2002 Ducati MH900e Evoluzione, 1 of 200 for sale $17k

Okay I know nothing about this bike. But I think it looks odd and weird but in a good way. I'm sure it is overpriced, as this guy's stuff is usually priced high but it seems to be a clean example.

house of pain

The Bandit TOTALLY needs one of these gnarly facemasks. Rock your dark red bandana in your left pocket and you're good to go, daddy-o!

the Triple Nipple is trying to kill me!

After all that riding, I pulled into the garage and saw this fucking bent rim as I was walking out.
It's from the pothole on 555. I knew I hit it hard, and I heard something metal hitting the pothole but everything seemed fine after the fact. The Nickel was intent on stealing all 9 of my lives, evidently.
I have no idea if insurance will cover it, but I'm going to call and see. It might be able to get banged back into shape, but worst case is I need to buy a new bloody rim out of pocket. Ohio adventures are bloody expensive. I guess the riding pants can wait until before the next challenging jaunt. At least we all made it back in one piece. Or six.

high times

Picked up the Triumph Highgate jacket today from Detroit Triumph. 
  • Fully perforated mesh panels and hitena construction keeps you cool during the hottest days
  • Easily removable CE certified shoulder and elbow protectors
  • Side adjustment zippers
  • Decorative contrast stitch detailing
  • Waist connection zipper supplied

It was $150. Best looking perforated jacket they had by a long shot. Fits well. Rode it today in nearly 90 degree weather... and would still prefer to be in a short-sleeve shirt. It's not as breathable as I had imagined it would be, considering you can essentially see through it due to the mesh, but it's a jacket so it's bound to be LESS cool than a cotton sleeveless shirt. However, I think the fact I was wearing a backpack weighed down w/ 4 quarts of oil didn't help any. 
I'm gonna wear it down to Hocking Hills and I'm glad I have it. I just don't think I'll be the kind of dude who dons a jacket every time he rides as habit. We'll see. Weird, cuz I NEVER ride w/out gloves...
I tried on some kevlar jeans but they didn't have my size. It'd be nice to have some riding jeans but the Triumph ones were a little too generous in cut. I need something more svelte for my popsicle-stick legs. And I don't wanna get into anything like those "adventure" looking pants or whatever. Unless I'm going on an adventure in the jungle, I'll stick w/ denim. 

I dig the Corazzo 5.0 jacket I have, but that's more for the fall/winter. Very wind resistant. And water resistant. 

• Removable CE Rated Knox® Armor in shoulders, elbows & back
• 1000 denier Cordura® abrasion and water resistant shell
• Reflective 3M Scotchlite™ trim for 360° degree nighttime visibility
• Superior venting for warm days
• Two-inch longer tail & arms designed for upright riding
• YKK® high-grade zippers throughout
• Fleece lined collar and cuffs

WTF Seat

I guess it was only a matter of time...I have officially broken all mounting brackets to my seat. I just ordered another set, I really hope it gets here before our ride.


In With The New

Well I have been looking for an adventure touring bike for some time now but hadn't quite found what I was looking for until last week. I was trolling CL and found a higher mileage 2005 Triumph Tiger 955i. Only one problem it was in Illinois...

Well I said fuck it and booked it out there with my trusty dag Diesel encase I was surrounded by another rival MC with my bros hundreds of miles away. I got there and found it truly was the bike of my dreams a few power on wheelies on the way back home and it was mine!

Better pics to come once I get it washed up but these will do for now.

Someone tried to off the Prez on 4th of July!!!
Or some retard shot their gun in the air and it came down and fucked up my g-ride. It's been dented by freakish hail and sliced up by road debris, and now it's been shot! The nerve. 
I rode over to Clean Cut's crib today and as we were looking at the damage w/ Ezee, Clean Cut pulled off one of the door panels and out popped the spent shell. 
So now it's in the fair hands of my old lady and she's gonna solder a jumpring onto it and put it on a chain for me. (note: I avoided saying "necklace" b/c it just doesn't sound manly, unless it's a necklace of shrunken heads or other such body parts.)

FSMC gets all educational and shit.

This video works on two immediate levels: 1) The opening is a bunch of synchronized motorcycle riding circa 1937 and 2) afterwards, it demonstrates in layman's terms how a rear differential works.
If I can fucking understand it then it definitely did it's job b/c all that engineering crap is way over my head. I twist the throttle and the bike moves. That's about all I know when it comes to how a bike works.
I always hear Clarkson and co. going on about rear slip differentials on Top Gear and I had no idea what it did. Hell, I bet Clarkson doesn't know what they do and he doesn't want James May boring him to death w/ an overly-complicated yet accurate description.  So here it is for the layman. Or mechanically-retarded.
