And Ducati is to be bought by Audi (((
Maybe, but I don't know if that's bad.

Of course, maybe the Castiglioni family could buy it again!

It could be good because Vw has a huge network worldwide,
but it could be that Vw wanted a motorbyke brand only to
counter BMW, we'll see.
Giovanni Castiglioni died a few months ago
He was the Ca(stiglioni) Gi(ovanni) of CAGIVA,
Va stands for Varese, maybe you knew this.
A Cagiva Cocis 50 was my first 2 wheels!
His son is now in charge of Augusta but I don't
know if he has the same charisma of his father.

Actually, it was Claudio who died recently, Giovanni was their father and started the company in the '50s.

Claudio's son is also named Giovanni.

Re: Motorcycle ride 18th March

That's the season officially opened. Good little ride out, cooler towards the end, but still fun. Couple of pics below.

Re: Motorcycle ride 18th March

Hi Silvano

You're welcome to join us, more the merrier. Just keep an eye on the social forum, as I post the next date for a ride in there, or on Facebook, we have a group page, EF swiss bikers :-)
