I couldnt take it anymore - so I went for a ride.

Took some family and friend for a jaunt through San Diego's hills.

You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this, going
flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.

Me too!

Skipped out of work at 230p and was home and on the Tam by 3p. Headed down the highway at ~75

keeping pace with traffic with an occasional opening burst.

Landing at FBF for a season opening new battery and oil change, my good friends there, Eraldo, Vince

Tom, Mike, Steve, Andrea, Kyle, Phil, Robert, Hoak, Kathy and the "new" guy all were welcoming. I

visited all parts of the shop, the bathroom, vending machine and then landed on the leather sofa to do

texting. I did miss Mrs. Ferracci, who was probably in back working the books.

In short order, I was back in my leathers doning my Tamburini helmet on #292 cruising down the

highway without a care in the world except the meteors coming at me in every direction conversing

among themselves.

But let me say this: I LOVE MY TAMBURINI and IT RUNS GREAT!!!!!!!

So the season begins...spring HAS arrived.

The picure was talken up on Mesa Grande. I passed on driving the car. Cars really don't interest me much. I much rather be on my Brutale. Every ride on that bike is a thrill.

Mmm sound as though you have never been driven hard in a Ferrari mate. There IS the same buzz/thrill when driven right, if not more in some cases. Shame you dont live near me, i would change your chain of thought

Hmmmm, some "exotic" cars I have driven in my past include Ferrari Modena, Lambo Countach, Lambo Diablo, Lotus Elise, Lambo Gallardo, Porsche 996 Turbo, Ferrari 550 Maranello, Lancia Integrale Evo, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari 512 BB, Ferrari 265 GTB, Jaguar XKE, Austin Healey, and a couple more. There are some that I really liked, but they are all the vintage cars. I guess I like the more mechanical/un-refined feel. All modern cars feel pretty much the same to me - and frankly I am a bit worried that bikes are heading down the same road. I am starting to like vintage bikes more and more because everyone is soooo different from the next.
