Then we set off at full speed on some twisties and we are both happy again!
But as I said, I will definitely be visiting Scotland more times

I don't want to be a clever dick, but I have to correct you because your answer to kinkster is wrong. My bike is a V11 Sport Ballabio and not a V11 Sport Scura. Nice that you like the Rosso Corsa

Swedener screwed with this post 08-29-2012 at 11:49 AM Reason: Non

Sorry i don't watch the handlebar...

I like guzzi, the engine is special and nice to ride. A little heavy, and you must be carefull when you turne the throttle cause the bike go on the left with the torque of the engine...

Had a minor fall on Jun 20th; fault was mine to not having changed the front tire for over 18000+ miles & had to pay for it through dislocated right shoulder. Had quite a fun though; was dragged over 10+ foot after the fall & got up beneath a bus and was laughing instead of checking out anything. I guess the laugh was just because of the protection from riding gears (which is very rare scene in this country )

Anyway, lots of things happened after that; didn't ride for 7 weeks then picked up courage to ride long 1900 miles against the doctor's advice of staying away from riding for 2 months atleast.

Right now, I'm switching between rides & drives. Had an awesome ride last Sunday with friends, we even had a Hayabusa riding along with us. Wanna see the pics?

Wow! Sorry to hear about your accident. Glad you aren't too badly beat up. ... but 'ending up under a bus' sounds like you had a 'close shave' and it could have been a lot worse! .

Good to hear it hasn't put you off riding at all and sure, - feel free to post some of the pics ..or a link.

The 'folded arms' thing has no significance....they were just messing about 'striking a pose' when they saw me jump off the bike to grab a pic at temporary traffic lights.

Cool pics again bubu. 'Track day' sounds good (I have never actually done one). I just hope next year work improves over this year so we can get over to France. It's been a bit 'challenging' this year and at the moment seems to be continuing in the same vein ...... I'm sure there is a light at the end of this 'financial crisis' tunnel ...and fingers crossed that 'the light' isn't actually a train coming the other way! Lol!

Hey Kamchat, I am very grateful for your offer! It is so valuable to have a good contact when you are visiting another country. If you intend to go to Sweden, I will of course help you with anything, if I can.

Quite close; I thought my head would be run over the front wheel & was wondering if my Helmet would withstand; gladly there was no necessity to it

Thanks bubu - that's a very kind offer.....I hope though if I come to France I will be riding there with the bike so if all goes to plan I will have my bike with me. But I will bear it in mind should we end up travelling by car for some reason.

Thanks again.
