Desmosedici RR

This thread should belong in the MotoGP forum. The bike is a race bike with lights. Cost is $73,000 plus a undisclosed premium. In case you are not familiar with this Ducati, read all about it. RR link.

The one Sun. I forget my camera this beauty shows up at Marcus Dairy. The guy who owns it should be there next Sun. I promise to take a few pics. Until then here are a few picked off the net.
BTW: the owner rides the wheels off this bike, he is NOT a poser.

So I was at a Customer Appreciation Track day for Eastside Motorsports back 2 weeks ago...
...and... well ill let the pictures talk for them selves.





















So Ya, I tried, but did not get to ride one. I will though as I know the guy who has the bike that says "Lash" on the bottom!

Let me tell you, one is nice, but 3 together... sick!!!!

Sweet Mike. I'm stopping by the dealer today when I get back up N.E. He has one on the floor. I'll take pics.

Evad, thanks for the pics. I didn't think it was you on any of the bikes ... you look like f'n Grape Ape on a freak'n bike!

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

You don't think Tom Cruise takes his out to the track to drag his knees in the name of Hubbard?

Maybe one of those guys in the pictures above was Cruise? I sensed high Theaton levels.
