    GT350 Cutting into Motorcycle Time

    I’ve had the GT for about 16 months now, and it has curtailed my sportbike riding. Both are equally fun, just different. Last weekend I met some sportbike friends for breakfast and everyone drove their cars. We had a good laugh about how we used to do 300 miles after breakfast on the bikes and now we ride the cars someplace and then go home. Name:  C0DD80B0-B712-4CFB-8A30-8924D8A04F99.jpeg

    Same here. It’s super nice here in the mid Atlantic and I’m torn between the Shelby drive or taking the Ducati Panigale out for a spin.

    Just the opposite for me, all my track time on my bikes I barely get time behind the wheel of my new car.
    Had it since January and it just rolled 1,000 miles on the clock.
    I want to hit the canyons on our normal Sunday run but I'm afraid running with my sportbike friends will expose her to the rocks that my bike takes when we are doing battle out there.

    I decided on the bike today and the Shelby tomorrow. I just the Panigale back from the first service and brake recall fix, so now I can redline the beast and do naughty things. No canyons here but nice glowing roads in the woods. Not much gravel here but dead snakes, possums, foxes and other roadkill you have to watch out for. Also getting my Revit jacket and pants stretched out and broken in. The Panigale 1299s and Shelby both have that raw feeling and sound great. I’m glad I decided not to get the V4S. Off I go now to waste gas.

    I solved the problem by retiring. Now I have time for Harley and Shelby.

    I’ll punch out in two years and I’ll be the same.

    If I can get my RC30 sorted out I’ll take it out in the morning. Stuck clutch cable and I had to take off all the bodywork and air box to get it out.

    Well I rode 130 miles today and got pretty worn out. Tomorrow I’ll take the Shelby up to the mountains in Pa and eat lunch in a Gettysburg. Total loop miles will be about 220 miles.
