hello again
what i really liked in this show is that it's not only the bikes running
before they do an open air performance with loud music and the story of a guy
 in the North of the  Artic,who could ride horizontally on ice ..then they start the bike
he used , the legendary "Ural" bike(...)which is on stage at full regime...
the whole crew wears funny clothes and it feels like a side-show act from the 60ties

when they took me for a ride in the morning at 11, I got a 10mn briefing explaining what i should not do
basically you have to behave as a luggage,giving little air friction
the bike has only one gear, but they also use a yam500 which they start in secong gear
 during the first circles the climb is slow, the rider stands up and accelerates
then he sits and keeps riding up:visually it's amazing, and not speaking of the muffler sound,
which is cut a few inches after the cylinder

hello again
some precisions, it was during this event :
https://www.facebook.com/Galeria-Biker-Bay-873570916028168/
the motorcycle is a 350 /4stroke
very efficient torque at low regime
the climb is very progressive and the speed is in fact lower than the impression you have
when you watch the riders from the top
the bike never brakes, it accelerates and slows down smoothly

as a seasoned biker , I was quite confident , it was not a "deadly challenge"
the crew known as "les fils du vent" counts 12 people living thanx to this attraction
they have around 20/30 dates per year in bike shows and gatherings, they have been touring for 8 years
 no serious accident so far except for a fire once and a fall due to a slippery zone after some guys
poured their beer bottles from the top !

The wall of beer is bound to be more dangerous, but it still sounds like more fun.

I received the top and looks even better in person than in the photos! :o 8)

Holding the top is like having a piece of very fine jewelry.
Watching it spin and precess on and on is mesmerizing!

I never thought I would enjoy so much spinning a finger top, but there is something fulfilling in imparting energy to such a well balanced object.

Iacopo is tops in tops! Thanks!!!

Great scores Renee!
You might have beaten me on the Hooter, I need to check the list I finally sent.
By the way, I have not heard back, so I'm guessing I lost on everything.  :( But that's not all bad, as that would save me a TON of money  ::)
