What is the point of buying an old bike? Does having crappy brakes and no-power ruin the enjoyment of riding motorcycles or are we too obsessed with going faster and doing more?
SWe have recently stepped into the world of old bikes like we never thought we would, testing a 1991 Africa Twin for our new series, Retro vs Modern.

Over 5 years ago I saw an old motorcycle poster on @sinuhexavier’s Tumblr page. I hadn’t had a motorcycle for a few years and was so inspired that I bought one within a week.
