a spirited ride today
so i called mrs goona and asked very nicely if i could take her 599 for a twist today. "of course, be friendly and come home safe" she said. so i called a buddy and he came down and rode my 02 919 (cos a naked girl shouldnt be seen running the streets alone). anyways, off we go. the 599 has done a couple of little jaunts out, but due to work constraints she has only clocked 40 or so miles. that bike.....well, its a frekin hoot. blasts along, nimble, raring to go. winds out and jaunts along at a real nice clip 6k @ 85 (or so im told)we knocked out a hundred or so miles. clear blue skys, appx 60, light traffic and gone. shame about the exchange rate that it couldnt be brought from italy in larger numbers. never ceases to amaze me that people dont see these 2 fantastic bikes for what they are. were off today, for the first mrs long ride. i may pack a toothbrush cos i know me and mine and i'll wager she wont to head home anytime soon. i wanna import a new pair of CB from the uk. i'm getting my dad on the case. happy trails kids. sorry for the long winded post.
