    new addition to the garage

    Dad picked this up second hand, i love it. 2004 996 GT3. Whiteballz got a ride in it, and in one shot you can see the ducati bike we're restoring (it hadn't been registerd since 1982 lol)
    it's nice to see dad finally getting some results for his hard work.

    it's a ducati 500 desmo... so far i've cleaned it thoroughly, replaced all fluids, battery, and looking for brakes. It will be then sold seeing as i don't know how to ride a motorbike

    I was so puzzled with the bike that I forgot to congratulate you on the car.
    That must have been a nice buy then. Lucky you.

    Don't do that. You'll probably regret it later. That is a very valuable bike. If you don't know how to ride it but are interested in bikes, buy another one to practice and then use the Ducati once in a while just to keep it. That kind of bike in that kind of condition is a real treasure. Even more "exotic" than the pretty GT3. Think better before you sell it and, if you do, make sure you make reall good money with it. If you lived closer and if it was in a good occasion for me, I'd sure make an offer.

    i don't really know much about bikes but since it was sitting there collecting dust i bought it i hope to use my uncle's bike expertise to restore it. as for riding it i probably won't myself. i got it started for the first time since 1982 a few days ago

    OMG a gt3...that's the stuff dreams are made of man. Remember that when your going for long summer rides. Your dad really must be working hard. Enjoy that car man, it takes a lot to deserve that car so my hat is off to you.
