It Never Ends

The Problem. When I have too much time on my hands I go look at other motorcycles. I've been on a job in So Cal and have had much standby time in which I have been to Del Amo Motorsports in Redondo Beach and today at Bert's in Covina, both of which have Ducati 1198's in stock, and available, in red.....groan. What got me started was at a stoplight in El Segundo that a Ducati Monster took off on the green with that unmistakable sound of a Duc. Hooked, I went looking. Bert's has a new '09 discounted to 14K, sweet, that's a 19K MSRP.

This would be the third in the stable. I gently tried to lure my beloved into the idea and I will quote her, "I'm tired of being the Other Woman".

What to do?


Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

Hey flash, how long are you going to hanging out in my neighborhood?

I bought my bike from Del Amo, and I work in El Segundo. One of the kids at work has a 948, and there's a 1198 in the parking lot.

Tom, currently hanging out with Tropical Storm Ida in Tampa...

Not much longer. Be doing some finish up work tomorrow at Chevron and should be heading back to Texas around noon. Funny you should mention Ida, we have a crew sidelined in Monroe, LA. They were headed to Mobile and got turned around.

Bummers and drags.

If you ever get back, let me know and I'll treat you to some eats at the Fish Company.

Appreciate that! I lived here a long time ago, my first stop was In-N-Out....Double-Double you know. Lucille's, Pinks, Chris & Pitts and Vince's so far. I *may* have put on some poundage on this trip.

Remember when you could take the In-N-Out bumper sticker and and cut the "b" and "r" off the end of "burger" and stick it on your ride?

Just so happens..........left side of toolbox. Probably stuck that there around 1979 or so.






I had to dig around in my saved photos for a bit but I knew I would have had a shot of that toolbox in the background somewhere.

All right!

BTW, I'm sorry that I hijacked your thread, I'm done now, and I hope Mrs. Lockjaw doesn't see it...

Back to Ducati stuff.
