You hang around folks who love vintage cars enough and you'll inevitably meet vintage motorcycle guy or gal. They mean well, love all things with oil pumps (and some without) but will take every opportunity to espouse the virtues of the under-appreciated vintage motorcycle world. "You can store a dozen in the space of a single Cadillac!" he or she will exclaim before shifting to extolling the virtues of the fun-per-dollar that few four-wheel contraptions can rival. Allow them to ramble. Contemplate their points. Come to your own conclusions. You now want to buy a motorcycle. I thought so. Good for you. Now what do you buy?
Read the entire article on Hagerty.com:
I am from Canada and I have 5 collector cars with Hagerty. I ride my 58 Harley about 300 miles a summer. Our summers are short and our weather sucks. Why can I not get insurance from you?
on the other hand.
ive owned a Morris minor, and an Ariel 500.
4 Vauxhalls (3 vivas and a victor) and 3 Nortons (68 fastback, 68 P11A and 72 Commando)
A 68 Rover TC2000 and a 70 RE Interceptor II i traded it for.
3 Mazda trucks and two Yamahas (TY250 and TX650) and 2 hondas (CB350 and CB450)
A 95 318TI, a 98 M Roadster and an R60
and 8 Moto Guzzis, but no italian cars
A great pairing would be to drive a Triumph Spitfire and ride a BSA Spitfire. 😜 But I drive a Triumph Spitfire (and IIA Landy) and ride a Norton Commando. I think it’s THE best combo. 😊👍
Yeah this article should only have been about older vehicles. Commando is a great choice paired up with a 60s, early 70s British something. Made in England!
