Number 2 has a thread about a pair of R1's and their origin. It made me think about a story behind a pair of mine and didn't want to step on his and say "oh yeah I have one that..." And I hoped the subject merits it's own thread and we get some cool stories. I'll start with a pair of Ducati X Metal Juliet's purchased from the gift shop at the Ducati factory. It has a price sticker at the opposite end so it could be. And I'll raise you a pair of JPM Splices alleged to have been given by JPM to his trainer. Whatcha got?
