That is a waste, and it's sad to see all those good bikes not getting used for their intended purpose.
It should be a crime.

Hugh Hefner reference:
Would you rather have hundreds of babes walking your property, be able to look at them all but never touch any of them, or have one attractive wife who is accessisble to you as an 85 year old?

Even at a mere 66, couldn't care less about "babes" any more, accessible or not, but I prefer to have a motorcycle I can ride.

Great collection. Since he rides and races in addition to collecting, I think we should appreciate that he has captured these bikes to be looked at and admired. T1

Every bike I own will always be dirty and enjoyed to the fullest. I'll never have anything "collector worthy"

Other bike at the moment is a 2014 Ford Escape. I'm hoping to get either a Dualsport, Grom or SuperMoto next, something more friendly for winter.

Also it could be anything with two wheels. I'm not picky.

An observation that stood-out among many Ducati forums is that many Ducati riders are also avid cyclists. We have a couple of reasonably priced recreational bicycles but I've seen some extremely high end all carbon fiber racing rigs that are worth more than some motorcycles.
That’s a really great observation. I’ve noticed the same thing but didn’t really think about it until your post. It seemed like a natural cross over to me. I've always been a bit bike mad. It all started in the 70's with a red Radio Flyer tricycle. Lol. I started really cycling while living abroad. I bought a used steel touring bike I remember I didn’t so much ride as lumbered in lieu of a car. Then one day a friend let me ride her gorgeous Colnago EPS. There was no coming back from that. Some people meditate; I became an endurance cyclist. I found I had a weakness for Italian bikes—Pinarello, Colnago and De Rosa but my dream bike is a Campag’ed Bianchi. Last year I was given a vintage alum Bianchi TT frame by an old friend who said if he if he didn’t build it when he bought it in 2004, he was never going to build it. Said he’d never met a girl who loved bikes like I did and wanted me to build it. For some women the best gifts are measured in carats. For me, it’s carbon. Lol. But, I did notice, to my surprise, the bicycles I want cost way more than any of the motorcycles.

I don’t find it goes the other way around though. None of my cyclist friends have motorcycles. Last weekend I was talking to someone who’d moved here from Australia. He’d seen some photos I’d posted on FB and had seen my Monster. He started to go on about how he would never ride a motorbike in this country, that it was too dangerous. “I mean an F150 is a powerful bike.” I didn’t say anything but it was funny, sort of cute. I imagined a Ducati F150 would probably be fairly dangerous so he was absolutely right.


I can easily align everything I love about cycling into riding a motorcycle, right down the beauty of Italian design. Open air, open road and going for a long ride. The only difference really is I'm not the engine and there's the part about engaging in an activity deemed too risky and ill-advised for a person of my demographic. Lol.



Then and now..
