Here, it was somewhere in the higher 20s this morning. Cold is relative, but being able to ride in it makes it kind of acceptable. I'm looking forward to warmer weather nonetheless. Continually using four layers is getting annoying.
The only time I've experienced negative temps, I was in college. I can imagine that a car wouldn't be any fun in negative temps.
Just think, the folks in Fla are starting to consider that soon it is going to get too hot to ride.
We finally had some warm (mid 70s) weather here in Atlanta this past weekend. Got out on Sunday afternoon for a solo ride on the Supersport. Got to love rolling farmland with perfect weather and a torquey V-twin. Good for the soul.
Ohh, don't get me wrong, I miss winter's constant negative temp's, spring's almost constant rain, summers ridiculous, over-the-top heat, fall's pretty colors and then back to snow in late October through April. The climate is changing very quickly, New England had the two worst winters on record last year and this year. My parents, most of their friends and relatives are all seriously contemplating moving to a warmer climate. Its hard on older people because one slip down a driveway, could lead to a broken hip or worse. My grandma passed away because she kept on falling and getting infections, but never took care of them because she didn't know how bad they were. By the time they moved out of town, it was too late, she died not much after.
Weather and climate, shouldn't hinder a persons abilities to do what he/she wants at any given day. Whenever I move to Europe, I'll have to live with poor weather again and learn how to ride in the rain, but having lived here for 6 years, going on 7... I can say I've lived in a place you could go ball's-out crazy in the canyons any day of the week. Plus, California does have some of the best mountain roads in the US, they're gorgeous!
-4 here this morning but at least we're on the back side of winter and I'll be able to haul the bikes out of storage in a couple more weekends. Clean air...miles of great mountain roads and no traffic makes the wait worth it.
I think I’m missing a screw possibly for the oil. Started leaking and smoking from the muffler behind it. Can anybody tell me what this is and if I’m right about there’s a screw missing. And what is it called so I can find and buy one. Thank you
Hello all, One of my first posts after coming (well I will be coming) back into the Ducati Fold.
Im currently outfitting/accessorizing/farkling a Hypermotard 950 RVE that will be delivered sometime in the fall.
When I last outfitted a Ducati (2007 S2R) back in ‘07, there were quite a few...
The point of the Wild Card tag is to reproduce a similar photo of an object or place that can be found in many different locations around the world. Much like a scavenger hunt, examples include specific street signs, a railway crossing with train, yourself at a toll booth with reciept, etc...
I found a 1198S SE. But the owner said that the original owner had changed the triple tree to an aftermarket unit. There for losing the edition number plate. Is there any way of lookin up the authenticity of this model by using its VIN number? or engine VIN number?
