This is our mate Steve's Grand Canyon. It used to be his, then it belonged to our other friend, Captain Simo (who raced it at Dirt Quake 1), now it's back with Steve again (this goes on a lot between Steve and Simo). the Ducati-powered Cagiva had more makeovers than David Bowie. This is the story of its life - in pictures - starting now scrolling back to the dawn of time.
