Good on you @petermack09 !!!
I've been looking on Craigslist again for a bike. Made the decision to not ride any longer due to cellphone using morons, but right now, a ride sure sounds good! Ride safe :)

Do it Butte,,ive been riding since my early teens,50 years ago & im convinced it keeps me going mentally.Its a great hobby and feels great to put on the gear and be a kid again.only problem in Scotland is the weather ,I only manage to get a couple of hundred miles in each year,,so much for global warming,,,bring it on :)

Nice Fizzer.

My brother-in-law back home nearly bought one of those a year or two back, a black one in mint condition. In the end he bought a new boat. Still wants one though the last I spoke to him about it.
Good ones are really hard to find. I spent three months flying around the country looking at “perfect” examples and they went from unsafe-to-drive (really, I didn’t) to the one I purchased (from a family that started purchasing them since the early 1950’s). It’s the nicest one my mechanic has seen (one of his clients has six of them), so I feel pretty good about my purchase. Like the Morini above, I can’t recommend them highly enough. They're just plain fun.

The one my brother-in-law was looking at had less than 20k km on the clock and in absolutely mint condition. He sent me photos and the leather was unbelievable. It had won a few trophies at car shows. I think it was almost in too good condition for him. In the end he was after a new boat and splashed his readies out on that.

But he told me he still wants one for a weekend car. He's obsessed with speed (he was in the national downhill and Super-G teams back in the day) and has a jet boat, and currently an RS6, and a Porsche GT3.
