So she continues ďwhy donít you buy that new V4 Pani you told me about?Ē Getting deeper.
She has me pull out the iPad and sits beside me and search the web. She settles on the Special Edition or something like that that has tri color panels. Anyway Iím thinking itís getting tougher to ride as I get older (hip joints mostly) and I can kill myself just as easy with the 999 and itís paid for already. Besides, the younger guns that have been riding with me for the last 10 to 15 years are starting to smoke me a little. Yep, their balls are getting larger!
I guess she may have thought about it some after me having a heart attack and quintouple bypass surgery last winter.
I thanked her for the thought one day and assured her I didnít need another bike but I still hadnít had my dream car yet.
So now I have my Audi S8

Salutations, everyone! I'm 40 years-old and just purchased an '06 999 Biposto this past Friday. Pretty much took it straight to the dealer to have all the belts, fluids, and rear tire replaced. Also had the suspension set-up for 190lbs. Can't wait to see what she can do!
