So while Sideout was looking for ugly and boring but functional V Strom, I was occupied with the idea that I need new bike. It has been almost a tradition for be to update my stable once a year, and my last bike purchase was done approximately 12 months ago. Combine it with the fact that my wife got nice Tiffany ring for our wedding and I settled for $40 special, I knew I was able to to get something special.
Last week Sideout sent me an e-mail: check out this dealer, he is selling out all his bikes. Of course it contained a link. The second I clicked on it, I knew this was the bike I wanted. Not needed, but wanted. Logic doesn’t prevail in this case. Sometimes you just have to say: “fuck it!”
So it’s sexy. It’s beautiful. It’s charming. It sounds great. It’s Italian. It’s pretty unique, I haven’t seen one on the street yet, and I just came back from Laguna Seca Moto GP weekend with about 50K bikes attending. I will not spoil the surprise but everything you need to know is in the title.
We are flying to Memphis in less than 10 days to pick up 3 of these beauties. That is right, we are riding 3 exotic hand built Italian bikes across the USA on Route 66. Three friends living the dream and not listening to common sense. I think it’s a nice way to break in new engines and bond our friendship. So what are the bikes?
