I would definitely call a Norton Commando a superbike, and a Kawasaki H2 750, being the fastest production bike in the world in 1972. The Honda 750 would qualify, and, of course, the mighty 900cc...

I'm glad someone else noticed the tires. That told me all I needed to know about BMW and the host of the show. If rubber compound was enough to get through sand, the top off road racers would not use...
