Hey MC tool, :thumbup:

Bruno de Prato is Italian (Milan), who studied Engineering at the University of South Carolina - Colombia and did service in the US army, worked (3 years) for Ducati in Borgo Panigale for Dr. T., is motorcycle journalist for Cycle World since 1980.
Apart from this, Bruno was a good friend of Massimo Tamburini.
So biased? .... probably.
But also an experienced motorcycle professional who has ridden de Paso a lot (incl. the prototype).
So I'm happy to share this article with all of you! :beer:
