BMW R65LS Shown In A Movie
« on: February 25, 2022, 08:48:49 AM »
I was on YouTube this morning and a video popped up, it's a 5 minute video form a movie called The Day After, about nuclear attack in the midwestern US .
I remembered that an LS was shown in the early part of the movie .
At about 2:40 you can see the bike for a few seconds .
Looks like the video didn't load .

Not a bad movie for its time.

I had forgotten the cameo by the LS.

Yeah, I've got that movie.  The Red LS appears at 7:34, 8:49, 24:29, 28:12, 33:33, 41:45, 48:50, 55:37...  This prompted me to re-watch, it is a very sobering movie especially with what is going on in the world right now.
