A man walks into a Ducati shop...

and gets shown what is hiding out back.

I snapped this pic with my phone at Portland MotoCorsa. The story is these 10 little beauties were used in a recent photo shoot at Nike and are waiting to be shipped back to Italy. The bikes inside the shop were nice too

Maybe just my eyes, but that looks like a lot more than ten bikes. So I counted, and sure enough, it's ten bikes. Of course I have had a few beers...

Just because you are not man enough to ride one doesn't mean others can't...

The thing i think of first whenever I see an MV is the race track test the biggest bike magazine in Germany did when they came out...the first time it went down the straight the engine threw a broken pushrod through the crankcase, dumping the whole supply of engine oil on the rear tire and the track...at around 170mph.

Italian driving. Bikes parked counter to the painted lines. Still, if there are shipping delays or shop space shortages I'll be pleased to store one here.
