    Leaving work last Thursday or so, I spotted a couple of motorcycles that didn't look like the ones we see everyday. They were just a bit distant. But I thought that one of them looked like some classic vertical twin.

    Then these guys stopped and dismounted right there on a little side road that was convenient for me. So I rode on over and had a look.

    Turns out they were a 1958 Royal Enfield and a 1998 Moto Guzzi.

    There aren't many Enfields in these parts, I can tell you. I know of two. And they're the modern Indian made ones. (Though still pretty cool) This could well be the only English Enfield for many, many miles.

    I knew of one Moto Guzzi around here about twenty years ago. I haven't seen it in quite some time. There probably aren't many of them around, either.

    And while we're at it, check out this little beauty I spotted on the way to work three or four weeks ago.
