I came across this Public Information Film on a forum. If you remember the 1960s, you'll love it. Plenty of nice vehicles from the period, and some excellent vintage riding gear. It is interesting to note how quiet the roads were in those days - and also reflect how impossible it would be today to reach 'the kids' with that announcer's cut-glass RP accent. Today, it would have to be a trendy Mockney or an Andy Kershaw-style Northern burr to have any credibility. It's a pity that Matchless didn't continue with the development of the 'mind control' throttle, however. A bike that can accelerate without the use of the rider's right hand would revolutionise modern racing.
So ... are you 'Tom', or 'Tom's Friend'? Me, I'm a bit of both. I am glad to say that rider training has come on a bit in the last 50 years, though.
Note: Tom's friend's bike is from 1963; Tom's is slightly older. Both are London registrations. I think that Tom's is a Matchless G2 and his friend's is a Triumph Tiger Cub, but I stand to be corrected on that.
