    Massimo Tamburini

    massimo tamburini past away on saturday from lung cancer,

    we, as bikers owe a great deal to this man, if only to look and admire his creations in a career spanning 40 years,

    bimota, ducati, cagiva, mv, he made these bikes into works of art, (form and funtion)
    many thanks, RIP
    life is what happens to us while we are making other plans

    ^ ime a rocker from the early 60,s won a 750 norton atlas from mcn in 1966,
    could not get a racing licence because of an accident to my left eye so had to be content with track days,

    my stamping ground was the ace and busy bee cafe,s and of course the 59 club,
    sold my 2004 yamaha r1 and norton atlas to come here 4 years ago,
    allso had an sfc laverda 1000, based on the jota engine, bought for me new by a happy endings massage parler madam, based in southampton,

    so over 55 years biking ive owned or have ridden every bike from 60,s 2 strokes to the 916 and f4 mv,
    the factory aprilia was by far the best bike in the wet, but my love was the r1,

    i have to say that as good as italian bikes are to look at they are a pain ride.

    sorry to bore you barboro with my tear stained missive, but i do mis the biking,

    Not boring at all.

    I'd like to hear more on bikes. I'm not into bikes, but I used to ride them when I was in Asia.
