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!

Imola 200 Revival

Perhaps you've heard the stories about the legenday Imola 200.  It was a non-championship race for a few years that drew the elite of motorcycle road racing and saw a wide variety of of machinery from Grand Prix two strokes to big bore Superbikes of the day.

The Paul Smart replica Ducati, takes it's cues from the bike in this race.  It was the first taste the Europeans would have of the man we call King Kenny, and the Spanish called "The Alien"

This past fall, many of the racers and their bikes were brought back to the track to have some fun, and let everyone remember what it was like "back in the day".

Enjoy the video.
