Ducati coating - restore rescue and re-protecting by KC
If ever you have a dream, what would you be dreaming about?
"You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one"
the journey of a dreamer!
the finest ever make by italian .....a class of its own...like lambroghini and ferrari
has been very famlous for street bike, but not off roader and tourer.....came one day...the engineer managed to put 4 bikes into one .....came birth of Multi-strada
the day came when the rubber hits the road...abroad in China
a 23 days of adventure covering 5,168 kilometres. The expedition is to prove the reliability of the Ducati Multistrada to survive the gruelling task demanded of the famed Italian brand. The trip will start from Tianjin, from which the convoy will travel to Shenyang, Harbin, Heilongjiang and ends at Inner Mongolia.
this is one of the many tour.......since then, it has been to many country and miles
that 24 days ..... they group went through fire and hell...through stroms and rain....finally return home
2 years later and after many many trips later.....one day on our way up to thailand...opppppssssssssssssssss
we went over lander and ............... it was scraped by a road cone
wheels full of dirt and chain lube.....one of the most difficult to detail
My aim is to correct the hurt and heal the wounded ...................protecting for many many years and trips to come
i have to face with soft paint...but not that soft over all.....plastic parts....mostly unpainted and clear shield ....
many many engine parts, comprises of allow and stainless steel
I did A 4 series in the morning for 10 hours and come another mini giant!!!!!!!!!bearing of tired body, aching muscle and tired eyes....(detailing a white car & strained eye sights)
Menu for the day!
