Some folks get really worked up about “vintage-only” events. I’m not a fan of elitism in the rally scene, but looking at these fantastic photos of a ride from Epsom to Brighton on pre-1914 motorcycles, it’s easy to understand the desire to experience this group of vintage machines on the road or on display without a bunch of off-the-shelf metric cruisers mucking it up. Modern scooters have plenty of merits, but there’s nothing like vintage, and with all the rallies and rides going on these days, a few all-vintage events would be refreshing.

  1. Love that Douglas! Check it out, that’s a longitudinally-mounted horizontally-opposed twin (like a BMW boxer) motor. Brilliant!
