A Quick Trip to Cape Meares on the Ducati and VFR

I had tried earlier this year to sell my Ducati 750SS, but admittedly it’s a slow market and I was asking a premium. Fast-forward to June and the weather has finally turned to summer.

Motorcycling Trips to be Remembered: July 4 Weekend, 2008

Paul and I hatched this little plan a few weeks before his 33rd birthday to take 3 day road trip over the July 4th weekend.

Ducati Demo Day: A Kid in a Kick Ass Candy Store

Paul and I did the Ducati Demo Day at MotoCorsa in Portland this past Saturday. It was completely awesome!
