This is why one could like a motorcycle... Let's start out by admitting that I'm a big Ducati fan. To own a Ducati has always seemed like dating a high-strung, disloyal, supermodel who expects to be pampered and lavished with expensive gifts. (We'll just pretend here that I know what the supermodel dating game is like.) It takes a lot of money and effort to keep her happy, but when she's happy, the sex is great. Unfortunately, the few periods of great sex are separated by frequent visits to the shop for expensive maintenance or repairs. Every time she refuses to start, or just stops running half way to wherever, it's like catching her cheating on me with my mechanic. Pro's to owning a Ducati: 1-Ducati's simply kick ass. 2-Dedicated riding position eliminates posers. Cons to owning a Ducati: 1-Expensive membership. 2-"Good afternoon officer."
