Seeking help in choosing a bike… (for my character) 😉
I love sport bikes. I got my motorcycle license years ago and planned to buy something fast and Japanese. Then I moved to Panama where having this kind of bike is a death wish.
The Husband and I were thinking about getting a couple of these…
…then we could go off roading, but even now we’re second guessing that idea after witnessing a few gruesome accidents.
For now, I live vicariously through my character without risking my life. The best part is there is no price limit. I can buy the biggest, baddest machine in the world. This is why in my WIP, Mr. Azarov rides the ultimate dream bike, a Ducati Panigale Superbike customized in matte black. Italian bikes are more his style and I love the somewhat indecent sound of the name Ducati. The powerful black bike is the modern equivalent of a black steed for my Byronic hero.
We had lots of fun with it in the book, but eventually he takes a passenger (the love interest, wink, wink). Now this is not a bike built for comfort, and I wondered is even it possible to even have a passenger on this model? Is that a cowl on the back, or not?So my second choice was another Ducati, the Monster, which is also badass and looks to be more street savvy. I like that the model name corresponds with some of the symbolism in the book, and it looks comfy for two riders. Aw.
So motorcycle owners and experts:
Please advise! Feel free to suggest your favorite model or fantasy bike.
What fantasies do you live out through your characters?
If you had no price limit, what toy would you buy? A boat, car, ultralight, personal IMAX theater?
