my first ST trip - may 2001

it was a tour, 1200+ miles in 2 days. and it was sporty. so i guess it was sport touring, right? looking back i find it a little amusing that i did it. hope you do too.

sorry for the image quality, it was a disposable 'panorama' printed at the drugstore. bad then, and already fading a bit before i scanned them.

in may 2001 i bought a 1998 916 over the internet from a guy in phoenix arizona, and rode it home. here it is in sedona...

Great Stuff! Let me see if I got that right? You did 1200 miles in two day on a 916? Isn't the nickname for that bike the 'Torture Rack'? Pics look great despite being a little blurry- Panoramics are great when travelling. Any more? Done trips since?

yeah phoenix to san francisco in two days on a stock ducati superbike. and not exactly the shortest route possible either. that little tank bag was the extent of my "gear".

the 916 is a track-only bike now, but i often do 500+ mile one day rides on the SuperSport. SF-Santa Barbara-SF along the coast. or SF-Red Bluff-Eureka-SF. here are two pages i made for my SO who lives back east so she could associate images with my stories...
