    Good Eye! I love those dirt roads going into Burke's Garden. I've crashed two of those Arais on the track and I believe in their protection....still ride with one of my crashed ones.:eek1

    You guys have some awesome bikes.
    Thanks for sharing those pics.



    My 1st:
    1992 Ducati 900SS 1/2 fairing
    My favorite looking bike of all time.
    Sold it cos I got into racing.

    THIS is the one I shouldn't have let get away. :cry

    Followed up with a '94 M900.
    Fun bike I guess. Sold it before I started dumping farkle bucks into it.

    Next came this California EV-T
    Bought it on a whim. Had some fun with it.
    I just wasn't ready to be a Guzzisto (yet).

    Back on a Duc now. 2012 1199 base.
    She's at the dealer now getting some trick bits added.
    Once it's home, I'll get to snapping some real photos.

    It now reads 99mi. We had a gorgeous day last week, and I left my wife and new baby girl at the hospital to sneak out for a quick ride. The only thing my wife said was "Well...how was it?" I think she's a keeper :cool:

    Love this bike!

    WOW!

    I notice the temp tags. I had not seen this new V7.

    Made this former LeMans owner forget all about the MGS for a sec.
