Have we seen this before?

Post by randtcastell »

Gentlemen forgive me if I waste bandwidth, but I stumbled upon this today, couldn't find it on this forum's resources, so I wanted to make sure others would know of it. The link is:

Thank you!

Hi randtcastell!

yes, I made a topic about it: "What was so special about the Ducati Paso?" on May 26th 2020 (I did put it in the "Paso 750" forum but for some incomprehensible reason it was moved to "Aiming for the Apex").
You even responded on the item (May 27th 2020). :thumbup:

But you are right it is a very nice article on our Paso 750!

Regards,

Frank

Hi randtcastell,

No problem, it happens to me regularly (that's what you get when you're around 60).
Maybe also because the article has been moved to a corner of the forum that is a part that is hardly visited (again: incomprehensible in my opinion).
How often is something (new) written about our Paso ?!
And again: Bruno de Prato knows what he is talking about as a journalist when it comes to italo motorcycles (Cycle World magazine) and cars (on politics I differ from his view), also ex-Ducati employee and good friend of late Massimo Tamburini (my motorcycle design guru).

Have a nice evening!

I dont agree with his comments about the weber " smoother and more precise throttle response ".....um ,thats what I would have said was its miserable failure . A slow twisty road was a demonstration of carburation flat spots and transmission snatch .
I wish I was young again............Id be heaps smarter than last time
