C'mon Mugello. Let's do this.
Feels like I lost my best friend this weekend. My constant companion, through my walks in Barcelona, my flights around the world, my daily existence, ceased to function after I sent it through the washing machine. Naturally, I completely dismantled the unit and hit it with my room mate's hair dryer, but it was to no avail. Adios, iCarus.
I still have all the same music buried in two different computers and various spare hard drives, but putting together a play list like that one will be difficult, and I just wish I'd had more foresight to back it up regularly.
I managed to get out for several hours this past week on my GT Moto, which was a nice change of pace and definitely easier on my knees than running.
It was nice to ride something with big wheels again, rolling through the city along Diagonal, from Diagonal Mar up into the parks at the northern end of the street, past the university.
After my iPod had died, I decided to get a decent meal in before taking off to Italy. I picked an Italian place (for some reason, don't know why), and can you believe it, they put french fries on my pizza! I can understand an egg, but french fries?!?
Oh well, since we're on odd french subjects, how about this amazing Yamaha Dual-Sport I came across a few weeks ago. It's a 500cc two-stroke . . . . . and I'd love to know more about this vehicle, so if any of you have had some experience with one of these beasts, let me know.
Lastly, this wouldn't be a Mugello pumper-upper if I didn't have a A special song to go with it! It's catchy!
See you guys from the trenches with the wrenches --> And I'm off, two of the biggest races of the year, back-to-back, complete with two days of testing after Catalunya. Here's to VR46 pulling out a record breaking 7th win in a row at Mugello . . . unless my guys can somehow get up there in the mix!
