Another Hog or Harley And A Duck or Duke

Another chautauqua. The Rebel bikies, en masse, have just had 24 hours in Newcastle. Someone said the distinctive note of the Harley engine was put up for patenting but was disallowed. Pity. .
On the other hand, beauty and technology from Bologna, Ducati Supersport 750 of unknown vintage, grounded, impatient. The banter goes this way: beautiful soulful v twin, quickest soul on wheels, mechanical sensuality! .
Films of interest. "The World's Fastest Indian" (Indian motorbike) is a very likable low-key tale taking us to Bonneville in retro times and of events leading up.
And a Ducati 996 goes Desmo prestissimo in a super chase in Matrix Reloaded.
