    I met Paul at the Ducati Revs America Rally in Las Vegas in 2001.He was an invited guest along with Cook Nielson, Paul Smart and others . I got them to sign my T-shirt and Paul was a little shy about it since I didn't immediatly recognise him.
    He did sign the shirt and I'm glad of it.
    I haven't worn the shirt since , it's for the "museum".

    Love this thread. Thanks for posting the Klinzmann MK2. Been looking for a nice shot of that for ages. Here my modded z900 its a great everyday/work bike. Looking forward to hear and see more of the Vetter hacked up frame bike.

    I worked at Racecrafters, and had yellow stickers, but none of my bikes looked that good!

    Some good pics of the MK2 and S1 Racecrafters. When I was looking for pics for my project it seemed that parts of the bikes changed every meeting, suppose it was a case of change to improve. I'd love to see more RC pics if lobsta.

    Thanks for the comments on my bike, cheers
