Dude, Steve said you were surprised when you heard I picked up a Duc last season. So here's a personal notice to you that I grabbed another bike to add to the stable. It's that "New year, new bike" affliction I have. Kept the Duc too, in case you're wondering. No, I haven't ridden it yet. It's an ornament for the time being. Just for grins, I posted this in my "home" forum since it's a rarity that I post at all and this subforum gets slagged all the time for lack of participation. Check it out... So I get her home from the dealer in middle of the afternoon yesterday, but the kiddies needed some attention since the wife and I were out all day, so I put off riding her around town thinking I'd have a chance today. Well this is what I woke up to this morning. Karma's a bitch... I'll change my avatar at some point. The striple is long gone. Or I could wait a few years and see if another one shows up in my garage. Later, Rob.
