It most surely is. BTW, it sounds awesome.

You guys have some awesome bikes.
Thanks for sharing those pics.



My 1st:
1992 Ducati 900SS 1/2 fairing
My favorite looking bike of all time.
Sold it cos I got into racing.

THIS is the one I shouldn't have let get away.



Followed up with a '94 M900.
Fun bike I guess. Sold it before I started dumping farkle bucks into it.



Next came this California EV-T
Bought it on a whim. Had some fun with it.
I just wasn't ready to be a Guzzisto (yet).





Back on a Duc now. 2012 1199 base.
She's at the dealer now getting some trick bits added.
Once it's home, I'll get to snapping some real photos.

Michelin Super Bike school at Kyalami.

First time and very firmly in Class "C" concentrating like mad.

Fantastic fun, even did some scuffing on the sides of the tyres eventually

It now reads 99mi. We had a gorgeous day last week, and I left my wife and new baby girl at the hospital to sneak out for a quick ride. The only thing my wife said was "Well...how was it?" I think she's a keeper :cool:

I REALLY wanted one of these when they first hit the market, but family circumstances at the time required the available funds to go elsewhere. When I was in the market for a new ride in 2010, I decided to seek one out. I found this one belonging to an absolutely meticulous owner (I think he spent more time working on it than riding it) with under 5000 miles on the clock.

Almost better than getting a new one as the previous owner had already sorted out the "quirks" that seemed to come with all Guzzis around the time it was produced during ownership by Aprilia.

1999.5 Aprilia RSV Mille



Particularly with the titanium shotgun exhaust, aural sex. Looking at it was like rolling art. Went like stink, stopped like hitting a wall. Kinda big, and unwieldy for street duty. And like most Aprilias, squat-ola for resale value. Found an enthusiastic buyer from eastern NC and went with a Triumph 675.

But when I look at the pics, it's like an old girlfriend.

Sigh.

This has been under my care for 15 years. I have surprisingly few photos of it. This from a track day in September.

The bike that started my Ducati infatuation. Strangely enough I never did buy an F1 however...
