Our diminishing fleet of motorcycles has taken on a definite European flavor. For the first time in....well..forever,
there are no Asian machines in our garage. Of course, that situation will eventually change, but for a while at least, it's 'Euro' all the way.



After recently selling her Harley, Teresa is on a half-hearted hunt for a late 60's-mid-70's BMW. Probably a 750-900 /6 would be ideal for her, something in good running and cosmetic order, as stock as possible.

I think that'a a real nice mix of bikes.  I would have a great riding any one of them.  How has the Thruxton been so far?

Do you know what it is about those BMW's that Teresa likes so much or why it has her attention?

Furthermore, if you swap out that English bike for a Japanese you could have a WWII Axis garage.

Could you even make an Allied garage?  You've got Harley or Indian, and of course Triumph but I can't think of a French motorbike.

Your thinking about the french WW2 bike with the basket in front, bread standard and peddles.   There was a WW2 French Gnome-Rhone AX2 1939 but really a BMW knock off.
