Hello everybody,

1) yes, the book will be available during Breganze Rally next July in Motoclub Breganze memorabilia stand. So if you are attending the Rally, you can get a copy of the new book directly there (no need to reserve one, just buy it there)

2) CLEM: I got your email. I will be back to you in next days. Thanks for your help offer.

3) Marty (OZ): as you mentioned in your post, could you collect an order for NSW Club members (or just Laverda fans/owners) who are interested in buying the new book? In this way things would me much easyer to organize shipment to OZ and of course it will be cheaper cost.
Please send me an email to laverda750book@gmail.com , I can give you more datails.
I have contacts with QLD and Victoria Clubs as well to manage the same kind of grouped order.

For any other questions, please just write to  laverda750book@gmail.com . We are using this account to manage all the things related with the new book.
Thanks,
Giovanni

one for me please Giovanni.

I will be in Breganze in two weeks for the 70th with a car (and bikes of course!) and I have informed JLO that I can transport books back to UK if that is of help.

I could do a bulk pickup, but you wouldn’t see them until September when my bike and gear get back
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

I finally got a chance to sit down and read the book and I love it!  Fantastic! Thanks Giovanni.

One question, just how did they get those bikes to “balance” in the studio shots?

this is, what Carlo Vajenti told me about that question:

"no retouch, the bikes were supported by a pole positioned behind, fixed to the floor and hidden from the camera"
