You're welcome to make fun of me when I die. You know, jump up on my casket during the viewing and start urinating while you yell:

"Piss on you for dying now, you beautiful BASTARD! PISS ON YOU!!"

Then as you walk away you can turn to everyone and say:

"He understands. Nobody knew him like me."

What a shame, the 916 was and remains rolling art. I guess him and Enzo can enjoy some nice calamari and Nastro Azzuro while oogeling babes at the big sidewalk cafe in the sky (sniff)...

Always thought the 916 was one of the best looking motorcycles ever made. One of the best sounding too.

I already have a jar of urine ready to pour on Hanoi Jane's grave. You've got a loooong way to go to meet that standard.

I think if I still owned my Brutale, I'd still walk out in the garage to look at it.
