Coupes Moto Légende
Every year in May, the Coupes Moto Légende is held at the Dijon-Prenois race track in Eastern France. It's a big 'classic' bike show, with the term 'classic' meaning over 25 years old, so plenty of bikes that people my age remember. There's club stands, autojumbles, and numerous of the bikes, both road and race, are taken out on the track for demonstration laps. In theory, these are not races, but someone forgot to tell some of the race riders!
Some video from this year's event to give you a flavour, and here's a good gallery of bikes at a previous meeting.
I'm planning on going next year, (26th - 27th May), so if anyone else is interested, get and touch and we'll try and arrange to meet up. How exactly we'll arrange to meet at an event with about 20,000 other people, in a place I've not been to before, and can only speak a rudimentary amount of the language; will be a slight problem, but I'm sure we'll work something out!
Website for the event gives more details, and there's plenty of video from previous events on YouTube and Dailymotion. There's a particularly good video here, but Blogger doesn't seem to like posting video directly from anyone other than YouTube.
