Concorso D'Eleganza Villa D'Este 2011
Historic Motorcycles

For the very first time, the organizers of the Concours D'Elegance Villa D'Este showed a special exhibition of motorcycles at Villa Erba.

BMW, main sponsor, and motorcycle-producer wants to establish a Concours for 2-wheelers, a good idea,
but I have to admit that I'm absolutely not interested in motorcycles... Sorry...

I didn't even manage to take at least one photo of each motorbike that was shown...
I hope that the enthusiasts forgive me that I just show the pictures that I have taken, without any comment,
at least I was able to identify the differencses between a Harley-Davidson and a Vespa...
