Not a great fan of H Cole ... a bit of style over substance I think. But that applies to most car/bike TV programmes. Don't start me on (infantile) Top Gear. They seem to think all bikes are used for is sport, leisure, and "creative" or rebellious expression.
We forget that 2 wheelers are (still) primarily a cheap, convenient, speedy and flexible form of transport all over the world. The most important motor vehicle on the planet I think is still the Honda 50 and its derivatives. These are only my views of course ... and I realise how boring a programme might seem just extolling the virtues of 125cc scooters versus 90cc step-thru or whatever. However, I still enjoy mooching around the "utility" stuff at shows rather than the sports/custom stuff.
By the way ... Mods and Rockers battles were really focussed on that Easter/Bank Holiday 1964. I was hitch-hiking/youth hostelling around UK that year as a 15 year old, and I remember it was much in the news but we realised it was mostly driven by the press themselves.
Currently I guess we do need another ambassador for the sport in the way that Sheene was. Fogarty could have been that but didn't want to I guess, and its unlikely we get another MotoGP champ while factories focus on Spain Italy where their major sales are. Cruchlow will always suffer because of this suppose
Sorry for rambling on ... it's part of getting old
p.s just to cheer you up I attached a nice rocker bike ...
