henchmanI used to ride a Ducati Monster, and now miss it dearly. Among all the bikes I owned, it was my favorite. It made kickass sounds in shades of black in muted chrome. Plus, it was my only transportation year-round.

If it snowed, I found a groove in the road and off I slid. The most frightening experience was riding in hail, but can’t tell you why. It was a been there, done that sort of thing.

The image is how I looked in my mind’s eye. Yeah, the baddass artist from hell. The one who scared himself too many times.

  1. Hailstones? Like flies in your teeth? Yeeeow.
    Torque always wins — it’s there in the compressed airwaves, those wonderful ink-curves. Another fine one!
    Never had the whatever-it-takes to try a bike. Went with big block engines, thanks to an almost-husband who rebuilt them as a hobby. My g-force hat’s off to the people who v-r-r-r-r-ooooooooom on two wheels.


    1. I loved motorcycling, went through many country roads, city streets, etc. It is such an economical rush.

      However and am sure your city is the same – dumbass drivers. They are more prevalent than ever and took the joy away.

      I couldn’t have fun, because I concentrating on being alive.

      1. Yes — those pesky ice pellets — wondered if they were flying into your face. Had to hurt. Or be very noisy if they hit a helmet/visor.
        At least flies squish on impact. :/


  2. A good story and a very fine picture to go with it, Barry. I like your way of capturing the details of hands and faces, sort of a bit distracted attention in the same way mind and thoughts wander; the way I see it.
