OK - admit. I have become a Bimotaholic .....

Found a Tesi 3D Naked I just could not resist .... need a bigger garage ....
Wife tells me to seek therapy - guess this is not the forum to search for that kind of help .... had my eyes on a DB5R this summer, but decided to let that one go (@2bims - many thanks for your initiated advice there ....)

Anonymous Bimotaholics .... new business idea?

The Tesi, what a superb machine... for all of us, probably the ultimate Bimota and the bike that will always make Bimota as a manufacturer stand out a mile from the rest of the bunch. No-one else dared go there with such a focussed design. (The Yamaha GTS 1000 was a poor imitation.)
Well Piso, if you're gonna feed the addiction you may as well go for the purest shit you can find. Don't worry, we'll take care of you.

So - my new Italian mistress finally arrived. She spent her virgin years in Germany. Have some import bureaucracy to take care of now. Beautiful beyond words .... Cannot have the bike in the garage - would be a shame. Negotiating with my Mrs to place the bike in the living room - she just slowly shakes her head in silence and look strangely at me. Not sure how to interpret that respons .... it could be an odd way to give approval...

If its the "2D"...you'll have to check if theres any gas in the front and rear shocks....and also maybe renew the coin sized battery in what is a "cycle" computer for the speedo/odometer....we just need pictures now........

How to post photos on this forum is a mystery to almost all of us Piso... With other forums it's done in a couple of clicks without leaving the site, but here we uphold the Bimota tradition and make everything MUCH more complicated. One day, perhaps, admin will make it simple for us (hint, hint).

We did used to be able to load on the forum but I think the fact that everything is not free any more means that the host supplier for the site will not allow that unless paid for. ( Admin does all the hosting /maintenance FOC)

So we did use photobucket but they now charge , now I think most people are using Imgur these days.
Sign up to an account, create a folder ,upload pictures you want on forum, get the hyper link from RHS of screen ( one for forum hosting , I think large thumbnail is best) , paste link in forum, preview test and :-

I don't mean to criticise admin - I appreciate the work of anyone who puts effort into running this forum for us. Thank you admin!
At the same time it's a pity because most of us want to spend LESS time faffing about on computers and I'm sure we all have millions of photos we'd like to share/bore you with. It would be a massive improvement to the site and personally I wouldn't mind paying a small subscription to make it possible.
