I Ride: Diavel Strada, Monster 696
Love and trespass

Nothing but praise and occasionally astonishment that a two-up Duc exists. Or did...
But this happened: I was returning to the bike from a restaurant just north of the North Rim of Grand Canyon NP, and spotted a Japanese tourist ASTRIDE MY STRADA! He saw my approach, and with his photographer buds returned to his van. I came to their window all friendly like, and they were SO excited to have seen such a machine (and sat on it!). We spoke different languages so our intercourse was limited to shared moto-love, but I got such a kick out of their innocent enthusiasm I didn't mind a bit the trespass.

I Ride: 2015 Diavel Carbon White
The perennial stupid comment is, whenever I am heard talking about "my bikes", "Do you ride a Harley?"

My answer is always, "No, because I am not old enough yet to want to ride so slowly, and I don't know how to dress like a pirate."

I Ride: Diavel Carbon Red MY14 "Audrey"
Here in Italy the Diavel caused a ruckus, when it came out, both between Ducatisti and between bikers in general. It was hard for them to understand what it was, and what its purpose was. Which has to do with the silliest thing I've been told about it:
"E' un cancello! Non piega! Con quel gommone sta in piedi senza cavalletto!!!"
("It's a gate!" (we use "gate" to mean something huge, ugly and heavy) - "It will never (bend? fold? get inclined in curves, that's what I mean)" - "With that rear tyre, it will stand also without sidestand!").

Well, I went on some mountain passes with other bikers, and I also had a passenger. When the others arrived on the top, I was already having my beer. LOL!

New Cromo owner

Owned several Ducatis previously. Lusted over the Diavel since its introduction. Found this 2013 Cromo (see attached photo) with only 1200 miles and brought it home. It now shares space with a '99 900SS and an '01 748R. Happy to add another Duck to the collection.
