I’m in Europe again visiting family, and I noticed the people here are avid motorcycle users. They ride it every day to commute to and from work, and for their errands. The streets are full of parked bikes waiting for their owners to return.
I also noticed that a lot of the bikes are impressive. Every now and then a superbike will go roaring past, making me do a double take to see if it’s an exotic car. But a lot of them I see just parked on the curb. I may not know a lot about two-wheeled machines, but I know amazing machines when I see them. So out my iPhone came and I snapped a few photos of the bikes when I could.
You have to forgive me if I can’t identify the motorcycles. What I know about bikes is inversely proportional to what I know about cars. You can see the names on some of them clearly, but for the sake of consistency I didn't label any of them and let the pictures speak for themselves. If you care to enlighten me about these machines, please do. And if, like me, you want to be more informed about motorcycles, watch out for our sister bike magazine called Top Bikes next month.
