I subsribe to CMM and for quite a few years you could close your eyes open pages and say with confiction 4 cylinder Honda page 10 /Yamaha page 15 strip down of another Honda page 20 etc.
My God new Editor and in the last 5 issues an Italian bike in everyone even 2 in some, good reports/photos.
This months includes the 851 with a balanced report good pictures but for a change little of the downside and more about the passion of riding one and the beauty of the frame and engine brilliant.
The 851/888 may not be as beautiful as the 916 onwards but its the bike that gave birth to Ducatis revival and to me has more soul and for anyone has the chance to ride one of these gems compared to 916/748 will acknowledge there charisma.

nice one - and I'm sorry but an 888 IS just as beautiful as a 916 in my book.

Showing my age maybe
