|A few stills from the Riding September video|
The Blitz Motorcycles team also has a knack for making very good videos of their machines in action. The BMW R60/2 promo video features a winter ride and music from Vivaldi’s Nisi Dominus. This is an unusual choice for a motorcycle video, but one that works rather well.
They are also responsible for what is, in my opinion, one of the best pieces of motorcycle videography in existence. The video is called “Riding September”. It features the Blitz Motorcycles crew riding a couple of SR500 flat trackers and a BMW R80/7 through some great scenery, goofing off, cooking dinner, and generally hanging out and having fun. They’ve done a great job of capturing the camaraderie of riding buddies, and it’s great to see a shop crew out using their bikes as they were intended to be used, and custom bikes that are most definitely built to be ridden hard. The soundtrack is “Frankie’s Gun” by the Felice Brothers. Watch it-you’ll be glad you did.
