  1. Keep up the good work sir! Very impressive. It must be nice to have the time to indulge in the setup, prep and riding that most of us only wish we had.... make the most of it..... you sound like you are having a fantastic adventure with this.

    You only live once.....

    Will have to send ducati dad as my envoy!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1
  6. Valencia is top ! Enjoy .. Will hug dad for ya :)
     
  7. Another great write up.... am very glad to see you've progressed in the way you'd hoped. Good job.

    Much envy given that currently I am bikeless, let alone involved in a project like this.

    Enjoy,
    Ian

  8. Eau Rouge looks like an amazing bit of tarmac to ride
     
  9. spa 4 2014 radillon.jpg :Depressed:

    it s the way down thats the scary bit... 2/3/4/5/6... the 2:30 crowd hit rev limiter in 6 ... its not known much but 10 yards before going up is as fast as anywhere else on that track..

    On top it looks all benign. the you rush down and that hill rolls higher and higher and higher... is a big uphill cork-screw at high speed... and hard to take constantly fast..
    the end of that righthand cub is where you try to tip the bike over...

    top pic should/could be 230kph...

  16. Bike arrives 14th and dealership doing a "reveal" party on the 16th for the Desmo owners club - albeit, no-one will know it's mine - good to be in the back ground - there are too many flashy pants out here!
