When you ditch the reflectors, send the mirrors packing also.  That bike is screamin for a pair of CRG's. Congrats on the bike.  I can't wait to read what you think about it.  Very, very nice.  

Agreed.

One thing I did notice is the nut crushing power of the bike. It's significanly worse than the 696. Don't italians have balls? I don't get it.


if the power is crushing your nuts, you're likely riding it wrong. please orient yourself 180° and try again.

It is with deep regret that I disclose that the bike is not mine. I can't even disclose where I saw the bike should the powers that be get upset. I will only be able to have my way with it once or twice.

Well, if you can only ride her once, I say damn the forum majority and their views on full gear protection.  Ride her naked to maximize the bodily contact.  Nuts to the tank and cheeks to the seat, I say.  Then, when the moment is finally over, stand beside her on the showroom floor and proclaim to anyone that dares to stop and look that you, my friend, had her first.  (for full effect, you should probably still be naked, perched like Capt. Morgan)

The latest cycleworld has a full write up on it.  I have to say, their pictures do it much more justice than the PR ones Ducati did.   I really liked the looks of it with a rider on it.

Interesting thought, but there is 650 miles already on her. I may be getting sloppy seconds (she is shy about such things) and I don't know how comfortable I feel about riding her naked in that case. I'll give it a thought, cause sometimes its worth it I suppose.

Ducati North America Streetfighter academy for dealers this weekend, Texas Motorsports ranch.Smiley


The other really nice thing that happened this week ducati announced both S and base models will be a the launch on the 22-23, so that means I'll be getting my base pearl white sooner than I thought. Smiley

Its a pregnant dogin bike.. put a few miles on her today...

Really a lot like the Tribute Bikes we build... A bit slower, but SOOOO narrow... Your knee's almost touch when riding it. Suspension is a bit out of tune, But Ill sort that out this weekend. Throttle response is pretty perfect...

REALLY need to get rid of that damn exhuast tho.. KILLS my knee to be turned out like that.. I need a few weeks to get caught up on some other work, but you never know what comes out of our lil shop...

WIll, I don't understand what that means?Huh?? Smiley Is it good or bad?

I've had a 910 brute, same deal with the pipes you do get used to it after a bit. MC mag said their's a 3/4" gap between heat shield and pipe. so that could certainly be adjusted, put a bit of insulation on the heat shield.
