Videos: The Tiger Walks (Horrible music ) and Riding the Tiger (You can hear the rotax putt-putt)
It’s a trailer, for a movie, about riding Royal Enfields in India. 2 Roues Sinon Rien. (two wheels or nothing) Yeah, it’s in French. Maybe they’ll subtitle the flic? Do not miss the dancing camel.
The title says it all “Vincent Lust.” Desktop worthy B&W photos of a nice example.

Clever return to a classic image. Coke. Love the soda cup design.
