Cool. When I saw the topic title, I figured it was a post about Sandisk Ducati memory cards. To my surprise, it was about the bike instead. I must be spending too much time in digital camera forums. :-)

Nice shots of the bikes. I have a couple of friends who are motorbike nuts so they'll get a kick out of these pictures.

Jim, sounds like you need to step away from the computer.

Great pictures. Being a bit of a vintage motorcycle aficionado I have always felt that the overhead cam single cylinder Ducati engine (last pix) is a mechanical work of fine art.

Dawg you have captured the beauty of this Ducati engine design perfectly.

Back in the late '60's on the way home from high school, I used to hitch a ride from a buddy occasionally on the back of his Ducati 250cc single cyl. Ducati. The engine was the same as pictured, only 50cc larger. He had a modified megaphone exhaust on his and the engine note was music to our ears.

One museum I have to go to is the Barber Museum.

GW,

I went to HS in Western Canada...I'm thinking you went somewhere in the States ?

This high school buddy of mine had great bikes. After the Ducati he wanted a Matchless 750 Scrambler...wasn't able to order in, but he did get a late '60's Royal Enfield Interceptor 750, then a Kawasaki KH 500, 750 triples, then a Yamaha SR 500, then a Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica (750 I think)...then a '79 Honda CBX 1000 DOHC Inline six...then I lost track of him....

Les
