On the Box

A few motorcycle-related TV programs I've watched lately.


The guys set out to discover whether a motorcycle can be ridden over water. The answer is yes - for a bit anyway. The finale was Jamie riding a bike into a lake at 80mph and skimming over the surface in a surprisingly controlled manner for 100yards before losing speed and sinking.  


Guy Martin's Speed

Motorcycle racer Martin takes on a number of speed related challenges. This week he also tries to ride on water. Last week he attempted to break the British paced cycle record.

James May's Toy Stories

Top Gear presenter May attempts to ride a bike made from meccano round the 37 mile Isle of Man TT circuit. A very slow circuit but the programme has plenty of footage of the island.
