While sipping my quarantini last night, I wondered if anyone out there had some positive YouTube sources that distract you from TP inventories and foraging missions. Michael Waller’s weekly britbike installments are my faves, as are Hoo’s Mini World, This Old Tony and of course the daring Noraly. Once in a while, Paul Henshaw shares a ride on an old British bike, and AvE does intelligent projects laced with creative vulgarity.
Perhaps you have some gems to share?

Yes, Michael Waller's installments are always fun and informative.  I wish I had his skill.  One other I really like is "Shedbilt Dave" who restores many different types of Brit bikes. He could use a cleaning lady to tidy up the "shed", but overall his knowledge of how machine, restore, create parts for vintage bikes is very impressive.  He has a great series on RE, builds from the frame up.

Good call Boxerman, was about to mention Bad Obsession Motorsport. Binge watch over 5 years of work in a day.

Also watch The Workshop. I'm not bothered by the language personally, some might though.

I always find something to get hooked into just by luck.

Couldn't have thought of a more timely topic, and I'll be checking out those unfamiliar channels.

As for Mustie1's Channel, I heartily concur that it is indeed a must. It's truly just like hanging out with your best buddy in his shop as he tackles a wild array of fixes and straightup resurrections. What really distinguishes his offerings is his almost interactive manner with the viewer...asking advice, really acknowledging and making one feel "there". You may not have an active interest in some snowblower or irrigation pump engine, but you'll get almost trancelike cheering him on just the same, hour after hour. His triumphs will feel like yours. Besides, it's just about the finest series of practical engine diagnostic seminars you can find anywhere. That he doesn't have his own show on the Discovery Channel or somewhere on basic cable by now is sort of a mystery, but probably a good thing for us. More cooks would likely only spoil that already perfect broth.

So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

(Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends and I'm a contender for 'Village Idiot')

       I'll bet he would have nothing to do with the control they have over you once they get a contract signed. Plus these horrible cable TV media people make you say things you would not normally say. That's what ruined the car and bike programs (and MANY others) that used to be on before "reality TV" took over. PBS too, is now unwatchable (Travels With Darley?? My god).

        They all became "Oh my god! we have to get the rust off this bolt or we'll never get it done in time and we were behind schedule before we even started! O my O my O my".
And the phony star who wandered around contributing nothing but stupid jokes.

He was offered a 'trial' on TV but as tooseevee said, he didn't like the conditions of the contract.
Hand Tool Rescue [That's another one] was also offered one but refused for the same reasons.

No idea why this popped up in suggested. I ended up watching it though lol. On a loop. It'll bring the child out in all of us in these crazy times.

Not Youtube but a selection of old BP films, including old motorcycle stuff.

Listen out for some old-school British commentators' accents, dear cousins!

On a positive note, always inspiring channel Engineering Explained, bit of sanity in a world gone mad.
