a Duck with a Mohawk, no less.
most excellent.
Thanks, Zouch. The Duck goes with me everywhere. She sits on the dashboard, keeping an eye on the road, along with my dash cam.

I'm okay with the duck thing, but the hash tag/Facebook part of it went too far. The originator got all high-feeling, monetization and drama ensued, and it turned into a shit show.

If you wanna duck, duck. But I'm opting out of the social media aspect of it.

I have no Facebook or Twitter accounts, so I won’t be joining in on that. I really don’t care when anybody, except me, is taking a crap, or even where they were when they were ingesting what made that crap…

But the duck thing seems pretty innocuous.

Yes. I have owned three Ducatis ('99 900SS, '03 999, and '11 Multistrada 1200). When I got the 900SS, which had a two-valve motor, I got DESMO-2 for my license plate (for those who don't know, "desmo" is Italian for 'valve'). I adopted it as a gamer tag, and then as a forum name. It kind of stuck.

That’s cool! I bought an ST4 in ‘99 and made my email address duckmanst4, current bike is a Scrambler.

Fixing stupid....
In the winter I miss my 1198. When i am in stop and go traffic in the summer, and it is high 90’s, i do NOT miss that under seat exhaust….

i got a duck a several month ago on my ocean blue JLUS. I was really sad when i ordered my 21 4xe, and that was not an option anymore.

the duck police must agree, because i have had my white JLUR 4XE for a month now, and i am not getting any duck action.

I also have a Ducati! An S2R 800. I wonder how many Jeep owners are also Ducati owners? All I can say is we have good taste! =)

I miss mine. I have had 750 Pantah, 750 Paso, 851 and a 996S. I stopped street riding after getting hit twice sitting in traffic. I kept the 996S even after I quit riding, because I just liked looking at it. After five years of riding it around the block periodically to keep everything from rotting on it, I decided someone else should use it like it was built to be used.

By the way, the Paso was the best handing bike I have ever ridden. It just had no power and the crappiest carburetor ever put on an engine.

I finally got Ducked 👍🏻 went to Padre Island for several days and came out to go to dinner and found this tucked into my door handle

Was not sure of the etiquette involved in this so I just snapped a few pics and then on our way back right before we left the island I Ducked another Jeeper, I kinda wanted to keep the duck but decided to pass it on.

Also lots commented on my cool new hat
