When I first bought my Ducati 1098 I had grand dreams of riding everywhere on it. I did follow through on most of them and my 2nd summer of ownership I took a solo trip to the dragon from NY. I spent four and half days and 2000+ miles on a torture rack of an italian motorcycle. It rained it poured the temps dipped below reasonable levels and the sun did peek out every once and a while. O and not to mention the time I hit the killswitch at 80mph at 11pm at night still 700 miles from home……..I panicked thinking the bike died on me! But it just made everything that much more fun! I couldn’t think of a better steed for the trip as it made every single turn that much more exciting. This is a picture from it.
Of course afterwards advil was my best friend for the next week! This is so far my greatest motorcycle trip yet I need to do it again sometime. Or maybe go somewhere else like cross country on the same bike! I have a whole ride report for it too i’ll have to post it some time. What is your favorite trip?
