Before I put online the shop, this will take a bit of more time, I post here the sale prices of the old shaped tops:

Giulia 40€
STB 2.5 (delrin body/metal cap) 25€ - 100€ five tops
Love 30€

Thr first top with the new shapes will be the Sofia, after the Giulia, the Love and the Giulia XL.

Like Jeremy all my bikes were sold and I stopped riding when I became a father. It was one of the earliest lifestyle casualties brought about by marriage and children.

Jim, you are lucky to have experienced this. I didn't realize a passenger would be allowed. I have been told that the bikes used for these shows are modified and need to have proper style fuel setup so they don't stall. One of the shows I went to used magnificent Indian motorcycles for this reason. Did you think to have someone shoot a video?

I'm definitely willing to cut a deal as my contribution, but perhaps the details would be better hashed out off of the board? I'll PM my info, Jorge.


hello Myk_Myk I'm sure we can work it out ;that's the goal of ITSA/the association to help events
tell us about your requirements and we will respond quickly

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 !

You mean you actually went up the Wall of Death on the back of a bike??

Rode fast Japanese sport bikes for many years until 1st kid was born, and not always with due restraint. Three strict rules kept me alive: Never without a helmet, never in an altered mental state, and absolutely, positively, no Walls of Death.

Jim, I have worked in motorcycle shops for thirty some years and you just made me realize, I don’t have any stories...
Happy to hear your pilot stayed below the red line on the Wall of Death!!

Wow! You rode a bike on the Wall of Death! Amazing!  :o

I don't ride motorcycles but last week pulpowsky took me as passenger in one to a Milonga in the downtown of Madrid, where he could not drive a car because of city restrictions. That was frightening enough!  :D
