Any other oldies remember this gem?

Post by Slowlycatchymonkey » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:32 am

I used to be glued to this programme when it was on. I hear they’re modelling the new Mod 1 test on it :lol:

2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Children’s TV is tedious (although I’d give Horrible Histories a pass) and compared to the moralising children’s programmes in patronising tones that were thrown at you back then it was great.... well better than it’s a knockout at any rate :lol:
