stream any/all video on the BBC website.
