No broken ankle, just a broken foot

Fucking sucked!!!

Has everyone seen this? Ridiculous, but sort of awesome:

That Triumph is crazy ugly.

 

Forever hatin' on those headlights and new-bike mufflers.

That's why they invented Multstradas.

Considering copping.

Will those work with your boots? They look to extend pretty far down the leg. I went with Forcefield's limb tubes in part because they won't interefere with full-on moto boots:

Looks better with arrow exhaust and a flyscreen...

Good call. I'll have to try them on with the boots. I do recall riding to my football (soccer) game once with my shinpads already on and while they didn't interfere w/ the boots, they did bug me a bit because they'd hit the side of the bike when I was shifting.

Madness on 2 wheels:  Ulster GP, Isle of Man TT and the NW200.

These fit the bill and they're only nine bucks at Home Depot:

I would not trust those to stay in place at 60 MPH on asphalt....

Oh, I know, I used to have an MTS1200 and it is, in my opinion, the best motorcycle being sold currently. But, still, this thing looks fun.

The Multistrada 1100 was the Pontiac Aztec of the motorcycling world.  The 1200 looks better but it still an ugly duckling. How could ducati design such an ugly bike I will never know.  They literally were selling the best looking as well as the worst looking bikes in the world.

I agree that the first one was ugly. The second one had the weird beak, but I thought it was reasonably good looking (certainly compared to the GS). But, more importantly, it is, by far, the most versatile bike out there. If I was buying motorcycles today, I would buy an MTS first and then start looking at other stuff, it is a no-brainer.

3 of the Marley "kids" rode them throughout Africa on their way to South Africa for World Cup
