The first half of this fantastic old footage shows some of the first motorcycle hill climbing ever attempted, with somewhat mixed results.

The second half is a warning of sorts to speeding motorists and shows a motorcycle policeman leaping from his bike and boarding a car in order to bring the driver to justice. I can’t tell you how much I wish policemen were still using this method of apprehending suspects, it may take some doing to get it past the health and safety board though.
