01 topshot x a look at the life documentary

Here’s short documentary about motorcycling in the UK during the 1960s. It covers all aspects of motorcycling during that era from manufacturing, to clubs, rallies, the 59 Club, doing the ton and the volunteer emergency service by motorcycle.

    Racing between hospitals to deliver blood transfusions? How’d that ever get outshined by racing between cafes?

    Never wanted to ride my bike less then after watching this. Hey lets all head over to the church and maybe we can comb the fringe on our bike seats in the park with that old man. Oh that will be swell. What was I expecting from a bunch of guys who used to fight with scooter riders.

    Motorcycling a family affair? yes my father had one of thoise Watsonian sidecars on his BSA. We went everywhere in it. The Blood Runners still operate, they provide a essential service.
    Ahh the simple pleasures of a ping pong table tennis as well.

      Always a family affair! My Dad got a bike (once again) when I got mine. Also a mate got his bike, turns out his folks always wanted bikes as well, so now they’re getting into it.

      A family that rides together is a fun family!

    Can you imagine – trusting blood shipment to private volunteers on motorbikes?
