The normal life of a motorcycle journalist is actually kind of mundane, as 95% of my time is spent slouched over a computer. But then there are rare days in which we are hosted in lavish accommodations in a cool location to ride some new bike no one else in the world has yet ridden. […]
Motorcycle.com Weekly Community Round-up!
Winter Riding, Ducati Movies, and Batman's Crotch.
Here are a few things going on around the Motorcycle.com Forum Network:
If the crash involved the bat-cycle, I’d have to say it looks like it could be Batman’s, uh… crotch armor… That’s not a weird guess, right?

morssolis of the 600RR.net forums wonders who the heck rides through winter? Northerners, feel free to be jealous of everyone in that thread who said “ya, it’s only slightly cooler out”. Where I come from, if you really want that motorcycle experience in the winter, look into a DUG bike. I wouldn’t want to go on a cross country winter tour on it though, and I’d definitely invest in some warm boots for every time you have to stop and put yer foot down into the powder. Here’s a video of a guy climbing over a small snow bank on his DUG.

I’d like to include my own movie that I am writing in that list. It’s about a young and handsome guy who works and blogs for Motorcycle.com who rides a Ducati Desmosedici RR to work. The movie mostly features this guy writing blog posts at his desk. That’s all I have right now. I hope to have it in theaters in 2010, starring Danny Glover as the content-editor, Joe Magro, and Val Kilmer as the lovable and awesome main character..
Here’s an extra interesting topic for you guys…
