There seems to be a "retro-bike" inclusion factor in this thread that technically goes against the "old" motorcycle theme.

I've never been one to complain though!

No. Actually, "twins" is a term that can apply to more than just cylinders.

Thank you.

Yep. A combination any classic bike enthusiast can appreciate however!
To be fair though, you are off on both counts and THAT is not a girl.
Mods...please remove all posts with women on old bikes!

Really? What is it? W650? I thought is was old enough, but the angle was so funky, I couldn't confirm.
That photographer has tons of great non-moto photos, if anyone is interested:

Here is my contribution for today.


Before anyone yells at me that the Triumph is 'not old enough', the Vespa P is a 1979-1985.
