Seems like ages

Like 20years ago, one of the annual trip-outs  for us
were the classic races on the Monthelery track , near Paris.
It wasn`t just a track weekend, maybe a better word for this event was
"outdoor museum"
most of the bikes and pilots were factory-riders and factory-bikes.
Such as the Mv`s out of private collections
Here with living legend mr.Phil Read
and the owner of this bike and chairman of the Britains MVagusta Club
Even one year, there was worlds largest Laverda SFC line-up
26 of them  to be excact,
never seen before and never brought together afterwards.
Never mind the dude in shorts in front , that `s just me in my younger years
(don`t You dare zoom -in on me)
