A little back story to that photo: it was a publicity stunt organised by Yamaha France's former boss, Jean-Claude Olivier (who sadly died in a road accident earlier this year) in order to boost Yamaha's brand recognition and expand the client base in France and also to promote the range of lightweight dual-purpose trailies that Yamaha was producing at the time. Always a man for flamboyant publicity happenings, Olivier realised that he needed to associate the brand with a household name. Through his business and personal contacts he contacted Brigitte Bardot and the rest - to use a well-hackneyed expression - is history.

btw....this is all copy and pasted...I'm not that knowledgable ...or smart
