On any Sunday, traveling the winding roads nestled in the mountains of Portugal you will find the “Cafe Racer 351 Club.” Comprised of bikes of different years, makes and models the club meets regularly and stretches the legs of their trusty cafe steeds to the ton enjoying the fantastic countryside and landscape their country has to offer.
There aren’t many things in life that could be more enjoyable than twisting the throttle of a air-cooled twin up and down and in and out of the sea-side towns and mountain roads. The perfect place for a cafe racer, the quaint little villages in Portugal offer a fantastic taste of cafe culture with a very old-world feel. Brick paved roads, street cafes and some of the best latte’s in the world are just a few of the elements that inspire Cafe Racer club 351 members to assemble and share in the camaraderie that their club promotes.
Paying homage to the classic cafe racer style hailing from Britain, CR351 Club members sport everything from track worthy Triton’s to humble Honda’s. They do not discriminate. The only binding and pertinent element seems to be an appreciation for going fast on stripped down vintage scoots. Good on ya guys!
If you get a chance and can read Portuguese, take a look at their website or better yet, take a trip to Portugal and join them for a ride! From the looks of the video below it’s worth the trip.
