Thank you

I'm on the mailing list for BikeBandit, DennisKirk, & a few other places, so I'm constantly getting bombarded with stuff.
Hopefully someone here can benefit from it

FWIW the anthracite color matches my 2003 919 (smoke) nearly perfectly... except for the shine of course.

The RF1100's must be shipping hot and heavy now....They must want the 1000's gone pretty bad...

That'll work........

Wow, that is a great deal.

And the helmet I have, well, it is over a decade old and needs to go away.....

It's probably cus they are hooking up a forum somewhere or an owners group. They stopped carrying Ducati parts ages ago. Even from DNA they don't stockpile parts and order from Italy.

I was attempting to make a joke. It appears that I failed. My wife believes that that happens to me much more often than I'm willing to believe, please don't side with her......

Good, because I don't like it when she is right (when she is in disagreement with me), even if only once a year........







Disclaimer: I actually really, really like my wife and have tremendous respect for her. It took me two tries, but I got it right the second time.

Honestly Paco... theres nothing left for you to say, just admit defeat... Its hard to have a come back for that. The truth is always what hurts the most and truthfully you have crashed as many times in the past year and a half as the rest of the forum combined.

WOWIE!!!

I love & hate you right now...

Last thing I needed was to spend $200 beans after some high medical bills for both me & my dog this past month but I could not let this go. Kudos on the Ducati promo also. I tried entering my AMA discount but does not seem that did much if anything after all the other promos.

I have two helmets. One I use everyday on the commute. Gets handled, stuffed here, there, evrywhere, shuffled about, locked to bike etc. Its an old Bieffe I can harldy see out of the shield, the mouth vent is falling off, the chin strap looks suspect, fogs up, & the liner turns inside out everytime after removing the helmet. Snell M2000 though. The other is a newer Snell M2005 HJC for my leasure rides & trips. Nice helmet, does not fog, comfy, clear shield & it locks shut!

Can't wait to try the Shoei. Always wanted one but always ended up with something cheaper. I will retire the Bieffe & move the HJC to regular duty with the Shoei on journey detail.

My big head that I can never get fitted hats big enough for came in handy since they still had black in XXL (same size as my current HJC).

This last one wasn't really his fault. The suntan lotion (at least that is what he said it was) on his hand made it impossible for him to hold the grip (or maybe his hand was tired) in order to save his bike......

Talked to the dood. They have not updated the web site to correspond with what they actually have because they are "flying off the shelves". Luckily I got some sort of black in XXL coming to me. I guess its solid gloss instead of metallic. Whatever. Crisis adverted, excitement back on.

If anyone gets a similar email call them & try to get it switched to something else in your size ASAP because he basically said there will be no more.

ALos it looks like on the web site you can still get the white, gloss black, or gloss red in certain sizes for the $189 but call because that is the only way you will be sure they have what you want.

Mine shows shipped, with a ups tracking #. But, of course, today they have the TZ-R Sentry for $189.00, which I think looks better than the ORB. But, oh well, still a good deal
