I dare say that Italians made the most beautiful mechanical objects in the world. They may not be as precise and long lasting as their teutonic neighbors to the north, but the shapes that their hands create are just plain sensual. So, although I have long extinguished my passion for that little red Fiat Spider turbo, I suddenly got my groins moving for this:
A Ducati Monster S4R S Testastretta. This is a far cry from the little 150cc Buddy scooter that I have. But gee, with my body weight, this beauty can break the speed of sound. Talking about body weight, yes, my friend AMS, I may be older and beyond mid life crisis, but I am still thinner than (well, lets not go there, hehehe).
