So my 2014 Ducati Multistrada blew a head gasket. I discovered a coffee colored oil that was pasty within my oil cap, many have said coolant has leaked into my casing. The bike also doesn't start, as others said it's now hydro locked whatever that means. So rather spending thousands on repair, I just parked the bike in the garage and used the repair money to put a down payment on a 2023 Kawaski Ninja 1000SX. That bike is still parked as I can't get to the DMV until the end of the month to get it registered. With still no car, going on 17-18 years with just a bike, I've been taking the bus to get around Reno. At least I can ride the transit system for free since I teach at the local college being a rider coach. It's been a very bad winter in terms of snow, so I would have had to take the bus anyways for most of those days, Kind of shocked how expensive it is to insure the bike. I guess it's still classified as a liter sportbike even though it's a sportstourer.
