I bought my first in 1992, a V7 Sport. I fell in love with the way the engine delivers power, the way the sound is so similar to an American V-8, the torque, the flywheel inertia, and the mechanical simplicity of it. In 1993 I bought a 1000 Le Mans Special Edition, one of only 100 produced for America. I decided to sell it in ’99, but 12 years later I saw one for sale locally. I said to myself, “God, this looks a lot like my old one,” but it had different pipes. I decided to buy it anyway. After going through all the receipts that came with it, I noticed the oldest one belonged to the guy I sold my bike to. This was my old bike! It had changed hands five or six times, but I ended up getting it back.
