I can't pass it without snapping a pic...

This little Ducati just lights my fuse, man. I'd put up with a lot of mechanical fussiness to be able to putter around Broad Ripple of a crisp fall day on that thing.

I was pedaling past on the Broad Ripple SUV, and happened to have the Nikon D700 & Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 VR along, so I hopped off to get a better photo than the somewhat potato ones I'd already taken of it with various pocket cams.

Speaking of the Broad Ripple SUV, I was pulling it out for a ride early this summer and noticed that the leather on the saddle had worn through in one spot. "What the hell?" I thought, "This is my new bike!"

And then I thought it over and realized that I bought this bike ten years ago this month.
