Right at the end of my well deserved holiday, it was Paris this year, for a romantic jo journey with my girlfriend, no motorcycles involved as I had to think of her, anyway, I can’t help but observing on the rues du Paris.
France is well known for good taste and most especially Paris, with a wealthy upper class who is in need of commuting through densely crowded streets full of cars rushing to get somewhere.
Motorbikes are the best solution and les Parisien have a good taste for BMWs, Triumphs and Mash -national little and lovely bikes.
Despite the huge amount of scooters you find in every city, Paris is well populated by many R nine Ts and GSs which were quite common.
The presence of British bikes was mainly by new Triumph classics and some deceiving bikes which looked just like them until you approached and find out there are many Kawasaki W650s in the city.
I expected to see more Ducatis, which I saw some, mainly Monsters, but not that remarkable.
So by looking at the number of café racers and scramblers and the many bikes restored you could find, for instance many Hondas and old BMWs you can easily deduce that when I’m on a romantic trip with my beloved girlfriend I cannot forget my bikes are parked lonely at home…
