Product review: Flick the Beast VHS

1 of 1

Flick the Beast, Kevin Schwantz VHS, £10.99 from online retailers
Time owned:
20 years

What’s good: I used to watch this video religiously between the ages of three and five. This video, coupled with my dad being a biker got me interested in biking in the first place.

The rather dry, unenthusiastic commentary and the cheesy 1980s rock music only add to the charm.

There’s plenty of powersliding and highsides in the video, something which is almost forgotten with the vast wealth of electronics used on today’s MotoGP bikes.

What’s not: No amount of googling has unearthed any mention of a DVD version, meaning I’ll have to keep my TV/video combo if I want to keep watching it.

Rating: 5/5
