    Talking Two Wheeled Wisdom - Motorcycle Safety Film (1960's)

    Hello,

    Another little gem I came across and wanted to share with everyone! This was produced in the 1960's by the AMA and the AMSA. Classic bikes and cars abound in this rudimentary safety video. A few contradictions coupled with some sweet memories of what bikes use to be make this worth watching.

    Enjoy!

    Ha Ha I like that "who cares about the passenger" message. I also had to laugh at the propaganda about
    "dressing neatly". The spiel on braking distance was kinda cool though. Modern bikes have decreased the stopping
    distance but not the reaction time. An American Motorcycle Asscioation production couldn't be bothered to
    show an American motorcycle except in the hands of police?

    Hard to find anyone but a policeman dressed neatly riding an American bike back then.

    I still remember taking a safety course where the importance of sliding and low siding were deamed viable options in handling a potential crash.

    Couldnt really tell, poor quality and they were going fast. But every time they showed the racers on a flat track.......what were they? I know sportys were doing pretty good back then.

    I think I saw an old Harley Sprint in there somewhere.

    You are right Tommy, there was a Sprint shown in several scenes (however I believe that the Harley-Davidson Sprints were Italian made bikes).

    That's right. There was also the Rapido? I was able to try both of them. I think the Sprint was a 250cc if I remember and the Rapido was a 125? It was a long long time ago.
