Welcome to 1996. A water-cooled Porsche 911 was still two years away. The Red Hot Chilli Peppers were cutting edge. It was impossible to ride a GSX-R or without your neon-coloured paddock jacket. Oh, and the number 1 hit in Germany that year was “Zehn Kleine Jägermeister” by Die Toten Hosen

The following clips are all shot within a few days of each other, all from the vantage point of Adenauer Forst. Just like the classic Rhapsodie In Blech, it’s a highlights reel of beginners running way too hot into the decreasing radius corner.

There are so many classic machines to see here, but the guy getting his wife to take a photo of him is my favourite “did that really just happen?” moment!
