Ciao, Max

Yikes. No updates here for awhile . . . What better way to kick this neglected blog thing back to life than with a somewhat tardy acknowledgement of Max Biaggi's retirement from racing motorcycles. I only witnessed the man ride once--earlier this year, in fact--but was always a fan of his sublimely smooth and economical riding style, paired as it was with his mercurial personality and . . . ah, assertive competitive instincts. A fan I was, even if I could hardly fault the occasional rider straining to get his hands around Max's neck. So. Cheers, to a racer.
