LOL. Not quite. Note the use of every control at the same time though

Understandably proud

I have posted this some bike in a number of threads, but it seems to fit here too. Besides, I am justifiably proud, that is my girl in the saddle.

Just an alloy cover for the bean can. With no front engine cover, water could get in there so the owner put the alloy cover on there.
( It's Jim Cray's bike)

For the record, I selected second instead of third as I entered the corner. It may look like I'm backing it in, Motard style, but in fact I'm desperately trying to hang on!

I'd buy it and Agostini's 6-cylinder MV too

grateful to be a sucker and have a BMW.
