shhhh... between you and me Mark (and everyone else on this forum...) My Tre is not a must sell. My feeling is neutral on keeping the Tre... it could stay or it could go... and that's what's bothering me.
... was having a talk with a trusted riding buddy of mine about riding... seems like we still got a little more way to go before we hop on an exotic, all things considered (for us anyway) the Japanese bikes do provide a bit more in the riding sensation department. It's not to say that I don't covet those Italian beauties and their innovative design (i.e.: the Bimota's chassis or the Tre's yellow fans.) I mean, in the recent years all we see in motogp have been Yamaha, Honda, and Suzuki... (and I am very excited to see Ducati and Kawasaki doing well.)
Well... thanks for reading my long-winded spill here... I love the fact that everyone here is so passionate about their TNTs and TREs. But I can't honestly say that about my relationship with my TRE. Sigh. Have a ride on the new R6, or the GSX-R 750. Or even a slightly different genre, the YZF450. Personally, those rides make me a lot happier... thus my contemlation in keeping my TRE. Again, please, this is just my personal opinion... I understand there are very talented riders here that's making very good use of their Benellies.
Mark, when you come down to LA (I must apologize, although I love the SF bay area, it'd be very difficult for me to come up any time soon cuz I've got two wee ones) and I still have my Tre (most likely I would) we will DEFINITELY go for a ride!!
