Over the weekend, I happened to be laying on the couch watching old Bond movies when I should have been cleaning the swimming pool. I came across ‘For Your Eyes Only’, and found just about the best motorcycle chase scene I’ve ever seen! Bond (Roger Moore), on skis, is trying to escape from assassins at a European ski area. This includes being chased down a bobsled run by dual bad guys on Yamaha XT dual sports with studded snow tires. There is also another ski based bad guy with a rifle. Make sure you see the end, where he’s pissed off and picks up and throws the wrecked motorcycle (along with his rifle) at the escaping Bond. Pretty rad huh!? Got any other cool motorcycle chase scenes I might’ve missed?
Now this was pretty damn interesting. An ex motorcycle thief tells all his secrets on the Motorcycle section of Reddit. Worth a read for any rider to help protect your bike.
I don’t have anything else to say except check this fucker out! Oh, and how the hell do you sit on this thing with the expansion chambers coming out through the top of the frame!?
MM listener Roberto sent us an email with this really interesting PDF file “How to build a Cafe Racer” guide. I’ve looked through it and it’s pretty interesting. I figured I’d post it up here. Take a look through it and let us know what you think? Good ideas? Ridiculous? Let’s talk.
