Blue K100RS in the opening sequence. Cool choice.



BTW, you won't find me buying fake motorcycle gear. My health is too important to me to take that chance.

Also on TV this week, did anyone notice in the coverage of the Tour de France that a camera crew was using what looked like a K75 or K100 naked version but with large windscreen? It stood out from the RT and big Jap tourers following the peloton.

There used to be a lot of Ks on the tour but they have been slowly falling in numbers lately. Apparently the camera crews liked them a lot.

Yep, that would be the one with the red and white tank/radiator shroud.

As Rick says their numbers have been falling off and compared to last year I think I only saw two this year. The big GS models appear to have taken over as well as Kawasakisas they are asponsor this year.

Travelling over the same area in June I was able to recognise certain features on TV. Alp d'Heuz being one but the crowds at times make it very difficult to locate certain points.

After staying up to watch stage 20 live, I was seriously pissed off when I realised that the route had been changed. Instead of going over Col du Galibier and Col du Lautaret andwest along D1091 into Bourg d'Oisans, they retraced some ofthe route of stage 18. But then again it is understandable as there is a collapsed roadtunnel on the D1091 which has closed the road since April. The alternativefor me wasa massive diversion through Briancon and Gap.
