Kevin Davis of Moto Corsa(Portland, OR) knew the previous owner of Moto Europa...they are pretty tight in Ducati dealership circles....he knew that 'ME' had problems torwards the end...the guys from the shop opened a new place in the East End called Richmond Superbike they are pretty cool to deal with but.........they seem to have a full retail pricing strategy ...they do offer full Dynojet tuning capability and experienced techs...but for every day stuff like tire changes and accessories I tend to shy away...check 'em out maybe they just don't like Orange

Hey. I have one of those. "Gunfighter and lady"? It looks really cool, like a solo saddle folded down?

It was on my bike when I got it. I prefer a late model stocker, though. Lighter, too.

Add another....

I'm just wondering if your in-laws will show up. I think they have come by the last two times I've been to your place.
