Beautiful Tri and great guy...

Last week I flew to Virginia for work and figured since I was in the area I would try and meet up with a fellow Tri owner and member of this forum.

So, when i got to town I contacted our own Gunny Fitz and was able to meet up with him Sat. and see all the beautiful work that he's done on his Tri in person. Pictures do not do it justice!

He just finished putting on a new black triple clamp and then we hung out , shot the shit, installed a new BiTurbo steering damper, and custom painted front CF fender. Man does the paint by Sean at CCR look SWEET! It's a work of art that you gotta see in person to get the full visual effect of the fading and transparent green, gold, and Ducati logo. Duc1199 also showed up and hung out and helped.

I think it's great that the forum brings people together from all over. I have been able to meet some good people from this forum at home and here in Virginia. and because of this I was able to get a great hookup from Bellissimoto by going thru Gunny and it was good to see and thank him in person for all the help he has given me with parts and advice for my Tri. But it's not about the hook ups or discounts, for me it's about the comradery.

At the end of the day Gunny is great guy with a big heart who is willing to help anyone who asks. I even got to meet Mrs. Gunny and she was way cool too!

Thanks Gunny! Beautiful Tri bro!

Many many thanks Flo. I agree its cool to meet up with members from here whom you've gone back and forth with for yrs. I'd love to meet a few more face to face and shake their hands as well.

The pro photos of the tri will be taken soon and put up for all. Been trying to tell people for yrs about how awesome Sean's work truly is, and glad you got to see it in person!
Thx for the kind words, Mrs Gunny thanks you too! Lol
Thanks from Twistedracer
