Norton Commando 850 Episode: Extras
Writing looks like Commando 850 LT - does that make sense?? with LT beeing the hook of big C in Commando https://www.flickr.com/photos/30311970@N07/7476346328/ Nice link. So it's the Greater Manchester Police Museum. No doubt a wonderful museum to visit, but do they put useful information online about their cars and bikes? No.

BMW K1100LT Episode: Extras
Again the presenter calls it a BMW - but the commentary gets confused at this point as he refers to a non-existent Honda small script above headlight seems to read K100 maybe he refers to it as first BMW with 4 cyl in line like Honda ?
Script is K1100 - Link to "renaissance-hotels.marriott.com"
