To quote my mom, "I don't wanna hear about it!"

it it has a dry clutch, and it sounds like loose change at idle.  It also has Termignoni carbon fiber & titanium track exhaust and a corresponding computer, so the clutch is barely heard over the howl  under acceleration and the popping and burbling as I decelerate on trailing throttle. The hbest analogy is a friends new z06, a supercharged 650 hp corvette with a "track mode" for the power train computer that opens the exhaust. The power is nsane, "way too fast" is always an immediate possibility , and everyone within 50 yards can hear that this is the case. I normally prefer stock exhaust, because my favorite fun is the kind nobody else knows I'm having. But this sort of adds to the fun for me (I apologize to the rest of you .)

my my son rides a 916, the original version of this bike. I have been behind him (of course, it's not likely I'd  be ahead of him!) and the sound is pretty mib benign from ra few feet back at speed.  We will switch next month and I'll see how bad it is from behind.

I love that stuff; so easy to work with. This weekend there will be caulking, scraping and priming. We're planning on hiring someone to paint the house in the spring, so I'll leave the finish coating for that project. We're discussing painting a sugar skull on the door...

It's not new, exactly - it's old enough to be a bar mitzvah.  But it's new to me, and I am pleased to finally own a motor vehicle built during this actual century, if not this actual decade. 

I have wanted one of these since the original version came out in 1994.  All motorcycles are fun, sure, but these are fun in the exact way, and to the same extent, that you would imagine just from looking at them.    Like a 2-wheeled Ferrari, these are brimming with flair and passion and a cantankerous kind of speed that will take you a lifetime to learn to properly wield.  Riding it is like making your own parade wherever you go, complete with a sense of noisy occasion, and it seems like it should trail a banner behind it that says "WELCOME RACE FANS" in Italian.

The weather being perfect this week in the South, I rode it to Birmingham with plans to leave early Thursday afternoon and go home the long way, through the Talladega National Forest.

Those big twins sound wonderful. Is that a dry clutch? Love that "jangle, jangle, jangle.. GO!" they do.
