Guy Procter, 30 November 2011 09:27

When Ducati set out to build the 1199 – the most extreme superbike it could envisage – it did everything but address the bad idea at its core. With good reason.

Roland Sands 'Dirty Desmo': des-irable or des-ecration?

Guy Procter, 22 November 2011 09:38

Roland Sands recently took the brave/insane decision to accept a commission to streetfighter a Desmsedici RR. Or dirt tracker-it anyway, as is their wont where he lives.
