Video: Jay Leno rides Brough Superior

Jay Leno’s recently updated his YouTube channel with another episode of his gearhead show. Usually he focuses on cars, but he occasionally slips motorcycles in. In this case, it’s a 1925 Brough Superior SS that was raced at the Isle of Man.

You can watch Leno’s rundown on the machine (he knows quite a bit about the machine’s inner workings), and then take it out on the road. It’s a good thing the enviro-Nazis weren’t around during filming, as they likely wouldn’t be impressed by the total-loss lubrication system. Despite its antiquated oiling system, this is an impressive machine indeed, a bike that was competitive for decades after being built. It’s too bad you’ve got to have a Leno-sized pocketbook to afford one.
