Bluescreen technology and a camera - suspended on a mobile crane, created the illusion of the speeding bikes on Endor. Squint and you'll see Carrie and Mark clinging on for dear life, trying not to fall off.

To capture the propper lighting, some mini-sets were moved off the soundstage and out onto the parkinglot. This, I believe, is the filming of a scene with the walkers - later destroyed by the Ewoks, in the forest.

Filming the scene when Leia counters Han's declaration of love from ESB, with the notorious "-I love you. -I know."

On the forest moon of Endor... Mayhew and Fisher checking their weapons. (But where are they pointing those things? Looks like Mayhew's got a happy trigger finger.)

Look Look George, I got a splinter! - George Lucas and Harrison Ford (looking like a lumberjack) discussing a scene, in the middle of the forest.

The dramatic scene where Leia was wounded while Han tried to pick the lock.

"On the set, I would have to say, 'Don't blow up my planet, please!' and all I'm doing is looking at a board with and X on it, held by an assistant director who couldn't wait for the tea break." - Carrie Fisher on having to pretend a lot on the set (Rolling Stone)
