First name : Jean-Louis
First name: Eric
Born on: 28 February 1957
Born on: 26 November 1959
passion for 2 wheels began very early as at 15 years old he did a very long trip,
travelling all around Europe on a 'Mobylette' (moped 49cc). |
The following year, he got his first real motorcycle, a Yamaha 125 AS3, on which he did some long trips again, amongst them a Saharian project, unfortunately stopped in Spain due to a crash against a car. Kawasaki 3 cylinders 2 strokes, Suzuki 750 GT then GSX and GSG1000 came after until what happened to be an eye-opener!: The discovery of the 1000 Laverda triple, then a road test of a 750 SF in 1978. The Laverda virus was catched, the future motorcycles will be Laverda only!
In 2001, he created the Laverdamania website with the purpose to make the marque better known and to bring help and information to the Laverda passionates.
In 2002, Eric became a frequent visitor of Laverdamania and also a faithful friend. Fusion between Laverdamania and Eric's documentary website, Laverdissimo, in 2005 was the ultimate result of this friendship.
for ever, grand amateur of Laverda and above all an immense Laverda documentation
collector. He already owns almost all the documents and objects related to Laverda
(included the agricultural ones!), however he is still searching in meetings,
markets or websites to get the very rare documents he couldn't have yet...
