If you have been reading this blog you know I’ve been actively working on slimming down. The motivations were many but I’ll be honest and say that making sure I did not get too heavy for my motorcycle gear was one of them. The Lovely Wife assured me that I would not be allowed to get all new gear if I got to big for it… so with that only upside removed I decided that I might as well get faster (er I mean lighter).
So far so good. When I’m writing this I’m about 25 pounds lighter than when I started in Mid October. Although I’m thinner now than I’ve been in ages I’m not done yet. Hopefully soon I’ll be even closer to my goal of losing 30 lbs.
What does all this really mean?
It means I went from having 0.101 Hp per pound to 0.105 Hp per pound. Basically I’m faster (even if it’s only by fractions) and that is really all that matters.
- Curb Weight of 2005 Ducati Monster is 390 lbs, and has 60 horse power.
- I wear about 20 lbs of motorcycle gear.
