good thing he lives in Italy,when I was there I lost 9lbs and trust me I ate more there then I do at home,if he lived in the US where we put all the chemicals in our food (because the goverment is so concerned with our health) all that work he's going through would be wasted after one trip to taco bell or mcdonalds

Italy was great I relly enjoyed my visit there.

good luck on your project

Thanks for mentioning Hayden. Can't wait for pics of the finished product, though I suspect like most of us the project never ends!

For nicky instead, it is fair to mention the champion of the world and then I am an enthusiast of MotoGP, without factory distinction or membership nation. :ride:

Piero, your statement of moto gp loyalty is admirable, and your non bias preferences almost unheard of! I am a fan also but must admit I cheer Nicky on, because of our minority position in moto gp. Also love the superbikes, very intense racing, Troy Bayliss especially :ride: Your mods for 07 are continued on the same bike, yes? I must applaud your methodic and detailed listing of your modifications. :ride: The only mod that I am skeptical of is the addition of the Marchesini wheels, mostly for appearance reasons, though I wonder how they look? :ride:

Hi rebelventurer.

It’s easy to love motogp for me because in europe it is much followed and there are many Italian pilots and bikes, however I generally love the show all the pilots offer.

When I was 15 years old was a fan a certain fast Freddie and I have enjoyed some enterprises of Mamola, Lawson, Rainey and Schwants, what show! Now he touches to us Italians and Spanishes, but hereafter the American pilots will certainly get back.

Also very amusing the superbike! This year there is also my favourite pilot Max Biaggi. :applause:

The next modifications I will always do in the same one, has become by now my definitive toy.

Thanks for the approbation, hope that my modifications can be useful whoever wants to make some lightening modifications on the its bike.

I love the sport bikes and in my head have remained a few names which must be present on my bikes, between these Brembo and Marchesini.

I use my bike only on road, so I need light and rigid wheels, Marchesini wheels are rigid and also light even if he does not seem with the comparison with the originals, my spokes wheels are actually very cheap, with only 32 spokes and behind a very narrow channel, so it is however already light but is also not very competitive.

At the end with the Marchesini I can do without than the inner tubes and this is a big advantage.

Ciao and see you soon Piero
