I used to live in Dubai when they aired Knight Rider way back in the 80s.. they were 1 hour episodes like the ones they showed on Star World last year. During the course of the serial the only dinky cars I bought were black Pontiac Trans Ams

I saw the re runs on Star World as many times as they repeated it I love that show soo much . I have pics of the actual KITT in universal Studios , will find and post them

loved jesse marks and his steed!

me and my friend used to lean out of our cars and shout "street hawk" to any bikers on the road. one day someone cornered us and demanded to know why we were calling him sweetheart!!

i think i still have the mrf mattel model sold in india lying around somewhere...

I have all the episodes on DVD

When I watched it for the first time last year after a gap of 25 yrs or so, I actually had goosebumps. It was that nostalgic. Especially when he hits the hyperthrust button !!

Are you serious?? Holy molly!! Now thats something that I have to get from you..

One of the most appealing shows of its times.. Loved the way the bike looked & the stuff it had on it.

Edit: I just remembered! I have the toy-replica of the bike with me here in Houston. My dad happened to find it in box full of my old stuff,and he brought this for me. Remember getting it as a gift when I was 8-9years old.

Was really young when StreetHawk used to be aired. I remember always dozing off during the episodes, only to wake up when the music got loud.
Most of the time I'd wake up in time to see him make the flying exit from his hideout! Couldn't really comprehend most of the story, but I loved to see the bike in action.
