The glory days when men were men and the Dakar had no moto speed limits.

Never enough....

I'm still mesmerized by FM's skills on a 950. RIP FM.

And I bet he slaps his forehead when somebody starts another 'what tyre for the 950' thread...

RIP Andy C and Fab! And all those cut short.

Meoni, my hero on two wheels. He is missed. I have a constant reminder everyday i swing my leg over my 950.

And when I sit at my desk

A missed opportunity...

When in Rome last week I reached out to Italian Advmember Pattacca asking if he could recommend a top KTM shop for me to check out.

Here was his reply:


Finally someone replied to my question in the italian forum and I got the address for you.

Romeo Feliciani is the mechanic his shop is

New Steel

Via Madonna del Rivaio,

Castiglion Fiorentino (Arezzo)


If you go there you will meet the world GURU of LC8.......
the Big Boss
the unique
the myth.

Unfortunately I ran out of free time. But the thought came that I'm not even close to the same league of tear down LC8 experience as such a master. But I still have so many questions I'd love to ask Romeo. Or even better would be a live feed interview from Romeo on Rally Radio with Lyndon Poskitt...

Any other interest here? We could get an actual figure of what Fabrizio's bike weighed in at... Plus LC8 weight reduction and power tips... His impressions on filters, exhausts and tuning over the years...
