PS 1000 LE

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

1. My PS 1000 LE I’ve got to say I love it – with­out the fair­ing low­ers. 2. 750SS 1975 Just beau­ti­ful. The last of the 1100 Mon­sters also ap­pealed to me. Air­cooled en­gines look so good. 3. 998R This is the bike I would most like to own and ride now. And a 999R. Ob­vi­ously one’s a Tam­burini de­sign and one’s Terblanche, but they both look great. 1. Su­per­mono This one has to be first. I was so close to buy­ing one for my son Scott to ride. 2. Troy Bayliss 999 2006 The Xerox bike, in its last year. 3. My old Imola 750SS Pure sim­plic­ity. Mo­togp bikes are great but change too of­ten for me to se­lect a spe­cific one. “I rode for Du­cati im­porter Vic Camp in the mid 1960s, and he put my name for­ward to ride the Imola bike in 1972. Since that day I have main­tained a friendly con­nec­tion with the fac­tory. I spent a few days at the stu­dio in Turin with Pierre Terblanche putting my own in­put into the de­sign of the Paul Smart Replica – a once in a life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. Du­cati are like fam­ily af­ter all th­ese years. I own a 175 Elite but gave my pair of Paul Smart 1000 LES to my chil­dren Paula and Scott.”
