I think we need to set up our own religion based at the top of the hill opposite overlooking Lake Como.

We could build our own ‘monastery’ and dedicate it to the God of cool motorbikes. One of each.

It would be run by fit Italian sun-tanned babes who would pamper to our every sordid whim and keep us plied with beer and the very best food.

The hill also has a cable car down into the village below so nights on the town would not need any driving or riding.

Can you tell I am fully relaxed with very little to think about? :D

Trying to draw up a manifesto with our mix of political views would be a tad difficult.

Doubt anyone would bothered by politics :D

So everyone can choose two bikes. You can not duplicate some one else choice as all bikes will be available to all followers of the faith.

Mine would be a Ducati Streetfighter and my 853 for when we do a trackday at any of Misano, Imola or Mugello none of which are very far away.

Not sure about my second. I might go down the practical, route, something you could use everyday but still have a riot on. Probably a 1290 SuperdukeGT.

There was one of these for sale on facebook last week, £16,500, number 81 of 300 I think it was.

As for m choices of Bikes I think we should add in a HP Race for trackdays and who doesn't love a fully carbon fibre headbanger and then as Kwacky a more sensible useable option but im not sure on that yet.

Okay Keep the 765 Daytona but replace the SDGT with the Tiger 800 with both road and off-road wheels and tyres 8)

Er.....if this motorcycle monastical Mecca needs a cable car to get to it, where would you keep the bikes? Down in the town below where a bunch of Martini-saturated Eye-Ties could get at them??

I don't think so.

Nah, since you’re licenced to carry and the only one apparently on the forum that’s been shot, you are most qualified to stand guard.

Meanwhile the rest of us will entertain the tanned babes (devil)
