So what mods have you done to it so far? You mean you plan on picking it up stock? You are a crazy bastard - you'll fit in nicely.  chug

Congrats on the new bike. Oh, and since this is the internet - PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!

$9k for an 1100... not bad at all. Did you also get the $750 store credit for for the Fall Oppor2nity promotion? Or did that just contribute to the cheaper price?

Hey rideserotta,

My dealer only had the 09 marked down to 10,700....so 9900 sounds good to me....but I traded in a 2006 victory hammer and a little cash....and a case of beer(I've dealt with this salesman too often obviously!)

I think I did OK on the trade....BUT I really don't want to know at this point....the deal is done and I'm happy!

NOW IF IT WOULD JUST QUIT RAINING>>>>> I could pick it up today....want to get it home before it snows!

That sends shivers down my spine, RR.   Cry  It seems like EVERY TIME I pick up a new Ducati there's a frikkin' blizzard I have to ride or drive through to get home.  I hope you have better luck.   waytogo

My local dealer charges $10 for pickup or delivery within a small radius (that I fit within). Maybe yours does too?

I really want to ride it home!  It's about 25 miles to the dealer and I could take some back rodes home...will have to read up on the break in "stuff"....don't want to over do it!

I've checked the weather and may have a 4 hour window this afternoon without rain....high about 45....

If not today I'll have to wait until Saturday...with the holiday coming up....OH WELL....Sunday's high is 62 and I'll have the whole afternoon with my new motorcycle!   

Let's see....what do I have to be thankful for....I was born in the time frame with technology for motorcycles....and have the means to buy one!

I'll bet that 62 feels like a nice 78 degree spring day when you get out there on your new scoot!

I don't know how you can wait that long to take it home...

If you don't mind....

What was the deciding factor(s) for choosing the 1100 over a 796?
Buying a Ducati is seldom rational - I'm just curious about which of the voices in your head said what?

My opinion, the 1100 is better in every way, except for being slightly heavier.

Hey stopintime....my decision of the 1100 over the 796....

I got to ride a 696 monster and an 1100 hyper demos....

I liked the torque of the 1100....seemed like it pulled strong from 3000 where as the 696 needed to be around 4000 rpms....

I would have liked the ABS on the 796, but no one around here had a demo so I couldn't find one to ride.  From there it came down to my local dealer had 3 1100's....all three colors and no 796's....he wasn't interested in getting a 796 with "old stock" 696's and 1100's on the floor....so I would have had to go about 130 miles to get one.

Also, since my Ducati Dealer is also a Victory dealer he was interested in my trade in!   I would not have been opposed to the 796, but in my situation the 1100 was avaliable and I liked the the low end grunt of it over the 696.  I also kinda like the silver wheels, I had them take all three colors outside in the sunshine before I made my desision and the sivler wheels and the red really POP out at you.....it looks cool.... to my eye at least!

All Ducatis want 4000 rpm. If they could talk, they'd tell you so.  The good thing is at 4000 it doesn't matter what gear you're in.

Best thing you can do is put a 14 tooth front sprocket on it. They should come attached to the price tag.

And oh yea, a full Termi kit.  waytogo

+1 I wouldnt even bother riding it out of the dealer's with the stock 15t front - get em to chuck a 14t on prior to delivery.

And I'll add my congratulations to all the others too.  You're gonna love it  waytogo.
This just makes an Australian wanna cry  Cry   You can get TWO M1100s for what we have to pay.  How much could it cost to air freight one to Australia?  $1500??  $2000?? 

$9900  bang head.  Spoilt bastards  cheeky Wink

I don't even have a ducati dealer. The closest one is 3000 miles away... And the only way to get there is by plane.  Who's spoiled now?!? Haha, just joking. About the spoiled part, I really am about 3000 miles away from my nearest dealer. An Australian dealer might e closer to me in fact. I should check.
