Moment? I don't know where to start.
the thing that always puzzles me: my Ural has a center stand, my V7 does not (will, as soon as it gets warm enough for me to put it on). WTF?
In 2006 I had one of theseMy mate had one of theseWe decided on a one off basis to swap bikes for a jaunt accompanied by the usual briefings that are always exchanged.He said ..“Just jump on mate, there’s nothing I can teach you…”I said…“Make sure you give it plenty of revs because it doesn’t pull down low like the Duke, but once the revs hit 8,000 it just rips.Also, blah blah blah…etc.He tentatively climbed aboard the MV in front of the adoring throng and (relatively) skilfully, fed the revs in and off down the road.“That’s not bad for a first time…”I said as if my opinion was worth having.I then casually strolled over to the 916 with a self assured swagger, swung the leg over Bayliss/Fogarty like and with a skill that can only be gained from 40 years experience, snicked the Ducati into gear and fed the clutch out.The rattling dry clutch stopped rattling and the engine quit stone motherless dead as I promptly stalled it and barely got my foot back down before the beautiful 916 was caught by the assembled gallery.“Have you ridden one of these before, they’re not easy…”A well meaning bystander asked.I cannot remember what I said, but made sure the ride ended somewhere other than where they would be gathered.
I was worried that was going to end up with one of those bikes on its side Huzo.
Many years ago whilst at High School in Florence, Italy some of us would meet up after school at a local bar. The bar was at a busy roundabout junction near one of the old city gates and so people were coming and going all the time, in the summer we would mostly be sitting outside enjoying the weather and, of course some of us would show off, trying to impress the Girls on our bikes.A friend was really good at wheelies, he could wheelie a Vespa around the roundabout sometimes several laps at a time, even in traffic and so, feeling left out I decided to show everyone my wheelie skills. I had a Ducati 250 Scrambler at the time and proceeded to clutch the front up right in front of my 'admirers' but overcooked it and basically went vertical, I slid off the seat and ended up running behind the bike whilst still holding onto the bars in the hope of somehow controlling it but, of course I couldn't and I ended up dropping the bike on it's side and me face down in the road.I certainly didn't impress anyone but I did provide the entertainment that day...
Which one and yes alcohol was involved.
