- yet... if i don't fall in love again for her (it happened and can happen again... expecially now that in this two years i made her "my own")... i was thinking to ride her for a year (warranty) and then sell her for a more tech and powerful ride since at 52 y.o. the time lapses to ride a superbike are shrinking more and more...
- dawned a month ago on me the idea to make a conversion... since i had to rebuild her engine completely... then i choose to maintain her stock for keeping her price value higher overtime and for warranty sake in case of an accident (around here they have a heavy hand on that kind of works)...



that's it
cheers
Daniele
HOHAAA!!!!!

Good Luck with the new engine - Hopefully that means they got any previous issues with it resolved and 100,000 miles are in the future...
