  2. That bloke in the red top doesn't look like Falappa. :eyes:

    Anyway, that's the least of your problems. While your back was turned, that old hobo was scribbling graffiti on your bike. :mad:

  9. Absolute legend here in Italy, revered... I was only 10 years old in 1988 so I’m not going to say I saw him race but I know how hard he was because my older friend with a couple of Bimotas mentions him about once a month. The real tough guys in wsbk started with him and ended with Troy Bayliss is the general opinion here
