I think the pictures are fairly representative of the demography and people you will encounter in some parts of Paris.I didn't find anything shocking or disturbingly out of place in these streetshots. I would add that most (if not all) of them, for me, are distinctive of paris : not so much because of the people portrayed (although I do recognize typical parisian allure), but because of the little details in the street! Also, probably all the asians in the pictures are...
I see you have embraced the Elan. I've had for 8 years now, best one I ever bought.!luc

Hardly a no-go zone, I have walked there myself with wife...
I had not read this part of the forum for quite some time now, it is really worse than I ever imagined. !luc
All three have been killed. !luc
Might get more help asking on the cafe racer thread, don't you think?
Not at all, everything is perfectly clear. It helps if you have been following it from the beginning, as you should if you are ready to shell out $700 for a jacket... @canstyleace has summed it up rather nicely up above.I agree though, @Thurston Bros has a lot of patience dealing with some of the crowd here!!luc
