This is a follow-up series. The original series of programs was called "The Hairy Bikers": two personable guys with beards, who like bikes and good food, and are competent cooks.
Interesting, because Two Fat Ladies also had a bikie theme. Although they used a Triumph outfit in the programs, Jennifer Paterson, the "team lead" owned and used a Honda Cub to get around London where she lived and worked as an itinerant cook (for private dinner parties) and cookery writer.
I make an appearance in one of the programs. I'm on screen, on a Sunbeam S7, for about 0.2 seconds...... If everyone is to be famous for 15 minutes, I'm still owed 14 minutes 59.8 seconds of fame.
Interesting that the "Two Fat Laddies" comment on the Rapide wasn't confined only to the irrelevant (to most riders) nominal top speed of the device, but that it was RELIABLE. So evidently they're both old enough to remember when bikes weren't.
Must be an age thing, thinking reliability is more important than top speed.....
I remember reading somewhere that one of the Hairy Bikers had a relation (uncle from memory) that had a Black Shadow and it was promised to be left to him in the will. When the old chap died there was no sign of the bike and no-one ever knew what happened to it. You'd have thought he would have known the reg. number and trackled it down - I know I would have....
I downloaded the program but you can't grab bits of it to put into a format to post it on the forum.You can put it on a DVD,BUT the BBC have it copyright protected so that it can only be played on a computer registered in the UK,AND it is TIME restricted for 7 days from date of download as well.JohnPresumably as it's possible to grab stills from the video
