I miss the Daytona, but glad it went to someone that would ride it. The MZ is nice and unique. Great job on the swap Staton.

I may after today's ride. On LCR it did really well. I'd think I was doing "OK" and note I was doing 2X+10 on most turns!

Very easy to ride quickly and it doesn't feel like it all.

For MSRH, bring the Tuono and sign up for Intermediate. I'll play.

I'm already bringing the 10R for Advanced.

Let me know.

Glad you are OK with it.

The Daytona will be well cared for.

And you think going to a vintage Bimota is the answer?

Slow down there big guy. Them big V-twins shake like the dickens. I got in the habit of checking nuts and bolts every couple three rides, when I first had the ape. You probably just have a loose bolt somewhere. Blue Locktite is your friend. Take off the body panels. Wash the engine (when it's cold) good. Then run the engine till it warms up. You'll spot the leak right quick.

Hey, I'm all for you getting another bike. Just hate to see you do it on a sour note.

Nice score!! Pretty rare bikes here in the States...

Cool to have something different then everyone else...

The right side chain drive is odd for sure...

Congrats on the MZ. Not sure if yours has it or not, but those MZ boys really know how to work steel tube lattice frame.

The voice of reason! You are probably correct! Taking it to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited on Wednesday just to be safe! The vintage Bimota would make me feel better though. I like Tojo's taste in bikes. He has stuff that nobody has!

I'll ask Tankmonkey to get some video of it at MSRH. I'm going to run it in intermediate, and the 10R in advanced.

Where do you find these bikes? I like the angular design, the Austrians copied it with the RC8R.

This one was dumb luck.

The others? When I can't sleep, I look for bikes that I read about at some time or another. I don't sleep a lot.
