Misc Stuff - Ramblings

First of all I wanted to plug the site above. http://www.talesofaducrider.com
I was surfing the Ducati board and found his site. he has some cool toys, and a very nice blog.

Riding to work...
My wife had a slight mishap on 75 last Friday, so the Honda civic is in the shop getting a new hood and front left panel replaced. She is fine, but the car will be in the shop for a few days. I decided that I would let her take my truck to work and I would ride the Trophy to the office. Well I have to say that it was not a fun ride. Riding in rush hour traffic just sucks. I hated every minute of it. I don't see how people do it every single day. I felt like I was a pawn in a big computer game and the object was to run over the motorcycle. I will do it for a couple of more days, but YIKES it is a tad scary.

Trophy Running Like A Dream...
Took the trophy for a spirited ride on Sunday. Rob took his 675 and I jumped on the Trophy and we headed up to 697. For those of you not from N Texas, this is probably the best twisty road in the area. The Trophy handled better than I expected and the motor was wonderful. I am so happy that I made the choice to pick this bike up. It is very cool.

Thanks for the nice prop Jerry!

Yeah, riding in rush hour traffic sucks! The risk vs. reward quotient is pretty low!
