Ran out to get some soda yesterday (already had beer!) and fuel up as well and the guy next to me says "Riding today has got to be wet and miserable!" (it was a practically 53 even if it was raining) and fingering my 3/4 lenght jacket I said it was nothing compared to a 'bad' day and noted that with the right gear it's not bad at all. He asked what my bike (debadged red 08) was and said it looked like an older ducati and I told him what she was and how fun she is and how the upright riding position is loved by us middle-aged and up riders and how great her gas mileage can be.....it'd been a while since someone's asked. He said she looked good. Good times.
Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!
