Its been a week and your still pulling the fools in! Good one sir.

ACME Test Pilot, ACME Race Team Primary Rider. NO wins, many, many losses..........Usually due to an anvil or piano crossing my path. Falls from cliffs slow me down a bit too.

Now we need a real AB1 with the RSV4 engine.

...and some posting traffic in this dead Bimota section. Where are Dave and those who used to post more frequently here? Ghost town.

Yeah, I was wondering what ever happened to Dave (DNOVA)? He always did a nice write up on his purchases. I hope everything is ok with the guy.

I'm still alive and breathing if I count for a once more active poster.
I still have my DB2 but haven't been riding it too much. I did put on some new tires earlier this year. I think I'll take it for a ride this weekend.

Speaking of purchases, I just acquired a pair of turn signals intended for a 2nd gen. Monster. The signals came with resistors to go inline, butt they had square connectors that won't work on my Bimota. They do have bullet connectors, though, and the DB5R uses them as well, however they are male on one wire and female on the other. In order to make them work I had to use a double ended connector that I have for my '65 Triumph wiring system. There is something enjoyable about having olde English bits in modern Bimota!
