Stripped down - UMC 038 Hyper Scrambler

Upon visiting my blog anyone could pick up on my love for Ducati. Their are no storage of cool bikes if you take a scroll. This post will be no different. A few days ago I started seeing this super load, extremely stripped down bike. At first glance I could put my finger on the original base the bole was built on. I found a few detailed pictures and the signature Trellis Frame was he dead giveaway. My search for the builder went dead but then the bike emerged on Jay Leno's Garage. The builder was able to break down the process of the build, the inspiration for the color, and specs of the bike.

By using previous model Ducati and cool Italian aftermarket parts the bike came to life, and came to life 85 pounds lighter. With the lighter weight and some tweaks to the computer system on board, power was increased by 10%.

The Ducati Superleggera red made the frame big the bike the focal point. The loud Red/Orange was also applied to a blocked section of the rims, allowing your eye to start and either end of the bike and flow through the design. One of my favorite features is the vertical LED headlight. Much cooler than that big ass stock bell  looking light.

Moto Gp Starts tomorrow! Recap to the greatest race finish EVER!

Glory!! Moto GP is upon us! This Sunday kicks off the GP Race schedule. I grew up watching all forms of automotive racing, from NHRA Drag racing, to NASCAR, but my favorite it Moto GP and AMA Super Bike. Something about the precision and speed makes watching an incredible experience. The GP returns with 18 rounds of excitement. This year's schedule is missing Indy. Kinda sucks the US went from 3 races Indy, Laguna Seca, & Circuit of The America's in Austin to JUST Circuit of The America's. Hadnt thoroughly read into why the tracks were cute from the schedules. Above is the greatest final laps in Moto GP history.. Rossi v. Lorenzo. Below is the 2016 schedule. I'll keep a look out for a good stream link.

Brand New Scrambler with Customization or Used Stock Monster?

Every time I think I make my mind up about which Ducati bike I want to purchase, someone shows off their customization of their motorcycle, or Ducati releases something totally insane. When the Scrambler was released last year.. Wasn't feeling it. They people added creativity to something I felt was eh and now I want one.

And then there's the Monster. It's just bad ass. Sounds beastly. Looks cool, has all the top of the line features. Etc etc. Still my top pick in the Ducati family. It just cost more than the Scrambler and I'm poor. 

Only difference is... The Scrambler needs some dopeness added.. The Monster stands as is..badass. Would you rather make something uniquely you, or have the perfect bad ass ? Sighhhhhhhhhhh.. 

Guess the decision could be much harder if you threw in the new Xdiavel Cruiser.
