Spring riding.

 
There is nothing like riding in warm spring weather. You can smell the woods, fields and the lily of the valley……Mix that with the smell of a dynamo who have decided to call it a day, and you have the ultimate “scratch and sniff” experience…
Well, people my age have nothing to do out after dark anyway…

Free beer...

 
 
 
Last night I helped a friend to install a new magneto and set the ignition timing on a 1938 Ariel Red Hunter.
After he left I discovered a bottle beer he had left for me…..
 
 
 
 
 
I don`t need enemies when I have friends like that…..

 You are not supposed to go behind ropes to get a closer look at the displays……but you can’t stop thru enthusiasts…. I won`t bring them to a zoo…..
 
 
 

 
Velocette Thruxtons and ass cracks (well, nearly)…..goes together like a hand in glove….

 
“How to get your knee down on a motorcycle”….You got that totally wrong Gunnar.

Classic Remise Düsseldorf

 
 
This is the place to go to in Düsseldorf. Here you can have a meal and a beer among classic cars and bikes.
 
 
 



At this museum like old roundhouse for locomotives you can find workshops, related businesses, retail shops for classic car and motorcycle and sales and showrooms for classic cars. There is also a Ducati dealer there.









 
 
Owners of classic cars can rent one of the 75 completely glassed-in individual garages where they can park their cars.
 








A Moto Guzzi 65B, 63 cc from 1948. This is for sale at one of the dealers.






From the bistro.

This is Norwegian Kjell Bakke leading “Hedemoraloppet”, Sweden, 1949. He led the 350 cc race on a Velocette KTT until the engine blew up. Earlier the season he had won “Juneloppet” and finished fourth in “Stockholmsloppet” on the Velocette.
