    Owning A Benelli and Appreciating Why its Special

    Be It A Tornado Tre/RS/LE,Tre-K,CR, or TNT or even One of the Older Benelli Range it became apparent today to me that sometimes you dont know how lucky you can be in what you own - After a small trip out and having seen all the usual gaggle of 2 Wheeled playthings seeing another Benelli was just never going to happen unless through an arranged rideout, Today i rode my fantastic RS and realised i'm a spoilt male having a real headturner and when my next upgrade happens i'll be more spoilt but until that happens should look at how other bikers look on in envy . Pleasure can take many forms (yes i know usually of a sexual nature ) but having a Benelli be it any of the above shows we've reached a high and it takes others to tell you in no uncertain terms that were very lucky . Happy Ride Outs To All Fellow Benelli Guys

    my god, thats quite poetic, i thought Wordsworth was long dead
    you are so right though. I have a mate that truly hates my bike, he rides a sh*t R6 (BADLY) every time we all go out & i park my baby it always gets all the attention, i just look at him & grin.

    Yep very true. I went on a ride with a couple of lads last year, one of who was on a homologation special Ducati 748. We parked up and he was mortified cos mine was the one getting all the attention over his "common as muck" Ducati Oh and that was only the standard Tre! Wait til he sees the LE effect this year

    Blimey Angus, that is deep. But I do happen to agree with the sentiments, never a truer word said. I guess we are lucky buggers to have what we have. I thought when I sold the old Ducati I would really miss her, but the big red RS filling the space in the shed is even more exotic and alluring. Although I did spend a few hours in the shed making an alloy rear mudguard stabiliser for the old Guzzi (at least it's italian).
    Ciao, Fraser
    Possiblt Adios all as we're onto a nice rioja now!

    Benelli grin factor

    Took mine out for a spin yesterday. I was taking it easy, when a Beemer X5 sped past me with a young lad, both hands on the window, gorping at the bike, Jeez did that make my day. His dad must have said something like my God theres a Benelli, I have only read about them in mags.

    Same experience about Ducatis. Was out with my boss for a spin to the biking Mecca of Helmesley last year. His 749, with full "Termi" carbon fibre conversion and my totally standard Nelli parked next to it, but mine got all the attention.
    If it ain't broke, it soon will be.

    Lloyd and myself had a nice little ride out on friday,the LE and RS were photoed by a couple of lads when we stopped at rye. Here are a couple of pics I took. One of the LE and RS in the evening sun at Hastings and one of Lloyd enjoying the largest ice lolly he could find !
