I much prefer these real women on real motorcycles than cheesecake pretending that they're on motorcycles!
Love the full-length coats they wore, with knee boots. Wouldn't mind doing that myself, except that there's so much better equipment these days! I loved my Aerostich Darien gear that Fay and I rode cross-country with, but I "sized out" of it and sold it, and now I'm looking for something else. I'd get one of these long coat outfits but you'd stay wet at modern speeds in the rain. I hear that Belstaff or "Barbour" "Trialsmaster" jackets are good, but some reviews say that you still get wet if there's a lot of water coming down, and I don't want that.
Love those two Scott "Flying Squirrels" in the ACU competition photo! That "Tinkler" bike is a monster - can't believe that was sold as a "cross-country" or "rough roads" bike. Lighter is better for that, we've learned over the years - maybe that's why I never heard of one before - they're all still bogged down and sunk in a mudhole somewhere!
Looking at these pictures as a guy looking at girls rather than a motorcyclist looking at other motorcyclists (just for a minute), I realize that hair, hats, and makeup made a LOT of difference in the way gals "presented" back then. Whatever they were doing to themselves back then didn't help, at least not to our eyes 100 years on. If you cover up the hats and imagine through whatever makeup they were wearing, there's a lot of nice eyes and smiles there. And fantastic attitudes, I'll wager.
Final thing, sort of a general question not related to motorcycles.... Is it just a modern "Geek" thing to have computer-generated voices narrating videos, even if it detracts from the presentation, and is harder to do than just speaking into a mike? To me, it's the dumbest sounding thing in the world to have an obvious mechanical voice narrating something than to have a person doing it. These things are a LOOONG way from passing the Turing test ...
That aside, though, good stuff!
