    4/22 Leesburg, VA Southbound Battlefield to westbound 7. Tuono V4

    And a few days before, possibly another Tuono V4. I never got a good look because it never caught up to me and I was in my truck. Westbound Algonkian Pkwy to westbound 7.
    In the garage: '10 RSV4-R x2 '94&95 VFR750F '01&'09 SV650S '04 DR650 '83 DT-80K '07 CBR600RR

    Not an ape motorcycle spotting. Costa Mesa Speedway saw someone wearing an Aprilia Gresini sweatshirt.

    Not much of a crowd, but some excellent racing. Modified handicap 1st place started next race from 30 yard line, 2nd 20yd,.... saw some runs from the 30 at the start to the lead by turn 3.
    Good sidecar action as well.

    Yesterday in Alexandria, VA from the distance I saw what looked like a Shiver with green wheels. Didn't get a picture but the rims looked well painted and maybe even factory from a distance. Anybody seen a Shiver with green wheels from the factory?

    Talk about sightings. I had a guy and his wife follow me home yesterday. I pulled into the driveway and started walking into my garage and I hear a horn honking. Dude saw me go by and followed me home to check out my bike. First time that has ever happened! I guess the siren's wail of the V4 was too much! LOL!

    anybody know who else owns a Silver Futura with side bags in the 757 (Virginia) area? Mother fucker scared the shit out of me. I spotted him in the college park area. I was driving home from the dealership and saw this guy on what I thought was my bike. How many futura's could there be here in the 757? Literally 2 blocks from my house, the futura goes by. I screamed home in the supercharged A6 and found the garage closed and Argento sleeping soundly.

    Just trying to reach out and make a friend.

    Funny! The sight and sound of a V60, like your Futura, is unmistakable! A year ago, after my Futura was stolen, I was at a friends property, underneath a Detroit 8V92TA, when I heard a rocket blaze by on the nearby road. I couldn't wrangle from under the bus in time, but I just knew it was my lost machine!

    Thanks to the San Joaquin County Sheriff, a few weeks later, they located my ride. I'm elated to have her back. And yes, she is now satellite tracked, hehe. She has comms in several bands including S-band, my little Apollo Command Module now.

    August 10 mid day spotted silver Tuono 1100 RR(17-18) socal Palomar/ Lake Henshaw area. I was on an 18 Tuono RF and my buddy was on a 17 Super Duke GT headed toward the back side of Palomar. You were coming from that area. Perfect day for a ride in the mountains.
