Hi, yes, it would have. Not my camera and I didn't know who was behind it. I was trying to make sure mine kicked through OK... somehow I was first up the Hill. The HRD behind was really interesting: 1932 I think the owner said. But sadly the owner and his son couldn't get it started. DL

I missed the HRD JAP first time. It's at 1:47. Lots of images of footing, and riding clutches. I was amused to see brake lights coming on near the top of the Test Hill. When this was a race venue, faster riders leaped great distances at the top.

That guy in the long flowing coat is a little crazy. Just think if a flap got caught in something like the rear wheel.
