A few weeks ago I was in Mallorca on a short break. I walked into a small tapas restaurant (Manolo’s Bodega). The walls inside the tiny place were covered with photographs. Many of them pictured people on motorbikes and track days. One caught my attention, it was of a guy sitting on a RC30. So I asked, who is the fellow? That’s my brother, the girl in front of me replied. It was 1 a.m. and so her brother, who happened to be the cook, was sitting in the same room, having a drink. We ended up talking endlessly about motorbikes. Spain is now on top of the motorbike world. Marquez just secured a historical title and Lorenzo who, by the way is from Mallorca, came second, and Pedrosa finished 2013, third. The first Italian, a man called Rossi, was only fourth. Italy used to be the ruling country in motorbike racing, at least in the smaller categories, for many years. But now, just like in football, Spain is king. And so, for the aficionados who might read us from the beautiful Iberic peninsula, and related islands, here is a treat in your honour:
Let’s hear it from the seller himself:
Suzuki RG500 Gamma CH, imported from Germany to Spain. Nice clean 100% standard original bike all round, only done 39000 kilometers from new.
We have fully gone through the bike, fresh original fairing (plastics, no fiberglass), new bearings, new steering head bearings,new brake pads all round, new sprockets, new bidgestone tyres, new fork oil seals and oil, engine oil changed, new air filter, plugs, carbs cleaned and set up. Lower cowl is included and mounted though not visible in the pictures. The engine is in great shape. It will come with spanish historical documentation. Very clean machine, runs and looks supeb, very collectable and good future investment. It has been measured over 220 km/h in Jerez motor track. (Spain)
