Ian Falloon has enjoyed an involvement with Ducati motorcycles, and bevel twins in particular, for nearly 40 years. In addition to writing several books covering these models, he is an avid restorer with over 20 bevel twin restorations to his credit. He was also fortunate enough to enjoy a close association with the factory and the engineers during the period these bikes were manufactured, providing him with an invaluable insight into their development. Ian lives in Australia with his wife, Miriam, and two sons, Ben and Tim.
'Offers that expert second opinion that we often need when faced with a prospective purchase. Ian has owned every incarnation of Bevel Twin over the last 40 years and has restored more than 30, this at the very least is enough to consider him an expert however his knowledge goes way deeper than that ... goes through the standard checks we should always cover when buying bikes and is a great reminder to take a step back and not let emotions get the better of us. For a small 'pocket book' it also contains a lot of detail around he models and the finer points to consider with each.' Desmophiles
