RUDGE




We go faster, techno, fashion, but nobody makes bikes like that any more. From inner Switzerland, I've seen Mr. Hartmann riding it here in north Italy, and thanks a lot for this great tribute to RC6. Comparing this motorbike to what i see actually on road, most of people haven't a clue of what does it mean to have a real bike. In my very strict dimension, i can taste this ignorance once some people ask me why i try an i try to put down racing my V2 that is so fragile and delicate and strange, instead of a 600 cc jap easy and cheap; my first intention to treat is really go fucking them to hell, but i still resist pretty than give space to my bad education. This is a Rudge Ulster 1937.
