Paris-Roubaix Support Vehicle of Choice?
I was just watching the Paris-Roubaix bicycle race and noticed at least two Vees in the motorcycle camera group. One of the Mavic spare wheel bikes could've been too, but it had so much junk hanging off it and was painted solid yellow, so it was kind of hard to tell. For those that aren't familiar, Paris-Roubaix is one of the big bicycle races in Europe run across lots of cobblestone paths. A V-Strom would be perfect for soaking up those cobblestones, keeping the TV shots nice and steady. Someone finally got smart and got the cameras on the best bike for the job.
