Church of MO: 2011 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO Review

If it’s 2021, it must be time for a new Ducati Monster. In fact, it’s nearly always time for a new Ducati Monster. Since the original M900 of 1993, naked Monsters in probably 40 iterations both great and small have been a huge part of Ducati’s success. The beauty of that is, if you don’t like the new, non-trellis framed Monster that’s scheduled to appear for 2021, there are tons of pre-owned Monsters out there looking for a good home. Pete rode this one in Sicily ten years and six days ago.

Long Winter’s Nap: Taking Your Motorcycle Out Of Storage

Waking your bike from its long winter’s nap is one of those good news/bad news moments. The good news is that, if you prepared your bike for the winter, getting back out on the road is pretty darn simple. The bad news is that, if you didn’t, you could be in for a bit of work (or more) before your motorcycle is ready to ride. While it may seem counter-intuitive, leaving your bike idle without preparing it is actually quite stressful on it. The volatile components in gasoline will separate and evaporate. The chemicals used to store electricity in the battery self-discharge. The air in the half-empty gas tank forms a microclimate in which any moisture has a chance to work its oxidizing magic on the exposed metal in the air pocket. Any corrosive materials left on a dirty bike get to gnaw away at it unchecked. Ozone will age the rubber parts. All of these are bad things.
