Yes, it was a lovely day for it and yes there was a good turn-out. I thought the purpose of the MV revup was to get us to pay attention for the Judge's decisions. Apparently not

Ha, I missed the MV rev up - was around the corner at one of the cafes having a coffee. Did hear the Guzzi rev up. Then some whacka started doing same on a bike over near the other side of the plaza (one of the Laverdas?), with copious amounts of smoke! I was sitting over the other side of the plaza and could see the smoke rising - I thought a rubbish bin was on fire!

LOL - saw the smoke and like you thought it was a bin, then realised it was a bike - it wasn't near either of ours so I didn't worry too much.

The pictures on the website are from 2012, I guess they will put up some from this year at some stage. There were 851/888's present

It may well be the only time that a 860GT wins a prize - I guess because it is probably the only one left as was - it was orange!

I thought I heard them mention that a 998R won a prize as well, I don't know where that one was parked, because I am sure one of us would have seen it.

It completely slipped my mind to take photos. You wouldn't believe it but there was an SP3, an SP4 and an SP5 there! Biggest turn out of 851/888 for a number of years and they were all SP's. They looked sensational as well.
