Sell the Duc!?!?!? Ha! Never!!! Seriously I love that bike - what a blast to ride.

There was a guy who was trying to make a basic Ducati service computer that would perform basic DDS functions but nothing I have seen yet, but you better believe as soon as there is one I'll get it.

Hope the ride was good today guys and sorry about the ticket Beema... Bummer man.

I was actually trying to be good but with the crosswinds and up and down of the Tarmac where I got nailed, it was tough to regulate my speed at all times. Oh well.

Beema Killa!

Good thing we weren't clocked earlier. Too bad a crappy ending to a fun day. Fun having a new guy in our band of merry men. New blood. More chuckles. More dust. Less wind would have been nice though. Stay tuned for more knuckle dragging twisties!

Got to try heated gear today.

Didn't get a picture though. Went to Big Hill Springs provincial park and screwed around on the side roads there and back. The gloves on half heat were warm enough, got hotter the faster I rode. Now I know bundled up with heated stiuff at just above zero is okay for riding.

Toes were starting to get cold by the time I got home.

Felt good to get out again.

Red Wing hunting boots with 900 or 1200 thin-sulate in them. Warm feet makes a happy biker !!!

1800 is to much, so don't got them that thick.

Nice lid. Love mine too.(even have the same lens) Logged a bunch of time last week with some fellas from here. 2 of which rode doppelgängers of your bike.
This has been a great February.

Thanks, I will check those out. I had motocross boots on with thin socks. Would be good to look into some other riding footwear for pavement riding.

I won't ride in any footwear that has laces.

I've seen some nasty wounds from riding without proper boots. I agree with above. Street or dirt, you should have proper protection. Feet, hands (i'm guilty of motox gloves) and obviously head. I think those are the big three, but AYGATT, or whatever it is.

I have friends that are happy they can walk. They admit it wouldn't have been an issue if proper gear was worn.
