And mum and dad on the Bantam.

There's a blog entry with another photo of the Bantam at this link.
Thanks Clarissa for these beautiful pictures.

From the same era here is one from a real lady adventurer also on a Bantam.
Last summer I read the reprint of her book on this trip. It is a good read.

That's no dog - it's an Airedale. The King of Terriers!

Our two wouldn't have sat on a motorcycle for long.

Maico in Wales

Yes you are right. The picture was taken in England just before crossing the border. From the moment we entered Wales it started raining and it didn't stop until we left Wales a few days later by crossing the Severn near Bristol (M4). It was not until we spend some time on the south coast of England that we dryed up completely. Still a very nice trip though.

Cheers, Piet.

Love the lady with the Airedale! We've just ordered the book.

Here's a story worth reading, Marjorie Cottle, ISDT rider.

That ad was done by Cooper Motors, the West coast importer in 1965 or 66. Gray International was the Eastern importer and was in Detroit. I worked part time for the owner uncrating and assembling bikes he retailed directly.

I have a friend who raced Maicos from the 1950s through the 1980s, and he still has two 501s, one of which is still in the crate.

Lots of cool vintage bikes in this thread so far.

Some pics I found on the net. At this point, any pic is a possible re-post, but lord knows we've seen enough of those in this thread.
