From one of the greatest writers of all time [insert cuckoo clock sound], an interesting article on a Ducati 900 Campione del Mundo Desmodue Supersport:

"Ho, ho. Thank God for these flashbacks. The brain is such a wonderful instrument (until God sinks his teeth into it). Some people hear Tiny Tim singing when they go under, and some others hear the song of the Sausage Creature."

I have that article and the bike to go with it.
Funny thing is when I'm about to do something on the bike that'll make your ass pucker, I always remember that story.

i loved the side note from the editor who lent him the bike to scoot around on and how he regreted doing it about 10 seconds after Hunter pulled out of his driveway!!

Pretty much the greatest thing ever written about motorcycles. And as a previous owner of a few 900 and 750SS Ducatis, I couldn't agree more.

Dig my new sig.

Any sentence can be made into a great quote:

you guys should read "Curse of Lono"
another Hunter S. buddy-drug trip where they go to Hawaii and pose as sports journalists covering a marathon.
no bikes... but a good read nevertheless (imho).

He put a gun to his head because he was dying a miserable death. At that point he couldn't write very well. The alcohol had finally caught up to him. Saw him on Tim Russert just under a year before he killed himself. It was quite pathetic. He could hardly string a sentence together.
