    "The Most Entertaining Ducati Review Ever". Worth the read in full

    "There are some things nobody needs in this world, and a bright-red, hunch-back, warp-speed 900cc cafe racer is one of them – but I want one anyway, and on some days I actually believe I need one. That is why they are dangerous."

    "Some people will tell you that slow is good – and it may be, on some days – but I am here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…."

    A good read, no doubt... I like the part where he says he gets off the bike and goes into a 30 or 40 second trance before he calms down enough to ride home...yep, felt that before.

    Cycle World had a follow-up article in 2012, written by the editor responsible for the story: Going Gonzo Revisited
