Laverda 500
« on: January 30, 2020, 14:42 »
Hi, new friends.

These is my '79 Laverda 500 "Barcelona".
I restored it for last 4 years (slow motion). It's a real lightweight fast machine.
I live in Cantabria, north Spain, a true paradise for these kind of bikes.

Love Spain. Spent 10 days riding near Anso and Hecho last year, and had a great time there. Met up with Maurice and 9 others for a trip through Europe.

Maybe we can meet you in 4 years.
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.

Deliberately disconnected to avoid potential use as evidence?!  ;D

Really interesting thing.
The thrue is that there are no more limits in these roads than the standard 90 Km/h for open roads.
I reckon these speed will be rarely crossed in that cornering port.
And as tell the really bikers, "Is easy to press the throttle in the straight line"
