    Wheelies on frozen lake- BMW S1000R. Not bad!

    Didn't know the Finns had any sense of humour. Clearly their version of test riding a bike differs to us down under.

    Bike looks mean as with spikes. What's with these constant flashing brakes lights on some euro vids?

    It's a visibility thing. Have em in the States too, headlights/parklights as well, illegal here.

    Shit that trench at the start was a good effort! Cheers for the share.

    That's because LED lights flickers at define frequenc to set their brightness; normal human eyes cannot distinguish this flicker but cameras can.

    Think of it like scan rate on old TVs.

    Turns out I'm retarded. Don't have a flash enough camera to have come across this.

    The pulsing is a thing to though. Honest!
