Use the time you have for something worthwhile, lads. Be like Massimo.

“When I was a small child I use to live about 60 kilometers from Rimini. It was the 1940s and at that time there were very few motorcycles on the road so they would only come past my house maybe once or twice a week. I would listen out for them and when I heard them coming I would get so excited and rush out to watch them ride past. I remember there were two brothers who lived near us and owned a Moto Guzzi Falcone. Close to our house there was a series of curves and I could tell which brother was riding by the sound of the engine, the way they changed gear and rode the bends. My passion for bikes started then, they are my first memories and still very special to me.”

Sad news. But, what a legacy for future designers! The best of the best.

Bimota connection!

He not only designed icons like the 916 & MV, but I recently learned that Tamburini was one of the founding trio of Bimota. The "ta" at the end stood for Tamburini. Here was a guy who elevated motorcycle design beyond craft & science... into the realm of art. I'll bet that where ever he is now has fine German Silver instruments, an infinite set of French Curves & a celestially perfect drafting table.
