I’m not a modern sport bike guy. Once in a while, I get a wild hair to buy the ugliest ’80s superbike I can find, but mostly, I’m a UJM man all the way. Meanwhile, there’s Vimeo — where aspiring and professional filmmakers are sharing their art with the world. This particular video was made by the people at Nikon (w00t!) to promote their new digital camera. It tells a simple, small, enigmatic story about a guy and his sport bike. On the surface, it’s simple motorcycle porn — part speed homage, part love letter to Chicago in the wee hours. But watch carefully and there are layers, subtext, arc and story. I can’t stop watching it.
