As tomorrow is Father's Day (at least here and in Italy), my older daughter finally remembered to bring me home a dealer plate so I can ride my 999R tomorrow!

Temperatures around 20C/68F!

P.S. I have it off the road until April to save on insurance and taxes, as I have 4 other bikes anyway.

I was in Italy in 2004 and loved it. I bet the country roads are great riding. I toured the Duc factory and called my dealer from the factory and ordered a 05 999R. A great trip I must say.

Well, today was perfect weather, close to 70F. No traffic, since it was a holiday. The bike ran great, and the roads were mostly pretty clean. Did a couple quick burst on the highway so I could use the top three gears, as the local roads are mainly 1-2 gear stuff, third if I want to loaf the motor, though certain sections are first gear only and just use the rev range (even with 14/39 gearing, first is still good for 60 MPH).
