1198!!!

new motorcyclist shows up in the mail yesterday...
Ducati now has a 1198?!
So... 170hp, 97lb.-ft., 373lbs dry & only $16,500?! And for $21,750 you get Olhins & Marchesini. Too bad I couldn't afford the insurance.

While riding my bicycle over a mountain peak this week I saw a couple chubby dudes in full ducati garb on D848s lighting each other's cigarettes; as I rode by without stopping. That was cute.

The older I get, the less I get excited about them. Maybe I need to test ride one to understand the hype. They are pretty thou...

Wow, that sounds about right!

It was such a perfect image I had to share with my WT bros.
Seeing them sharing cigs launched me into outerspace.

i rode the duc s4rs and 848. the s4rs was fun and ballsy, the 848 was uncomfortable as hell and managed to make 130hp feel like nothing. it was a strange experience. sitting on them while riding i knew that i was on what appeared from the outside to be very sexy techologically advanced machines. if someone put me on one without seeing what i was riding i would have guessed i was on a home made lawn tractor powered moped.
