Surprise encounter with a Jawa, the brand of Czech bike Phil used to own
Phil's model was never this flash, and he painted his orange so no one would steal it, which worked for a while.
Little did we expect, when we headed for the Museum of Technology in Brno, that we would run into an emblem of Phil's past. But there, within the exhibition of vehicles, was the Jawa motorcycle. It was a fancy model of the Czech brand of bike that Phil had when we met, the bike he took me around on in those early days when I was a terrible pillion rider, always leaning the wrong way!
The museum was a refreshing change of pace from baroque, rococo, gothic, and romanesque to fly wheels, pistons, cogs, crankshafts, forges, dies, capacitors, glazes...
And Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, was a delightful place.
