Slow Monday? Looking for your fix of motorbike related writings, articles and great photography?
You can have a look at older posts from my blogs (this one and ZZR1400 Touring) or… you can read a whole bunch of properly put together magazines.
Just head over to The Rider’s Digest the entire digital collection of magazines from 2012 to 2014 as been made available for free in anticipation of the release of the December edition under the supervision of Stuart from This Biker’s Life.
Just click the Shop section add all the free mags to your shopping cart and checkout. You’ll receive the download link on your email seconds after.
Get yourself a cup of espresso, a comfy chair and enjoy!
After a quick flight back to Portugal I’ve been enjoying some time back on the KTM and the only day of sunshine on the past few weeks.
Beautiful scenery just outside Lisbon and non flat land! Sometimes it’s nice to be above sea level.
Following last Sunday’s post with Multistradas going offroad – what if you want a Ducati to take offroad but the Multi isn’t really your thing?
Well, there are a couple of alternatives:
The Panigale Terra Corsa by MotoCorsa – the coolest looking superbike since Dave Mackay’s KTM RC8
The 999 Beach Racer built by a New Zealand Ducati Dealer from a 2003 999:
The Terra Mostro by Overland Motorcycles based on a Ducati Monster with XR650 front suspension, shortened swing-arm and a few extra mods.
or the Dutch versions:
By Affeto Ducati
or home made
The HyperIce by Ducati Indianapolis
Just your average ride on a Hypermotard SP!
Or on bog standard Panigale: Coast to Coast with an Italian Super Model

Bored on this rainy Sunday? I am!
Want something to spend your time? Here is a selection of wonderfully inappropriate looking Multistradas taking to the dirt.
This is actually my Multi on a beach in Norway
One of the great things of the internet is that niche content that would never make it to mainstream TV becomes available in small online channels.
This is one of those shows: A very entertaining 45min about Adventure Motorcycling.
On mainstream TV all you get is half a dozen shows about cars (some good some not so much) and BikeTV on MotorsTV, otherwise if you want your fix of motorcycle related media the Internet is your source.
The guys at Geek Media are on on their 6th episode with the great Ed March featuring as a guest and it’s well worth a look. I’m going back to watch all the precious episodes and am looking forward for some more!

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I commented about the new Multistrada for 2015 and how it would be great if it came with an improved TFT dash, cornering ABS, better panniers and improved ground clearance? (see:Here)
Well Ducati just announced the new bike and revealed the changes:
– Much improved color TFT dash with bluetooth conectivity with smartphone App.
– Cornering ABS and Anti Wheelie
– Cornering adjusting lights
– Iluminated Switch gear
– Better panniers
– 20mm higher ground clearance
I should have put money on my hunch!!
Check the launch video:
