Lovely film about our friend George Pickering, made by our friends at Black Dots Video, commissioned by our friends at the DTRA, and featuring bikes from our supporters at Indian Motorcycle. Totally feelgood in a time when UK tracks are under threat.

We have featured George a couple of times. Once, focussing on his track and his mood during a race weekend, in Sideburn 38, and also his killer KTM 250 two-stroke framer, our cover bike of Sideburn 42. George was also the model for the 100-year-old photo.

German photography team Marc Hanchak and Christine Gabler shot a pair fo twin-shock short trackers, built by Hombrese Bikes, for Sideburn 45. Marc also sent these scans of medium format, colour negative film. I'm sure there's an app to put these borders on photos, but these are the real thing. Well, a digital scan of the real thing.

Read about these Hombrese Honda XL500 and Yamaha SR500 racers in Sideburn 45.
