Ducati's New Scrambler

Probably not a bike I'll ever have the money to need ratio required to actually buy but this bike definitely looks fun! Ducati already has the high end covered, interesting to see attention given to the entry level and less than full race geared riders. I do wear lots of gear though... Oh well.

I try to avoid advertising like this. I know the reality... Once you get past that, it would be endless fun to ride around town every day or get out of town for a day/weekend. Engine is big enough to handle two up and some gear for the weekend!

Also love the fact that attention was given to electrical system adaptability. Having worked on wiring for both of my bikes, I can tell you that it is not fun. Sounds like Ducati are helping with some easier connection points.

Look forward to sitting on it and maybe even a test ride in the future!

The Landscape of Gravity by Kirsi Enkovaara: London Design Festival 2014
September 19, 2014 (7:42 pm)

Royal College of Art graduate Kirsi Enkovaara is exhibiting a collection of furniture with swilled colour surfaces at Big Small in East London this week, as part of the London Design Festival 2014.

One of the festival’s highlights for colour, The Landscape of Gravity collection is made by filling each vessel with water, then oil paint, and draining the mixture. The resulting pattern shows the effect of gravity on the colour, as it drags the watery mixture down and out of the vessel.

Homebuildlife subscribers can find more watery inspiration in our emerging materials trend, Aqua Effects.
