    Yesterday I found my old hard drive with a lot of pictures of classic, and interesting pics of motorcycles, that I took over the last few years.
    I decided to add the latest ones, and share them with you.

    Here is the link to the gallery:
    https://photos.app.goo.gl/zITiZhVZiLWQlQud2

    The pictures where taken mainly in:
    - Barcelona motorcycle museum, Spain
    - Car nad Motorcycle museum, Szczecin, Poland
    - MZ Museum, Berlin, Germany
    - Numerous trips to Japan
    - Technical museum in Prague, Czech Republic

    I don't remember all of the model names, but I can easily track them down, as I took pictures of the description plates for lot of them.

    If you are interested in some particular bike, or museum, please ask in this thread.
    If I mixed up somethig, feel free to point it out

    I encourage you to also upload the collection of the classic bike pics you took over the years. Looking through them will make waiting for the spring a lot more bearable :)
    Just remember- upload only the pics you took personally.

    Thank you again Nachtflug! I had a very nice evening browsing through those pictures.
    The Britten doesn't rock my boat, but this Velocette takes the cake. I cannot stop looking at it.

    Try this. From a trip to to the Classic Bike Museum near Tsukuba (Science City), north of Tokyo, Japan.
    There's a few road side junk cars in there too. Nice collection of some rarer (for Japan).
    Let me know if the link doesn't work!

    What is your go-to museum camera set up? Shooting cars and bikes is my favorite subject matter. Looks like you are using some sort of 11-20mm lens, is this correct? One of the drawbacks to MC travel that I find is shooting with compact cameras that have a much longer focal length.

    WOW! those are great, specially the road side junk, I've been to Japan many times, and I could not find any old or derelict cars, maybe 2 or 3. Only some old, forgotten scooters.

    they exist. One of the below is wasted, the others (Singer, Rootes, Humber) could be brought back to life. These i just found on the road sides. They're not junked, exactly.

    here's some for Iwashita Collection, in Kyushu, southern Japan. The largest bike collection in Japan, plus a lot of other stuff (old Sabre jet, local memorabilia). Very good collection of old Japanese 1920s-1940s brands (Cabton, Pointer, etc.), not just the better known Meguro and Rikuo.
    Lots of more recent Honda racers, they have had Kenny Roberts in for a few visits. (Honda Racing does a lot of development work SW of here)
