Loving Ducati has many dimensions

Today I have done some updates on the blog, there is info to read about my travel preparations in my To-Do list and on my packing page. (This info is no longer availible)

But for the upcoming weekend there are other things to focus on. For me Ducati is synonymous with many things it’s not just riding a bike, any bike. Being a ducatista means so much more!

This upcoming weekend I am going to dedicate to another aspect, cheering for the Ducati riders at the Moto GP in Estoril!

Forza Rossi & Hayden!!!

Tucked away & making connections

Awesome! The other day I got contacted by my WIMA friend in Estonia. She is thinking of going to England for the rally and if so we might be able to meet up along the way. If this is possible it would indeed be so cool!

But now it’s Easter holiday and and I leave my planning for a bit. While I travel by other means I left my Ducati safe stored away and shielded from any occasional rain. Many people laugh at me for covering my bike, and indeed it is unusual. Few people do this, but then most people have the possibility to park in a garage for most of the time. I don’t enjoy this luxury and I have bad experiences from having my bike parked out in heavy rain. My first Ducati got a soaked water filter and coughed for a long time. My second one got a problem with the electric making the oil lamp light up in heavy rain. I find it hard to ride on with it lit, it cold be an actual oil pressure failure, how would I know? So this caused a lot of hassle and I like to avoid problems if I can.

So to keep my third Ducati safe and happily cover it when raining heavily and let people laugh!

Networking

I spent this evening surfing the net getting connected with new and old friends in the biker world. And what a world this is! I got hooked on following links to new links to new links… I had planned to set up the “To Do-list” and make some kind of dinner but some how I never got there. (I did have some gazpacho and biscuits during the evening, so never mind). I hope that this will results in new visitors to the blog – Welcome! Follow me on my adventure. I happily receive comments in English, Swedish and Spanish.

Now I’m off to bed, but first one last thing. Just because I love pictures – this is my Ducati parked for the first time, on its now usual spot, here in Alcobendas.
