Saturday morning hunt for a new bike

This weekend I finally made it down to Destination Motorcycles.
I got to sit on a few bikes and talk to the owner. I have a little more respect for the Ducati Multistrada now that I've been on one.
But the real reason that I was there was to sit on the HyperMotard. Bad name, but a bad ass bike.

Possibly my last ride for 2008

Took my motorcycle out today for one last ride. I think the temperatures were in the upper 30's/lower 40's.
