It wasn’t a Scooter, but it was cool

It’s been a bit of a quiet week, not much riding to be had….today we went for a spin after work….but more on that later.

You may be wondering about the title of today’s blog post…..well today Anthony got a chance to get up-close to a sexy piece of Italian two-wheeled engineering. He would first like to mention that it wasn’t quite as sexy as the 1098 that was parked across the road from it, but it was still a Ducati, and it did look cool.

The bike in question was a Ducati Hypermotard 1100 S, and when asked why the owner chose black instead of red, his response was….”everybody has a red Ducati…..”

But it was a mean looking bike and had all the good gear (Pirelli’s, Brembo brakes, carbon fibre exhaust…..)

Unfortunately Anthony didn’t get to go for a ride on it, but he enjoyed the time spent drooling over it….

As mentioned earlier, we went for a late afternoon ride after work, and I’m not sure if it was the cooler temperature, or possibly the brush with the sexy Italian, but the ride was so much fun. We went for a quick (by quick I mean we rode as quick as legally possible, accelerating between traffic lights, roundabouts etc as quick as possible.) ride from Kingscliff, up the highway and then headed past the sights, sounds and late afternoon smells of Coolangatta and headed up to the Rusty Eagle. We hung out there for a while, then headed back down through Cooly, and down through Tweed Heads, (making a quick beverage supply stop) and then headed home……

It was bucket loads of fun….and although Anthony wasn’t riding a Ducati, (or even a Derbi) he certainly smiled like he was!

This week’s segment of Monaco’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week features a Canadian. She was born and raised in Vancouver, and although she acted at school, never thought she would achieve big time success.
She has described herself as a shy and boring person, but her career has certainly taken off since 2001 when she became the reason why males watch “Smallville”. She has also been featured in Neutrogena skin care product commercials. She is part Dutch, part Chinese, but born in Indonesia. She has a purple belt in Karate and she is….Kristen Kreuk.
