Labor Day Ride: Out to the Coast

I woke up early yesterday morning, not unusual for me I get up for work at 5 am most days, so getting up at 7 was relatively easy. I threw on my gear and was out the door and onto the Ducati Monster, heading to some good roads. I did not have anything specific in mind just a general idea that I would head to the coast.

Typical Northern California Beach weather. Fog.

It was a great ride, not too long, but I spent two hours zipping out to the coast and back. Ninety miles of motorcycling nirvana. By the time the world was really waking up I was safely at the coffee shop with my wife planning the rest of our day.

I’m glad I got out early and before traffic got too heavy. There is nothing more disappointing for me than having great riding road ruined by poking along behind someone who is lost, or just admiring the scenery. I love the redwoods as much as anyone, but I’m up here all the time so no need to gawk.

There was lots of sun back that way.

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.

  1. How does it feel with the new engine? Can you feel the extra ccs or just younger engine? 🙂
