After a long day of skiing last weekend in WV, my wife demanded to learn to ride the TW I keep at the family cabin out there. Snow on the ground everywhere but she insisted. Full ski gear and all.





Couldn't pry her off the damn thing!

Why would you want to "pry her off"!? Let her ride! She will end up wanting a new bike (or two) and to go for rides...

On Highway 101. We're not as adventurous as most here but do enjoy the rides.

My wife contemplating the interesting exhaust engineering on this 1956 Ceccato 160 Sport and trying to figure out exactly what it was for.



This is the exhaust

I assume it's for adjusting the backpressure? I've read that old racers used to slip their boot back over the exhaust when needed.

Actually it's for in town and out of town racing. The lever near the coil closes the exhaust cap when the racers entered the towns to reduce the noise and then opened it back up when they left the town limits.

You guys look great. I enjoy a ride up the coast just as much as nasty two track.

Tell her you'll do a retake when she feels she looks sexy enough. Looking forward to the next pic.
