My husband’s hobby is old motorbikes. He doesn’t own a Jawa of his own but many of his friends do. This year’s Jawasakki Rally was held in Siikaranta Hotel Nuuksio which is only about a 25 minute drive away from us. As neither of us have never been there and the weather was fairly good we decided to go there. My husband met many acquaintances some which I too have learnt to know.
Over 200 Jawa bikes, from many countries, attended the event. Our friend S. who also took part in the 3 day event said he had been talking to a guy who drove all the way from Scotland. I don’t know much about motorcycles. To me some of them looked like they had never hit the road. So clean and shiny. Others like they had made it twice around the world. Dirty, rusty.
wow, those are cool! no wonder your husband loves them. the long one in the picture with Canelo sitting on the ground is particularly interesting looking, i wonder if it’s some kind of a “kuorma-moottoripyörä”? 😀
The long one really looked strange ! I think you nailed it. It must be a “kuorma-moottoripyörä” 😀
The old bikes are interesting. I think some people collect them and do not ride them.
Many don’t necessarily ride them, only take them out for a special occasion and if the weather is nice.
