Motor Porn


  1. Desmodromic. I believe they have no valve springs, or at least very light ones. The vertical finned tube with the oil lines contains a driveshaft to turn the overhead cam (via bevel gears), and the rocker arms actuate the valves both opening and closing them. I may not be precisely correct, but that is the gist of it.

  2. I took the she-devil out for a run yesterday and it's still pure FUN to ride. It's my first Ducati and I've had it for three years now. Difficult to believe it's been that long of a time...which flies whey you're having fun.
