5Four expensive special from 4 months ago from a niche Honda.
CB1000R sold in minuscule numbers: 54.
(G.W. call sign while he worked as a despatch rider)

Now for something completely unrelated to North America.

After barreling across the Clifton Bridge
winding her way thru the streets of Bristol
you might have noticed that just before the 54 CB1000R passes the OMG club
at 0:51 there on the wall, left: Well Hung Lover, a Banksy mural.

About revealing
This, in the video, would be related to North America?

Puzzled
I'm puzzled, too.

About revealing the single-sided swing-arm with the shortest slip-on exhaust, there is one out there that does the job nicely :
GP-S1

Incidentally, when I was filling up the tank the other day, a British bloke came by and asked:"say, mate, how big is the engine?"

You got two British guys, bike nobility talkin'.
No one wondered who was aiming the Gopro.

Seems par,
Isambard Brunel's Clifton chain bridge,
Banksy, the OMG Club, or Lloyds Amphitheatre
ring no bell for the proverbial parochial stay-at-home viewer.

I must fit the 'stay at home viewer' profile perfectly...recognised none of those places, unlike the Count of Romania.

A bridge, especially a well known one for any brit
-I figgered out, here, that not all north americans can identify the Mackinac bridge-
can be easily recognized in the first images.

The Lloyds Amphitheatre, the building on the right, has some reputation for events, some festive.
On the left the tall ship, the barque Kostalot is moored on the Princes Wharf.

Easily confused ... it's Transylvania, and the Count, a fine aristocrat, wouldn't ride no common conveyance
a Honda!

So I'm Igor.

BTW nothing of this is even remotely about North America.

Apparently Guy Willison has spoken many times when it was never captured on video.
Really odd that nowhere in the video does anyone give repeated warnings to every North American that purchased a NSC that the "CB1000R is the heaviest of the litre roadsters"

True
But
you'll find a Count in a County
and a flag for a countRy.

This Verticalscope forum takes the country flag, any country flag.
So borrowed this vertical stripe RO flag instead of Proud flag of Glorious Great country Western-Macronistan.

First hint: who mans the Gopro?
Water Sky Building Plant Street light


Second hint: hidden behind the tree in the first views,
seen when the operator is panning from GW to SP.

Seems like we don't have that many people with primary school education
in history of North America around here.

No bristolian either, claro.

Did some learning myself,
in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a place where
The Lowells used to talk only to Cabots, and the Cabots talk only to God.

Amazing that the two 5Four Honda fiends, in the video, where debating
in front of the Arnolfini center.
On the quay where the statue of some,
blithely unknown here,
Italian of longtime ago sits on a rock.

The camera went back-and-forth from Guy Willison to Steve Plater
showing, behind both men's discussion, and a tree that remained silent,
a very peculiar yellow vessel moored on the Princes Wharf.

A Caravel.

For braying out loud, North American forum denizens
don't want to know nothing but North American Honda bikes.

I know, I read it here.

But, the OP and the two British blokes talking Honda
looking at an old time navigator
with a replica of caravel behind,
fun.

Being that I'm not a runner, Massachusetts has not been frequented much. Beyond MIT and Harvard, I'm not too familiar with the higher learning woke institutions of that state, as there are multitudes. As for beyond the pond landmarks, I'm just an Okie from Muskogee...what would I know?

All about bread twist ties?

Regarding navigators, North American past history :unsure: places of LEARNING,
or Kirchhoff鈥檚 rules
I'll keep an open mind.
