... road. As they roar off down the road one gleaming MultiStrada remains silent. At least ours starts, you funny *******!
As we headed off yet another string of Ducatis come howling down the road towards us, absolutely tearing up the tarmac with their backside sized rear tyres and deafening the countryside with howling Termignoni exhaust systems. Very cool.
