First Ride: 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100

  First Ride: 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Despite the 1100's extra power and weight, Ducati's newest Scrambler is still incredibly distinctiveThis is the Scrambler for grown-ups. Essentially, what Ducati has done is resurrect its previous-generation, large-displacement and air-cooled V-twin, upgraded its emissions reduction hardware and plopped it into an only slightly modified Scrambler chassis. It may only boast a tres passé two valves in each cylinder head, and yes, it is one of Ducati’s older V-twins, but it still packs 86 horsepower. More importantly, it only has to motivate 211 kilograms, so the Scrambler is among the most sprightly of resot-rods. Just as important, its maximum torque — 65 lb.

America’s infrastructure is in a sorry state. Bridges are crumbling, airports and seaports are falling into disrepair, and our roads are covered in potholes. This sucks for everyone, but especially Domino’s, which is so tired of potholes ruining its pizzas that it has taken to fixing them itself.

Pizza delivery and infrastructure repair go together like ham and pineapple.

Domino’s is also asking its customers to vote on which town to repair potholes in next. Customers can submit requests to pave their town’s potholes at Domino’s new pothole-related website. Any potholes repaired by this project will be emblazoned with the Domino’s logo and slogan.

This initiative is undeniably good for the towns where Domino's shows up. But the fact that a private company has to repair roads is a delicious indictment of the country’s infrastructure problems. Unless Domino’s wants to repair all the nation’s roads and bridges, we need to find a better solution than this.
