I recently needed to sell my pride and joy, a Ducati 848 motorcycle.
That bike was absolutely amazing. When I saw it at the dealership I was instantly sold. It was 1.5 years old in mint conditions with carbon pipes. It’s a Ducati do I even need to tell you how it sounded when I started it up? There is no better sound! It was loud but not obnoxious, well maybe a little LOL. No matter what motorcycle you have the sound of starting it up and the smell of the toxic fumes are part of the experience. Riding in the mountains and coming out of a corner with a 1000 foot cliff on one side and opening the throttle is the ultimate feeling. It’s the combination of the low growl, vibration, and acceleration. Can you imagine turning that corner twisting the throttle and hearing silence? I realize that gas is expensive and we need to be green but I can not imagine riding an electric motorcycle. No fumes and no noise just complete silence. What are your thoughts? Has anyone tried one? I know my next bike is still going to run on high-octane CO2 producing gas!
Great run this morning to the beach in L.A. I have been slacking on my workout routines and finally checked the mirror and was not happy. After running 4 miles last night I decided I was going to run to the beach this morning which was a 7.5 mile round trip. 11.5 miles in the last 18 hours. Although it was a 3.5 mile jump with no rest I felt great. For some reason people were staring at me in their cars. I think it was because I was running on a road with no shoulder part of the time but thats the way to the beach so what am I supposed to do. I have to say I used to hate running and although I think it takes awhile before you start to like it, it can really be amazing. Running almost always puts me in a good mood. Sometimes I am in a bad mood because I have to run but when I am finished I am always happy.
