I suppose that's just me

...We all share a fascinating common interest, and come here for whatever ride we ride. I find it great.
For me, bored is generally a prerequisite for being here.

He's about to cross the double yellow. Is that a car tire? Nice tassles. And wearing chapless jeans...

Note the late apex line he is using, precisely locating his rear contact patch on HIS yellow line without crossing the double yellow.

The quote on his blog says "It is more fun to ride a slow bike fast." He must really be loving riding that Ducati.

Those guys make this stuff looks so easy.

For those not familiar with Hayden, here is a picture of him the day he got the news he was going to Ducati:

Good thing he kept his hand off the front brake lever. You know what happens if you use that front brake.

He is just practicing good riding skills.
