I think I worry my kids by the pace at which I go through motorcycles. I try to assure them that my proclivity for disposing of and acquiring my motorcycles babies does NOT extend to my human babies . . . but they are dubious. In any case, let me introduce to you bike number seven, a 2003 Ducati Monster 620ie.
Long story short, my cousin's hubby wasn't riding it anymore and generously allowed me to take it off of his hands. My plan after finishing my term as Moderator was to get another bike, but some offers simply cannot be refused. I have usually been a standard retro bike person and have never really pictured myself as a Ducati guy. I guess I am now. I actually don't know much about them, but I am reading up and if the gushing reviews are true, I'm way ready to take it out for a spin.
It'll be in the shop for another week getting into riding condition, so I have a little time to pick a name for her. In the past we have had "Clara," "Betty Blue Baby," "Betty Blue Baby II" and more recently, "Trixie Triumph." This is the girls favorite part of the bike conversation and they have suggested a few, but, seriously . . . I need some help here. So far the following names have been offered.
- Bumble Bee
- Buzz Buzz
- The Roaring Banana
- Gialla (Yellow in Italian)
- Dilaw kulog (Yellow Thunder in Tagalog)
- Arctic Midnight
- Old Yeller
While I maintain the final say, feel free to offer up some names . . . you can't really do any worse than "Buzz Buzz." Please help me . . .
