When we were looking for new motorcycle trends, we drifted off a little again. As always. But we’re sure you know it - a little Instagram here, a little Facebook there and bam - an hour passed. But this time we are quite happy about it, because we stumbled upon the Facebook page of Officine Rossopuro. And we spent quite some time there.

The page is full of customized Moto Guzzis. One more beautiful than the other. When you ask Filippo Barbacane, the founder of Officine Rossopuro what persuaded him to do what he does, the word passion comes up again and again. The history of the design forge starts back in 1993. With creativity and for love of design Filippo Barbacane decides to turn his passion into a career and settles down in the region Abruzzen near Pescara. Another 5 years later the “Firestarter Garage” was founded. Customizing and design - typically italian with a touch of American influence.

From Enduro and Racer up to the Cafe Racer everything is being customized - well, customizing or complete design prototypes. Filippo has taste when it comes to beautiful and coherent shapes and one can see that immediately. The bikes appear authentic. No folderol. He likes to reduce - what’s left is the essence - the character of every single bike.

Since 2015 Officine Rossopuro has a new showroom - with more than 300 square meters. And yes, the shop of Filippo is on our trip list. Enough of the words for now, see for yourself. Enclosed are some snapshots of the two-wheelers from Pescara.

CRUISIN’ AROUND AUSTRALIA: FROM WOLLONGONG TO MELBOURNE

Published by MOGI at July 20, 2018 in Articles
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at July 13, 2018 in Articles
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.

THE WEISSBORN STORY EPISODE 8 – THAILAND ON A MOTORBIKE

Published by JOHANNES WEISSBORN at June 08, 2018 in Articles
A sunny day. The last few kilometers accompanied by our guides through Myanmar. The first limestone cliffs appear. From Kawkareik, a well-paved road meanders over the Tenasserim ridge. For the first time since leaving Western Turkey, the tires are clinging to undamaged and grippy asphalt. After 170km Mae Sot is reached, the border town to Thailand: from poverty to wealth. Thailand is an infrastructure and economic paradise.
