Hello my imaginary group of ass-kickin, Ducati riding,woman drinkin, beer chasin motorcycle friends who I have had the pleasure of meeting. (can you all pick up the sarcasm)

Looks like the introduction of myself will have to wait. I tell you guys, you don't know what your missin.

Anyways, I just thought I would tell you all about this problem I have, because it keeps getting worse...

Each Fall, I take my bike off the streets for another winter and successfully delude myself into thinking that I am happy being a normal person. That the feeling of climbing onto a sleek 900cc monsterbike early in the morning doesnt really make going to college any easier, nor that making up excuses to drive hundreds of miles with such validations as "well I have to have some REAL wisconsin cheese for my crackers" is a totally healthy and sane thing to do when you have the motorcycle that I have.

Anyways, it used to be that I would be able to convince myself of this until at least January with little to no problem. I could forget I had a motorcycle almost.

This isn't happening anymore though see, its been only a month and i'm already having motorcycle dreams at night. I can't help but think about the time I raced the old man near LaCrosse who had no helmet on and a bike that looked older than me , while Im driving my truck to school.

I can't listen to firestarter now without hearing the rev of an engine in the backround from the time when the timing of the music in my helmet and the approach of the CBR just happend to be perfectly in tune with that red light......



*sigh*


Its going to be a long winter.

in 37 days I will be back in the saddle. You can always trailer the bikes down and ride with me and Lyle! There is a track day for Ducatis only and two others for all bikes that I know of so far.

Yeah, that is exactly what I want, a $8000 toy I can ride twice a year when the snow is deep enough. I'll deal with not being on the road another way thanks.

I agree. Snowmobiles are a waste of time. especially in this god forsaken state.

When and were is this track day Loki? I would be interested in that.

Of course last year for spring break we trailered our bike and headed south to arkansas thinking we could ride and it ended up being colder there than it was here.

Tony I think you must go to the track day.then change your handle to
Texas Tony or TonyTejas.....there are quite a few here too.....will do the code in April and Pridmore later. If I could get my butt going and find the money there is a Pridmore class at Willow Springs in a couple of weeks....

I brought my Duc over to Motoprimo Wednesday night to have them figure out what's wrong with the electrical system. Probably something to do with having a bunch of snow on it and the electrical system getting wet I'd guess. Got to change the fuel pump in my Jeep this evening which was fun. Nothing like weather cold enough to cause wrenches to stick to bare flesh. Good thing it's an old vehicle with a Chevy engine. $14 got me a new pump and 20 minutes of freezing my @$$ off got it on. Runs like a champ now, just wish Ducati parts were as cheap and common as small block Chevy billet aluminum bling-bling. Cheers,
Hanns
