Saturday was another of the regular Kempton Motorcycle Jumble’s, run By Eric and his EGP team. These are great jumbles (swap meets for those in the US) very well organised and run by Eric and his team. And as usual for the classic motorcycle enthusiast, there was plenty to see and buy, for those of such a mind.

As we head towards the end of February, and spring is just around the corner, I hope a few of you are managing to get the bikes out for a run or two.  I am busy here, still trying to find employment (anybody need a digital photographer?) So not getting too much motorcycling in, but we do have another Kempton jumble on the horizon, in fact it is around the same time as the clocks go forward, and we get those long-awaited lighter evenings.

So with Kempton in mind I guess I should post a few more shots from the last one, so here are a few more of the French bikes I shot while there.

I like to see bikes from other countries, it makes a pleasant change from seeing the usual British bikes, that adorn the stalls at motorcycle jumbles. And this Kempton never dissapointed in that respect, as there were many old French motorcycles for sale…
