Default Salon Moto Legende-Paris : Motorcycle Show

The annual edition of Salon Moto Legende opened in Paris today.It is set admist the Bois de Vincennes next to the Chateau de Vincennes in Parc Floral.
Since i was invited by the Lambretta Club of France,I decided to check out the motorcycles too.
Some very fine motorcycles were under display and some unheard names were there.Though im not a motorcycle aficianado,i couldnt help looking at few BSAs,Nortons and Triumphs.
This expo also exhibitied tons of spares and parts of all the motorcycles and becomes a unique rendez-vous point for motorcycle lover.
Anyone passing Paris the next 3 days must take a look at this unique expo.

Hopefully you can find a better camera that does justice to these amazing machines. Of course, a steady hand also helps

Don't let it bother you. I think you did just fine with your camera. I loved the photos you clicked.
A coincidence of sorts, for last year my friend Jerome's R12 was presented at the same stand of the Amicale BMW R12 Club of France.
Have a look at this photo

Thanks again for starting this thread with your photos.
Best regards
