My 2003 RC46 VTEC, paintjob ala RC30, next to a Roman Aquaduct on the Nova Carthaginian coastline (more or less where a rather pissed fellow named Hannibal, not so long ago in 218 BC, after seeing his father and brother Hasdrubal fail and perish, went and unloaded 38,000 infantry, 8,000 cavalry, and 37 war elephants, and crossed the Pyrenees, the Alps and many rivers to march ever onward and flip the bird at Rome, like only the possessed could do. Impressive story that one, things would be different now if he'd been successful... but it all ended in a stalemate after several decades of warring and negotiating and battling and so-forth... in other words, longer than the TV series "Days of our Lives").
That. Pic. Is. Awesome.
Interesting history lesson. I'm not that familiar with Hannibal's history except what I saw on the History Channel. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful background.
Your VFR is also stunning. I can tell you put a lot of love into that bike!

Hannibal would have gotten to Rome quicker if he had a VFR instead of a pachyderm.
Although, some have critiqued the VFR for being too heavy, maybe there's a connection there...........
Such a nice paint scheme.
Actually a buddy from Valencia nabbed my rather rashed up and forelorn 2003 lapiz blue VTECker (after a lowside at the racetrack and being forced off by a cage) while I was on holiday in OZ and when I got back I found it all repaired and painted. Thanks Andres!! That's real friendship for ya.
Fabulous: Bike, pic location, and story. Thanks.
