I love this bike but at 57 secs watch the reaction. I thought they broke their necks turning so fast


go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

My 996 was the most painful bike I have ever ridden. And my pulse quickens just thinking about that bike. The sound, the power, the handling, and oh, that rattle. One day Shelly led and showed me the route for the frontage roads to Portillos. When I got home, I had 3 PMs asking if that was us and how sekkci my bike sounded.

The 999 and the 1098 are *much* better ergonomically.

I have seen a Desmo up close but did not sit on it, guess the ergos
are far closer to the 1098 than anything else..... I could own that.


Except for the money thing.....

Bastid. I broke the chain with the bike. It is totalled, I am buying all new gear, and got rid of my personalized plates. I'm taking this year off to get healthy, then shop over the winter. And Steve said he will work with me at a track day.

I found the 996 to be rather comfortable.. Did a handful of 400-500 mile days on it... The 999/749 I couldn't stand the seat.. Maybe did 15 miles on a 749s and really didn't like it at all (side note.. is that thing gerbil powered?)
the 1098/1198/848 I haven't ridden .. but sitting on it reminded me more of the 996 than the 999... maybe it's just me.. + it had been a handful of years between sitting on the 996 and the 1098

the RR is just dead sexy.... I'd probably ride it overly cautious and dump it trying not to dump it

i hate to bump this old ass topic, but...

I saw a Desmosedici yesterday at about 9:30pm at the intersection of Ashland and Webster.

Looked exactly like the picture below, with the "Alice" on the bottom fairing.

I've never heard anything like it before and it made me J in my P.
Has anyone else seen this bike in Chicago?
