Series 1 Laverda Jota

For me it all started at around 12 listening to the roar of a series 1 Laverda Jota 180 coming down my street.  The rider, my brothers friend, was just a legend to me and I still remember his name to this day, Peter Baron. I thought he was a god on this incredible machine. I own two Ducati motorcycles myself these days but still dream of owning a Jota myself. However getting one over here in Canada is extremely rare and costly. To me the Laverda was the ultimate iTALIAN muscle superbike in its day!

Guzzi

As a young lad, and after three years of riding (only) Japs, I rode my first Italian bike in the late 70's, a MkII Le Mans. In giving it some squirt, It took me to the white lines, dropping down with heavy engine breaking it took me to the gutter. This wasn't bad riding, it was raw torque!

Once mastered, it became an utter joy to ride. 

That day, I was converted to the 'V Twin', and to Italian bikes per se.

 Yep, I chose Italian V Twins over Jap fours in the 70's and have yet to try a four that dosen't leave me cold.

Yet Again MCN Overlook The 851

Bikes that changed the world 1980's = Bimota DB1 !!! Wot Bimota took a 750 aircooled Duke and put some fibreglass body on it for an exorbitant price. sold less than 700. THE Italian bike of the 80's and early 90's HAS TO BE the 851. Four valve heads, water cooled, fuel injected, sexy as fcuk once they replaced the 16 inch wheel with a 17. And when you really compare it, it was the nearest thing to a real race rep until Yam brought out the R7. I owned a series 3 in the early 90's (white frame, shortened sidepanels - like an 888 but without the crappy gold superbike stickers) and it was sublime - like a bulldog, and for my money better looking than a 916, which of course only existed because of the 851.
