Hawk talk

Yesterday Viv was Youtube-ing when he suddenly yelled out, "Remember this???" Holy cow, that sounded amazingly familiar. Sounds that I had last heard almost two decades ago.

Ladies and gentlemen... rather bewdis and bewdas, presenting the video of the week at the bar - the definition of "cool" back when I was a kid.

Were you there?

"This is Jesse Mach, an ex-motorcycle cop, injured in the line of duty. Now a police troubleshooter, he's been recruited for a top secret government mission to ride Street Hawk, an all-terrain attack motorcycle, designed to fight urban crime, capable of incredible speeds up to 300 miles an hour and immense fire power. Only one man, federal agent Normal Tuttle knows Jesse Mach's true identity."

The Man... The Machine... Street Hawk.

Oh my goodness!!! that brought back memories. My dad and I have been looking for this stuff since a long time. We are huge fans!

Do you also remember Knight Rider of David Hasselhoff? Both were quite similar and a lot of fun to watch. Thanks a lot for this one!

I think I was too young when Street Hawk aired on TV. I have no clue whatsoever about Street Hawk :p

Nostalgic. Really nostalgic. I used to wait for this episode and in general used to end up in a fight with mom :D

Sayesha, you just made my day!

Street Hawk is one of the biggest reasons from my childhood why I wanted to become an engineer/scientist. The other one, Knight Rider. Thank you so much for digging this one up! :)

i was more of the Wonder Years, BAywatch, teenage mutant ninja turtles, LA Law, Santa Barbara variety :)
nostalgic to get pages pulled outta the past, it's like innocence revisited :)

Inder said...

i have watched few episodes of street hawk or knight rider. i am not sure what... anyways, the motor cycles were liek the bat-mobile.

Sandip Chaudhuri said...

oh man Street Hawk. The series was aired in Bangladesh before it came to India.
I remember going to Calcutta. Twisting the antenna this way and that to get a clear signal :D.
It was a way too cool series.
And when they showed it in India I taped nearly the whole of it.
Unfortunately I don't have the complete series some got lost while we were shifting :((

I used to love Street Hawk!You know George Clooney acted in one of the episodes?He was soooo young and rather cute!

ajit said...

Those were great memories relived. Street Hawk, Knightrider and The Flash used to be among my favourites.

Vivek said...

Then, there was also "Jungle Book" in hindi and "Oshin".

Not a lot of people remember them, but they were my favorites that time.
