Experienced motorcycle columnist drops his Ducati

Its always interesting to read of other's experience about how they dropped their bike for the first time. This is Dan Neil, who covers motorcycles for the Wall Street Journal chronicling his experience while riding and dropping the Ducati XDiavel S in the streets of Santa Monica, CA. A fun column.

You have to subscribe to read the story! I don't feel like it, but I do believe in that sooner or later one will drop his bike!

Now, if only I can figure how he laid down a bike, even at a stop, without a scratch on it afterward!

Always a way, just takes a little thought.
It was a naked bike, nothing to scratch
