I just got my '93 SS back today. A couple of months ago it snapped a head stud, and while it was down I found a set of the Marvic Superlight wheels, and had them restored. Added a new carbon front fender. Here she is:

My db4

I had dreamed of owning a Bimota since I was a kid in the late 70's. As much for the beautiful way they are hand crafted as for the performance they offer. I bought this 2001 db4 about two years ago after many years of riding all manner of Japanese sport bikes. I still have quite a few Japanese sport bikes, and their performance can be very impressive. But the Bimota represents a level of craftsmanship that sets it apart, and it seems to have a soul that talks to you, that urges you along as you hustle down a twisty road. Besides being a rolling piece of art, it's really a great motorcycle, and I thoroughly enjoy riding it.







Can you tell I'm very fond of this motorcycle?

Simply lovely!! I too have wanted a Bimota in my collection. They are excedingly rare in Canada, never imported, and only allowed in when they turn 15 yrs old.
My Bimota of choice, the KB2. If there are any out there, please direct me to it!!

Great thread.

My first italian desire, after Claudia Cardinale, was a Le Mans. I was 13 or so and it was waaayy beyond reach.

My first Italian was a Moto Morini 350 Strada that I bought from a collector back in the mid 90's. No pics, and sold before a divorce. Nice bike, something like this:



I currently have this. I do like the air cooled lump:

The current project: A crashed 2000 m900 picked up cheap. My GF learned to ride on my m900 (after the msf course) as we couldn't afford a second bike. She has no interest in any other bike now and this was the cheapest way to get her a monster......... or so I thought.

Hey Steve,

Saw your posts over on the Harley Bashing thread. I like the tone of this thread much better, and the subject matter is certainly more appealing.

+1 on the DB4.

I saw this bike when it came up for sale locally. Wish I could have gotten her. What a beauty!
