Last years Xmas "Tree"....just seems so "passive" now...





So I changed Tack this year with a change of tree and quantity....One small and one large (work in Progress)...






Now...If I only could figure out what I did with all the Italian Tri-color Flags I used at the bike show this year??? did I give them all away?....

I was wondering where the bunting went.....Happier now I know where it is....it saves me searching all over the house/garage for it......I've also lost a rucksack also....blue and silver Moto back pack???....Not worried about the bunting...I presume that I give it away along with other items....but the loss of my back pack that I used to go to Amsterdam with you is at a loss to me....

Hey Steve, now that another of your machines has made it into the house, there must now be another bike sized gap in your garage. Any plans to fill it in the New Year Wink

Not so lame there bhp....as I know youre about 4 floors up in the air....and the bike had to be loaded into your lift to get it up there....

My installation was a short push from the garage and a scaffold plank to get over the front door step....a couple more images........





And the Dining room table is almost set and complete.....

Red/Green for Holly and berries....White for Snow and mistletoe....
Red/white Santa....Green and red for the elves etc etc....
There was a video also...but "imgur" says no videos lasting longer than 30 seconds...Ba...Humbug.....



Cover on other bike ....seeing as its Wintertime...



Placemats all set also.......

Very nice and festive 2bims although I can almost feel a sense of jealousy and envy coming from the direction of your garage!

I have to own up that my lounge is ground level so it was no major effort to move her out of the office and into the lounge Wink

Although that villa has now been sold so she was downgraded at the weekend to a lockup while I refurb the new place.

The new place is a Penthouse Apartment so it will need either (a) a grunt squad and some ramps to take her up two floors or (b) a crane with a team experienced in moving fine arts Wink

I think I need to do a full risk assessment first Smile

Have a great Xmas all Smile

NB - I like that roll in stand you have. My removals guy at the weekend had one to transport her to the lockup.

Looks a potentially better alternative to the rear paddock stand? I should maybe alternate between the two each six months Smile

Yeh...the front wheel "chock" roll in stand was purpose bought for the Db1....as theres no rear swingarm bobbins on that bike....and it has 2 positions so you can correctly adjust it for a 16inch wheel....Although I do now have the alloy pins for solid rear spindle that fit into the rear concentrics to take a standard Bimota packing crate stand.....

Hey 2 bims, do you live alone? That is a VERY Bimota oriented Christmas decor!
I love the db1. I first saw one in Steve Wynn's showroom in about 1985; when I asked nicely and sat on it, it fitted me like a glove - just beautiful. The next time I saw one was at some club races at Darley Moor: I think it was a formula 2 race against all sorts of jap 4 cylinder bikes and the db1 (a Steve Wynn entered bike I think) wiped the floor with them. Those were the days...
Happy Christmas to one and all.
