Every country have a trend in motorcycles depending on various factors. In Denmark you see a lot of less expensive bikes like the 600cc Suzuki Bandit because taxes are insane and it’s a pretty deasent bike that has a lot of after market parts available. In Germany you obviously see a lot of BMW’s. In Italy a lot of Ducatis etc. etc.
But every once in a while you come across a motorcycle that stands out from the norm. Here’s a few bikes I saw in Berlin, Germany, that you don’t see every day.
70’s style kawa chopper
First off is this sweet Kawazaki chopper that looks like it was taken straight out of a 70’s chopper magazine. It might be an original that was actually built in the 70’s. Then somebody took really good care of it. Maybe it’s a new build by someone who paid very close attention to the style from back then. One or the other it’s a really sweet motorcycle.
Yamaha XT 500
Second motorcycle is a real classic. An 80’s something Yamaha XT 500. I remember wanting to have one of thos when I was a kid. Looks like the exact same color combination as the ones we saw back then. Might not be in mint condition but still in pretty good state for a bike that looks like it has been an everyday rider for 20 years.
Two very different bikes. But equally high ranking in coolness and style. It’s great that people actually ride bikes like this instead of them just sitting in a garage unused somewhere.
