As I recall he made several jumps on an American Eagle that had a white gas tank. I believe that those bikes were rebadged Laverdas. Anybody have more info?

Alans helmet should be required for any Italian bike, looks really cool.

I need to find an Aria Cathcart rep. for my Triumph, that's assuming my back-orderd front brake pads ever show up so I could actually RIDE it.

Huh. Interesting tidbit - his primary bike he bought new in '84. 11k miles. All of 550 miles per year. Even for a fair weather rider, that's not much.

Yet another reminder why the 999, multi-strada, etc. are so offensive. I never did care much for the sport-touring LaverdaÂ’s looks but the rest of the Laverdas were lovely to behold. The newbies just don't look any where near as good as the older ones. What a shame they couldn't revive the true spirit of the older lineage.
