Very cool Jordan!

You guys get some turns in?
On my first take-off, I hit second gear and went through the speed limit on a two-lane blacktop highway full of ranch traffic. By the time I went up to third, I was going 75 and the tach was barely above 4000 rpm....
And that's when the Ducati got its second wind. From 4000 to 6000 in third will take you from 75 mph to 95 in two seconds - and after that, Bubba, you still have fourth, fifth, and sixth. Ho, ho.

Unlike you guys, I was not in the South Colony area, and I have no Colt 45 on hand, but I shall forthwith enjoy a Jack and water in honor of the Monkey!

Cheers!

Nope, Snow didn't freeze, made for crappy climbing, but the colt 45 never tasted better.
