Why We Ride - A good bike fix during lockdown
« on: April 02, 2020, 09:55:31 AM »
Hi all

Its a great fix for us bike nuts whilst we are in lockdown.

Good idea. We should share other online films and videos that help us to get a wee biking fix at this time.

'Speed is my need' on Netflix is worth a watch. It's not fantastic, but worth the time.

But you can't deny he loves his bikes and is a proper biker...  and therefore IMO he's a good bloke.

I thought it was hilarious. Loving the bit when he said how reliable German bikes are and then struggled to get it started  :745:

Another good watch is Henry Coles World's greatest motorcycle rides, especially as the new series has just started and the first 2 shows are in New Zealand.

I'm sure many of us have dreamt about touring NZ, and the programme does not disappoint - it looks amazing, especially southern New Zealand.

Anybody on this forum ever toured there?  :084:

Lived there for 14 years in two stints, but never rode there.  Had a stonking 200bhp Caterham 7 though......
