I like elephants. I think most people appreciate these unhurried pachyderms. It is said that they can remember your face as well as how you treated them decades later so beware not to mess with Dumbo. Maybe you’ve encountered some unfortunate specimens of the species in a zoo or even a circus, but I bet you were in awe every time you saw one. At least, I’ve never heard someone saying: 'I don’t like elephants'. Snakes, spiders, goats or poodles; yes! But an Elephant? Come on!
Pepo Rosell from Spanish workshop XTR Pepo seems to like elephants as well, since his last project is based on a 1986 Cagiva Elefant 350. Pepo turned the Italian trail bike with a Ducati twin engine to a nifty little Street Tracker named Chico Malo.
