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.

TRIUMPH TIGER 1200 - A TEST BY MOTORRADMAGAZIN

Published by CLEMENS KOPECKY at 13 dicembre 2017 in Articoli
The dried-up river bed blurs in front of my burning eyes. Drops of sweat tickle on the scalp under my motocross helmet. Even the Gore-Tex membrane seems to have long since given up its mission of allowing water vapour to pass through to the outside of my riding suit. In the sauna, now would be the time to pour water onto the rocks. But it’s late autumn in southern Spain and I never thought I would get so sweaty when riding a motorcycle at just over ten degrees Celsius...

Well, this morning starts early as usual, as my military service gave me one of the best and worst traits in the world, not being able to sleep well. So, I get up to watch the sunrise in one of my favourite spots. From my home in Shellharbour I travel through Port Kembla, Scarborough, Coalcliff, all the way up to Bald Hill. Which is where I want to watch the sunrise. Getting there at 5 o’clock, as bright orange glow starts to hit the Horizon...

At the very first minute it is there, the symbol of a depraved youth who won’t listen anymore, a symbol of the emerging subculture of the 1960s and to this day a biker symbol, the Iron Cross. Only Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister wore it better, as right now as it’s just dangling around Peter Fonda's neck ...

THE CURVES ON THE ROAD: BOHEMIAM PARADISE - ČESKI RAJ

Published by CAETHE / THE CURVES at 17 novembre 2017 in Percorsi
*Bohemian Paradise - Česky Ráj* is the name of the country just behind the border, it is almost untouched by tourism, and yet it is so beautiful that one can cry 😭 Behind every corner there is a castle, there are endless curves, even mountains (our Austrian calls it 'high hill'), quirky hamlets, caves to ride in and beer in exact temperature specifications.
