  5. I found the operation and performance of the bikes interesting.

    Really low compression ratio and large flywheel means you can take your hand off the throttle of a single and it wont slow.

    Drum brakes can lock up a rear wheel pretty well. Although I can imagine the tyres weren't exactly sticky.

    No mirrors and indicators means an entirely different way of riding.

  9. I liked the voiceover guy.

    "He's a splendid chap. At one of the recent film dos, he and his gentleman friend came in tuxedos. It was a most amusing spectacle, but a bother to get the stains out, I'd say!"
