The bikes are very nice for sure but what's most impressive, the film location. Bill will surely recognize it! thumbsup

I am very partial to Red and that 1200 looks sweet!

Edited the 850 out earlier, what the heck, here it is. I like the gold wheels (yeah I know the AT had em first but my CX500 Turbo had em 35 years ago too : )

The 1200 has shaft drive. When did that happen? Last time I looked at Tiger(1050) it was chain drive, correct?


If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious stuff...

The 1200 has always had shaft.

The last scene in the ad is of the famous (in my mind anyway) Black Bear Pass in Colorado. If you're curious as to the extent of the adrenaline rush one would receive riding it, take a look at this vid at the 11:00 mark. eek

PS...Bill it may be time to do it again! wink Well, next summer anyhow. grin
