  1. Monday is the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday. According to Christian, Hebrew and Islamic calendars it is the second day of the week and in the west it is the first day of the working week. its name is derived from the Old and Middle English words meaning 'moon day'.

    but not for me, not today, today is different. today has significant personal meaning and marks a milestone in my personal motorcycling story...

    today we celebrate the coming of Dio del Tuono (God of Thunder), that's right, today I pick up my Tuono.



    I plan on taking delivery at Bikebiz and then zipping off to give a few people a look. will be over to see 69SIM69SIM and SibiSibi a at some stage.

    in the meantime, here's one of my favourite Kiss songs coincidentally called God of Thunder - turn it up loud!

  2. Just keep in mind

    1) New tyres - not scrubbed in
    2) You've had a HD for a while - might not be used to the power

    blah blah blah blah - I'm just jealous.

    Hope you have a blast today. Take lots of pics please

  8. So by now you own your Italian Bella for the whole 10 minutes 43 seconds... How is your heart rate? "Middle-aged" ticker going extra mile today :happy: Did you brush up on your Italian so you could whisper some sweet nothings to her before you ride her? Can't wait for photos of the first sight, first ride, first coffee together :snaphappy::love:(y)

  11. There's the possibility we're not going to hear from chilliman64chilliman64 for the rest of the day. He'll be doing his best to complete the run-in period in one day, glued to the thing. Either that or standing in the garage just staring at the bike for hours on end. I know I would!

  16. You heathen.

    You do not simply 'remove' an MV.

    'Add' an MV, but NEVER EVER 'remove' an MV.
