Hobbs & Shaw

There was some excitement in Glasgow this week because a Hollywood movie was being filmed in the city centre. There were many car chases because the film, Hobbs & Shaw, is a spin-off from the Fast & the Furious series.

I caught some bike action this afternoon during my regular visit to town for Friday lunch.

Stuntman on a Triumph Speed Triple (I think) connected to the film wagon


I think I'm in the shot.

This was quite a contraption. A heavily modified bike with a movie camera cantilevered out front.

It seems like Glasgow is standing in for London going by this bus (parking in my usual bike space!)

Blown up bus.


  1. Was that 2 different bikes?

    1. The first bike (attached to the truck) was a standard-looking Triumph Speed Triple.

      I don't know about the camera bike - maybe electric? I can't see any exhaust pipes. It must have been weird to ride with so much equipment attached.

  2. It’s a major. Don’t even need to hear from TW on this one. The only adjustment you’ll have to make is that after a decade-plus as a 14-time major winner, Woods is now entering the PGA as a 15-time major champ. Plenty of people will ride Woods as the favorite at Bethpage, too, even after a month away from competition. us open live channels


  3. Fortunately for Els, he'll get another crack this year, as the USGA announced on Thursday that they'd award Els with another special exemption for the 119th U.S. Open at Pebble Beach this June. It will mark Els' 27th consecutive appearance in the event, which has included his two victories, eight top 10s and five finishes inside the top five, the most recent coming in 2013 at Merion
