I've been perfectly happy slamming' The Mighty 950 across the desert for the last 3 and a half years. Incredible Motorcycle! But that all changed a few months ago and my riding buddies wanted to know...WHY? It all started when this guy (Beta Mike) lent me his '08 Beta 450 for a day. After that day I couldn't wait to get one. So I started hanging out at the local Beta shop. Drooling on the bikes. Until the day finally came! This Italian beauty is MINE! Yesterday was our first real ride together. It went very well. WHYNOWTHEN and Buck Moberly joined Beta Mike & I. Not the best choice of riders if you want to break-in your new motor slowly. So with only 35miles of break-in riding....it was time for full on. Beta Mike WHYNOWTHEN and Buck Moberly. It was a short 40 mile loop, but it was good stuff. WHYNOWTHEN liked this drop so much he went back up to do it again. My Beta performed even better than my already high expectations. I think we are going to have a great time together. Goodbye old friend. I'll never forget you.
