Ok, I’m getting a bit crazy now.

I’ve now been unable to ride my motorcycle for almost three weeks, never mind that I can ride my wife’s bike… I want my motorcycle back.

I know they (were) both Ducati Monster 620’s making the same power, I even moved my seat from my bike to her’s trying to make it feel no different. It was OK for a while, but now it’s not quite as fun as riding mine. Sure it’s the little things that I notice, five gears instead of six, no slipper clutch and brakes that are a bit sharper with the initial bite. They don’t bug me, these things just remind me that it’s not my motorcycle.

It’s that certain je ne sais quoi… that my bike has. Which I think translates to “I really can’t go as fast on my wife’s bike since if I crash on it I might as well be killed in the crash because she’ll kill me anyway”.


Or maybe it is just because it’s red.

I'd hate me too if I knew this  was how I rode home.

I  can’t wait to have her back.



About MotoCynic

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
