Italy. Just saying the name conjures up idyllic images in my brain: my grandparents living their lives in a small village before emigrating to America, espresso cafes in the courtyards, delicious food and wine, passionate and emotional people, the Italian Grand Prix and the Mille Miglia. Then, there are the motorcycles. Cagiva, Bimota, Aprilia, Ducati, […]

Post Sale Update: This Laverda sold for $6,600 after 9 bids on eBay. [x_line] The Laverda RGS 1000 is one of the last versions of the big triple, which tamed the “peaky” Jota engine, isolated the rider from vibrations with rubber mounts from the engine, and added the half-fairing.
