My soul is fed with the sweetest nectar every time I fire up my beloved Monster and roar through the gears. We become one, snorting and growling,... seducing the road with some primal passion. And every time I return, to leave it in the garage for the night, it is the same: "Humbaba," I say "you are a gift from the gods." (Who would've guessed they were Italian)?

Just felt the need to testify. Can I get a witness? ;D

Humbaba,

You better be careful or some of the Midwesterns that are digging out from a snowstorm might put a curse on you!

Of course it was cold as sh!t in Vegas today when I took the S4 out for a spin (40F).

i think the other day it was at least 30 degrees F (evening)... was in SF and heading back w/my summer perffed leathers - no windscreen btw.

just gotta love that cold brisk air rushing into your helmet and the heat just dissipating from your bones in your hands!

Last Sunday it was in the upper 60's here in Michigan. Of course I had the Monster out. But I fear it will be the last ride of the year. :( The weather since has been crappy, a little rain, a little snow. Typical for this time of year. So on occasion I go out to the garage and just look at her. Admiring her beauty and design. With thoughts of the upcoming spring; Daytona, The Dragon and the occasional ride to Hell for a Dam Site burger and a cold one. In a way it will be nice to have some down time to work on her and get the mods done before next season. :)

Amen. You've got a witness! ;D

If you're talking about the night of Borg Girl's party, then I'm feelin' ya; that was the night the balls froze off of the brass monkey!

BTW, anyone who can tell me the origin of that expression wins a free Ducati mug 8) (but it has to go to someone who doesn't already have one, so if you win you can pass the prize to a hooligan in need) ;)
