Just the road between Big Ben and the World Championship: despite 4 technical failures so far, he has been the best. Haga out for three months due to a crash today in race 2 , Ben Spies is gonna roll down to became the King of Superbike after a double winner shot today. Yamaha supremacy, Ducati abdication.

Keep on training , on V2 this time. First time on circuit for it... Emotions not comparable to any other machine despite a certain lack in horses. The motorcycle of my life, once and for ever.......I can feel the Gran Prix spirit calling from deep inside the bike since the "liverpudlian" project made of it.... Reliability on track has been so good for the 40 minutes time running, full tank ( 21 liters) ....70 km ....About 1 liter gasoline per single circuit complete round....MAMMAMIA!!! Let me go to paradise on my knees..... But since this experience has come, RC6 life will never be the same again.....

Heroes of Abbruzzo
After a clutch failure one day before going to circuit one month ago,due to a strong trend of mine in these 2700 km on road, to shift gears with a too soft touch of the handclutch, and since the technical collaborator of Kuba Smrz, Giorgio, has given up white flag with this alien machine, one single people in the world shouda've been able to argue...

... Life is full of bends, they sometimes are beautiful, sometimes they stay between you and another one...in the middle you wide open the gas ( see the right fist spinning up in the picture), and all the power gon blasting....
Here is a curve exit in the Bonara Circuit, Brescia, my 5th brief ever, rising up with the engine power, going flat out full blast.....At the end of this short main straight( 800 meters?) i'll find myself about 195/200 km-h in 4th gear, or if you prefer, in 5th gear softer at 185 km-h, and this changes radically the way i go down right....

From the old familiar faces and
Their old familiar ways
To the comfort of the strangers
Slipping out before they say
Baby loves to run .....

let it go
in your mind
or in your soul
could be the answer...
how long to sing this song
sun is too late
sun over me
...this is a concept of .... VOID

MILLONA NCR SBKORSE
Fabrizio is the owner of this special Millona NCR, challenging in the Desmo Challenge and Italian Championship Supertwins. I have had a chat with him just to achieve the basic informations about a very normal people needs to think about to compete in a trophy challenge...
For a sort of coincidence, i was told this special bike has been invited from Pepo in Madrid to compete in Desafio Twins and whatsover in Spain to run there, but Fabrizio refused to comply comparing this machine to the RAD fleet, so ....what to say... great cycle, lucky Fabrizio all around italians twins trophies.... byebye everyone.

Coming back home from a 2000 km journey due to my job, i've found a very good surprise in my p.o. box today.... a gift from Pepo from Madrid...my face is not the best goodfellow one found around, but i am seriously thinking of... :
0 Have u got fire?
1 Is there around here in Italy a RAD bike challenging in Twin Trophies...?
2 How much time will Pepo take to arrange a 1098 or a 1198 powered RAD bike...?
3 ... TSE engine, RAD design... 170 bhp, 150 kilos...settings ( seat height, distance between axles, swing lenght...ecc...ecc...) on demand...? RAD RC6....?? What kind of Hell.... Omissis, Omissis....!!!
I am tasting so far, i am going through what i got, but everything is spinnin around in my head even if i go to my bikes with my mind...nothing impossible, nothing excluded ... cause life is always in transition, and i am still looking for what i haven't found on two wheels...
2 days to sunday 7th of june test on track, but who knows me, knows my mind never stops. The games go on... against all odds... ooppss...here in italy is the Election Day....what a pity...!!!
Tomorrow i am gonna go to meeting a new friend of mine testing his Millona NCR for the 2009 Ducati Desmo Challenge onward, so....
You Vote well, You Vote for Intergalactic Party.... !!!
