Two For Two Wheel Tuesday!

First up is a video to remind you that all those videos you shoot with your camrea phone, Flip camera or actual video camera aren't good!  No seriously, this video of a 70's Yamaha done up in Cafe Racer style shows how well done video of motorcycles can be high art.

Take some time to really look at how everything is shot, the music, the angles, etc, this person who put this together has some real skills!

 

The second video is also very beautiful, just in a different way.  Michelin put together this production from last weekends 24 Hours of Le Mans motorcycle race.  What I really impressed with is not just the the film, but that Michelin shows and highlights the winners who were not on Michelin rubber!  Little things like that are to be noted and praised in an era where every bit of PR has to be spun to show you in the best light.  Enjoy this one as well!

Two Wheel Tuesday The Triumph Thruxton

Over the last five years or so the retro cafe movement has really picked up momentum.  Both Ducati and Triumph have brought out lines of bikes to echo that golden era of motorcycling from the mid 60's to the very early 70's.  It has gone so far that people are dragging old Honda CB550 and 750's, Kawasaki H1 and H2 etc out of the basement, fixed them up and added touches so that that they wouldn't look out of place down at The Ace Cafe getting ready to do a ton up run.

Triumph had their demo fleet in town over the weekend and we got a chance to take a ride on the Thruxton.  This is a bike that we have liked for a while from a looks standpoint but have been reserving judgement on till we could take it for a spin.  

We liked it, and we think you will too, have a look!
