I love being part of a community and getting in on the epic ride reports before they become widespread. Congrats man!

I may very well be an advhipster...
Thanks, Groomez.

And you might be right....just don't go starting a fixed gear trend with old CB 350s.... :)

Thanks for posting this. The danger with anyone thinking everything just fell in place for me is that they very well might not think that they have any control over the things in their life that seem uncontrollable. I took close to a 50% paycut when I started this job just because it allowed me the kind of freedom that would only eventually lead to me roaming the countryside on my bike. Day one might have started at Newport Beach, but it took years to get there.

By the way great bike, just love it.
I didn't have a license plate on my bike because the bike was brand new and California takes weeks (or months) to issue plates. CA may be the epicenter of technology, but our Dept. of Motor Vehicles is still operating in the 1970s.

I photoshopped out my license plate for two reasons--1) it's ugly and 2) paranoia (it's pretty easy to track down someone's identity and home address with just a plate number). In my latest pictures you'll see that I relocated my license plate and am not longer paranoid. ;)

Don't know what the cops think, it's pretty rare to get pulled over for having a dealer plate. There's nothing we as taxpayers can do about the DMV operating at a glacial pace.

I hope to be there by the end of the year.

On a side note
I bought a Ducati 916 new back in 1996. Still have it in fact.
Back in the mid 90's, it was by far the coolest thing on two wheels (except for maybe a Bimota). Recently, I saw a 916 parked next to a new Ducati like yours and I could not believe how ugly it made the 916 look.
On its own, the 916 is beautiful, but next to your bike, it makes everything seem outdated.
Kind of like........never let your GF or wife stand next to Katherine Heigl or Eva Mendes or you never look at her in the same way

7 figure mark. Nice.

Funny you say that about the 916....inmate I recently stayed with in Whidbey has a 748 and I fell in love with it all over again. Yeah, you can see that it's outdated--the Panigale looks positively alien in comparison, but what a gorgeous looking (and sounding) bike the 916/748 is.

Thank god i found this late and get to catch up on your new journey! what else would i get to enjoy in my mundane life. i should probably be focusing on homework or studying between classes but i'd much rather be reading these amazing RR's. Always been a Ducati fan. All the amazing photos make me want one soooo bad. might take out a little extra on my next student loan for "transportation needs"..hehe. a little of that "fuck it" factor. besides the amazing adventure, a lot of what you said rang true and has me thinking a lot more. so thank you!

"Not all those who wander are lost".

i found it quite fitting.

Thanks, Tanneman--I'm happy to hear that it's out! I still haven't seen a final copy. Hoping I'll get mine in the next week or so--along with the e-version.
