New Bike!

I haven't posted much about my enjoyment of motorcycles, but yesterday I took the next step in my ongoing series of motorcycle experiences.

My new bike is a 2005 Suzuki DL1000 otherwise known at the V-strom. I'm looking forward to getting to know it a lot better. The previous owner put a lot of aftermarket farkles on it including heated grips (incredibility useful as it was 40F on the way home) and a custom seat which seems great so far.

For the last few years I've been riding this 1998 Ducati ST2, which has been a wonderful bike, but as I get older the position gets more uncomfortable the longer I go. And lets just say it is a tad expensive to maintain.

Back in the day I rode one of these to and from work. Things have sure changed.
