Gotta love the Italians!

That sound!

Love the sound of an F355, but oh my, the sound of a V-Twin really gets the juices flowing!

You don't have to tell me, I spent a few hours this weekend following a Dorsoduro through the hills.

Last time we rode, we were on my turf (both locale and terrain), and I didn't get to hear as much throttle being applied. But this time, we were on pavement and that sound is just fantastic.

Hey MV,

I may be riding back from LA this weekend on a new (to me) motorcycle. If the stars and moon align, would you have time to meet up? I'll let you take the new beastie for a ride.

We might be able to make that work. What does your schedule/route look like? The cold snap seems to be letting up, so most of the good foothill roads should be frost/ice free. We just did the 49 last weekend, and that was nice.

Funny, after three and a half years on twins, I'm ready for something with more cylinders.
