Battistinis, Swiss 500. . . . .

Battistinis, Swiss 500. . . . .

Battistinis survived the Swiss500 miles challenge on June 5 & 6th 2010 and boy oh boy what a wild ride it was!

Now in its 3rd year, the Swiss500 is an endurance motorcycle event, that simply put is like no other event out there! All competitors cover a distance of 500miles (805km) within 24 hours and we are proud as hell to be the only custom steeds on the list and are even prouder to say that we made it all the way!

680 sore bum miles later (obviously after a few mis–haps with the maps) we crossed the finish line having successfully completed the amazing challenge!! We want to say a huge huge that’s to everyone who we met along the way and made the event as great as it was! Having been the first English to ever undertake the challenge we rekon we won’t be the last and advise all to sign up for next years epic!!

The custom weapons of choice for this mega ride that we blasted across le route were the following, Battistinis Smooftale, Battistinis Exile Bullfighter, Battistinis Hallucination and Battistinis Exile Hotrod! So to all the dis-believers that say custom bikes can’t be rode and are for show only please go back to your nonsense talk and chit-chat, or better still join us next year!

More photos, stories and videos coming soon!

“This is what its all about!”
