I never thought I would be writing to you regarding some of the content in your fab mag, but, alas, I feel the need to express my feelings to the Top Ten Race Replicas and 1990’s Bike Guide in issue 268. Whilst I wholeheartedly agree on the Rootsy’s first choice, the SP-1, my objection is to the comment, ‘although shall we forget about the stars and stripes version’. I am the very proud owner of one of these iconic bikes and I have had, and will continue to have, endless hours of fun and plenty of admirers along the way. Secondly, I appreciate that the SP-1 may not have won on it’s inaugural season and we all remember the exiting racing it produced in its next year after a few improvements, but this would never have happened if Mr H didn’t take it to Ducati in the first place! Phew, that’s better, don’t mean to sound like a grumpy git, keep up the marvelous work. I have attached some photos of a ‘Stars and Stripes’ paint job to help you change your mind

Opinions are like arseholes, Mick, and you should see what Rootsy considers stylish!
