You're right, that works surprisingly well.

Just to add to the thread, and I know it's been mentioned here before, but I've always thought the GB500 was the best looking production cafe ever prpoduced. It's just plain right.

I agree, so much so that I sold my SV and bought one, here's a recent pic of mine:

I hope those ticket prices didn't break you. I wish they would do that here.

Re: The Cafe/2Stroke/Single/Twin/Brit/Euro/Cool Bike Pic Thread

The price redution was only a strategy from Estoril Circuit owners....



TICKET PRICES

PREÇO DOS BILHETES / TICKET PRICES
Bilhete 3 Dias / Weekend (3 DAYS) Ticket
Bancada A /Grandstand A €20,00
Bancada B /Grandstand B €20,00
Bancada C /Grandstand C €10,00
Bancada E /Grandstand E €10,00
Bancada H /Grandstand H €10,00


Bilhete 6ª-Feira / Friday Ticket
Peão / Standing Area €2,00 (à venda no Circuito/Only available at the Circuit)
Bancada E /Grandstand E €5,00


Bilhete Sábado/ Saturday Ticket .
Peão / Standing Area €2,00 (à venda no Circuito/Only available at the Circuit)
Bancada E /Grandstand E €5,00


Bilhete Domingo/ Sunday Ticket
Peão / Standing Area €2,00 (à venda no Circuito/Only available at the Circuit
Bancada E /Grandstand E €5,00


GP Portugal 2012,spectators

Friday – 12.594
Saturday – 25.603
sunday – 48.951
Total 3 days – 87.148.

... to put some pressure(...but very small) in Ezpeleta(motogp CEO),for Estoril continuity in Motogp.

But there is to many circuits in Iberia (Spain+Portugal) + Portugal deep crisis(to pay motogp participation fees- 8Milion€ ,i heard, but not sure;eg. F1-30Milion€) , unfortunely i think we have no chance. A Great circuit with a great racing heritage ..but money talks .....$$$$$.......

Regards,
BF

Re: The Cafe/2Stroke/Single/Twin/Brit/Euro/Cool Bike Pic Thread

The Guzzi is done..finished more or less.






Working on a new project now, Voxan engine, ohlins, marchesini, keihin, the full monty.
Will be a modern bike again with a classic theme, all hand beaten aluminium tank ,seat ,top fairing, all roundish classic shape and the alu will not be polished or smooth..just rough.

Going to take forever im sure but at least the inspiration is there.
