watched MTV some days ago. There was a show on about some guys who`s job it is to organize cars/bikes whatever for marketing events or people looking for special vehicles.
Show plays in California. In the last show they were looking for a girl who could ride a GP bike to make a police commercial.
However, there were at some racetrack and as the camera was showing what was going on there, there were 2 guys pushing a Paso from a pick up. Wonder if it was anyone from here.
No idea how old that show was, though.

Also there was one movie with Scott Glenn. In a scene he walked through a garage and the was a Paso standing there.
And at last "home improvement", the TV series with Tim Allen. In one show they filmed in the room of one of the sons and above the bed there was a big poster of a Paso. Saw it only for some secs, but I`m sure it was one. :thumbup:

That's cool. I don't recall any TV appearances but I did see one in a magazine ad for something else. Seems the ad was for Drakar or Soloflex. I think they were both in the shot and on the floor was a magazine opened to a page with the Paso on it. This goes back to around 88 and I think it was the Blue one, but not sure.

Yep, thanks for that interesting post, Gerhard.

I'm just interested to see how often, when a motorcycle is featured in some film production these days, it's a Ducati!

In one Boz Scaggs old album/CD cover, there is a shot of a Paso that he is standing by. Not sure year.
