Does it count if it's on the slab? A couple of years ago (yes years), I boldly announced to a few buddies that we need to get some dual sports and "see the sights!" So tomorrow, we are mounting up our Ducati's and heading out on the highway. That's right....street bikes.....on the pavement. So it really didn't happen the way that I wanted it, but hell, it's on a bike. See, I grew up riding the dirt but my pals didn't. They already had street bikes and I (at the time) had nothing but 4 wheeled transportation. They figured that it would be easier for one person (me) to buy a street bike than for all the rest to buy dirt bikes. Good logic, I guess. Tomorrow, we head out. Ironically enough, only two of us. They others coundn't get permission. WTF! It's only a couple of days. Not like we're doing a real ride like the rest of you on this site. Pictures starting tomorrow, but I make no promisses. Even with all the digital technology....I'm still photographically challenged. Wish me luck. PS. Only riding two lane roads less travelled. No Interstate.
