    Thanks for the correction Darryl- I've never lived in CA so I was going on what I'd heard from others which was not correct. Somebody smack me...!

    The LAPD also had a bunch of AMC Matadors for cruisers, when I started driving. You might (probably not) recall the AMC commercials -- they were sinking and trying to get people to recognize their cars -- with the tag line "so that's a Matador!"

    Well, I had just gotten my license and I was driving my mom's Olds Delta 88 land barge down Van Nuys Blvd. with a couple friends. We pulled up to a light, right next to an LAPD unit, and my friend leans out the window and yells at the cop "So that's a Matador!" I nearly died, but the cop just laughed.

    I caught "Danny Deckchair" on DVD just yesterday, and an old airhead
    is featured prominently in the latter half of the movie.
    It is a sweet little movie!

    And it is featured for the right reasons- the heroine has the old thing in her
    barn and recalls wistfully that her parents toured on it. It is then made to
    run and put to good use.

    Actually, I could use some help on this- I don't know. The handlebars and mirrors didn't look BMW to me, and only after a full shot of the bike was I even sure it was a Beemer-

    ANYONE?????

    Fun movie

    Has no one revisited the Indiana Jones movie with Sean Connery where they escape from a castle in a side-hack? This one is a pebble in my shoe

    KZ1000 with Hanigan fairing for his police bike.

    His "civilian bike" where he rides in with his leg in a cast was a Kawasaki H2 triple.
