Default Today's lunch ride. The Hide Out

San Diego is a bitter 75 degrees this winter. I thought I would take the GT1000 out for a 150 mile battery charge.

I rolled up highway 78 through Ramona and then north via Santa Isabel and the Mesa Grande Indian reservation.



I stopped at a popular location on weekends to snap this photo. I was the only bike around as it is closed midweek.



I finished with a nice lunch at the Lake Henshaw cafe and motored home.

Default Pretty Rough

It's Hell riding here. What were you thinking riding in weather like this? Are you trying to kill yourself? My God man!

Tomorrow will be 44 and sunny here in tropical Maine. Gonna take the Sporty out to circulate the Sta-Bil and top off the tank before I pull the battery. Hope the wind doesn't get up my skirt.

Maybe you could make a run to the Mac store and pick up some new make up. That would be a nice ride.

How many miles on the Six now, Buzzly?

I think you should chop that thing, or at least cut it down to a slick naked bike. Lose the fairing, all that excess bodywork and "features." Make a man's bike out of it.

The six is just about to tick over 2000 miles.

Should I put all the extra stuff I strip off of the six onto the Ducati?

Make a Ducati GT1000L?

No, if you add German parts to an Italian bike it'll turn into the nearest Triumph dealer and beg to be traded in. I went on a breakfast ride in a balmy 45 degrees and sunny, then went to watch the annual Polarbear leap off the bridge in Ollala. No, I did not participate, jumping off a bridge into 28 degree salt water doesn't seem like that good an idea even if it is New Years day tradition..
