Honda CB1100 Promotional Video

  1. This is one of my favourite motorcycling videos. It captures the simple pleasures and freedoms of motorcycling. I rather like the soundtrack too (download link here).

    Does anyone know the city the motorcyclist is riding through from 1:20 to 2:08? Somewhere in New Zealand perhaps?

  2. Wanaka, Sth Island?? The airport in the clip is in Wanaka, so I assumed the city was the same.

    It is a good clip.
  3. i used to watch this video on a near daily basis for almost a whole year when it first came out, it was as close as i could get to motorcycling while i was saving for my first bike. I just wish he was going a little harder in the corners.
  4. Thanks Meags, but I had a look in Google Street-View and cannot seem to find the same city streets and corners. I'm thinking perhaps in one of the larger cities.
  5. I know where you're coming from, but it's not always about going as hard and fast as possible. There comes a time when a relaxing change of pace is exactly what's needed, more pleasurable. This, of course, is the beauty of motorcycling. As we change, it continues to deliver on a different level.

    Nice find, Captain_Slow (y)
  6. Thanks!
  7. What a good looking bike!
  8. That looks like a nice place to ride...
