That's what my husband just told me, he was a big fan.

We watched a programme about him some time ago, he seemed like a lovely man.

The guy on the left is John Surtees, the guy on the right is Giovanni Magni (whom I've bought some special parts from over the past 20 years for my Guzzi), taken last June at Cascina Costa (home of MV Agusta).

(not my photo, Giovanni posted it)
