Late July at New York Safety Track

Las Vegas was fun, but I was itching to get back to the track.  I'm also having my floors redone (for the second time in as many years, as it wasn't done right the first time), so I have no home to come back to.  Guess I'll just go straight to the track!
So, my girlfriend picked me up in the morning at Newark airport from a redeye from Vegas, and we found a park (which turned out to be Liberty National Park), threw down a blanket like the (temporarily) homeless people we were, and took a nap till I had to drive to La Guardia a few hours later to drop her off for a flight for a work trip.
Then I turned around and headed north towards Harpersfield to New York Safety Track!!

Raul Partakes a Panigale

While my track bike is in the shop, I'm helping others with their bikes, as it's pretty good to have a pickup truck.

My buddy Raul has been talking about a Panigale for years.

XDiavel at Harlem Superbike School

JZ added a new steed to the paddock this afternoon, trading in his beautifully customized Monster 1200S, 
for a matte grey X-Diavel from Ducati New York. 
We hung out at the shop for a bit, admiring the V4Rs, 
Angel's "La Pasolita" Hypermotard, 
 abnd a very cool Carl Fogarty edition "Foggy" Monster, 
number 96/100 I believe. 
We then headed up to White Plains to rip, meeting up w/ El Duro on the way.

For V4Rs at Ducati New York

Steve, the owner of Ducati New York asked me to take down my social media post, as he didn't want other dealers getting jealous that the Soho dealer had four of Ducati's top-of-the-line homologation race bike before anyone else received any.

TwoWheelTuesday at Spiegel

You know it's springtime when the motorcycles come back out on Tuesday nights to a little cafe in the East Village on 1st Avenue and 2nd Street called Spiegel for what's now becoming the city's pre-eminent bike night.
TwoWheelTuesday Bike Night in Manhattan at Spiegel
We had a whole bunch of Ducs out, and then I had a special opportunity to submit a question to Ducati's Andrea Dovisioso that he might read out on social media, which my friend Paul had come up with.
"Hey Dovi, Pizza bianchi o pizza rosso?" with Henry, Jerry and Mufa.

Revival Cycles in Austin Texas

Before leaving Austin, and this epic MotoGP weekend behind, we had to check out Revival Cycles a custom motorcycle builder and shop.
 It's a cute little shop that definitely caters to the hipster crowd, but they have a ton of very cool custom bikes.

Suspension Seminar with DucatiNYCs Dave You

Ducati New Yorks Dave You Suspension 101 class
 Dave from Ducati New York puts on a pretty amazing suspension seminar a couple times each winter,
 where he teaches you about the mechanics of how forks and shocks function on bikes,
and then how to tune them. 
 The event was pretty incredible (and educational),
 and for $40 came with a free Ducati New York t-shirt and a free suspension set up.
