Is it too early to talk about CM2012?
 
And so my summer activities are over.
Did the last 4x4 trip for this year.
Put my Ducati away for the winter.

As I fall into the winter hibernation, I am starting to count the days for CM2012.

Yes it's me.

I am amazed at how much the machine determined how I enjoy the activity.

I really really like to go slow with my LX450. In fact I detest it if I have to hurry up. Last year after CM2011 I stayed for few more days. I did Chicken Corner idling in first gear listening to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohn. I enjoyed that I did not have to catch up with anyone and was not holding anyone back. I routinely chug a long at 65mph no matter how fast the road is or how clear the traffic is. In town I rarely go above 30mph even in the 40mph. What I am saying is not that I like to go slow, but I like how the machine feels when it go slow.

On the other hand, on the Ducati I hate going slow. I have to go fast or I don't enjoy it. As a result and self preservation of my body and wallet, I rarely ride on the street. I just take it to the track and get my fix in a safe environment where everyone go the same direction, no cops, and no surprise sand in the corner.

Looking good and I agree with the track.

There's a quote I really like from Ted Bishop's book Riding With Rilke:
You can go as fast as you like on a motorcycle--but never hurry on a motorcycle.
I agree with your sentiments though. For me, speed may be dramatically different, but either way hurrying screws with my focus.
