Old Motorcycles

Cyprus
For motorcycle enthusiasts this mode of transport is exhilarating as it gives them a sense of freedom and independence to go where other modes of transport fail to take them. Every motorcyclist is fascinated by the technology, the performance and innovations, such as electrical reversing, that newer models introduce. With the most modern machines, with heatable leather seats and cruise control, a rider can enjoy the landscape as it unfolds before his eyes. Many young people today aspire to own a motorcycle to fulfill a dream or impress a friend while others go motorcycle racing.
