Well, did Oceanside have any new toys? I just got done with the GT1000 article in CW. Could have used a bit more meat. You just can't sum up a Ducati like this in 2 columns to span 35 years plus a riding review. wtf.



It is sweet though.

You obviously have no clue of what you are talking about. Sorry to tell you but the V-twin is and will remain the engine of choice to power motorcycles in the USA. On the road, a V-twin can outperform any other type of engine. It comes down to the rider.

Naw man, the problem is not short foot pegs. It's the stupid routing of the exhaust.



You have GOT to put a full system on the bike that gives you some right heel clearance (while also getting rid of that hideous cow udder).



I love the S2R bikes but would never tolerate the interference on the right side.



I ride a '99 M900.

Wow, this forum is pretty rough. You guys aren't afraid to throw punches at each other.



cgarrison2k6, you are right that my experience was just with one dealer. Your local Ducati dealer could be a great guy.



I do have one general comment about MC dealers....the level of honesty and professionalism varies HUGELY. If you do not do your own maintenance, then you should definetely look around for the best value. Life is just too short to spend it arguing with a service tech.

Stick around, everybody is pretty much in the same corner. It won't take long to know when the "punch" is coming. Most of the outlandish post are there to "bait" the typical knee-jerk response.

As a boring, plain old S2R (800) owner, I'd like to suggest a very effective and cheap (free) mod:



Open up the owner's manual, find the part about the adjustable rear ride height, and use it! If your bike is like mine, then it came with the back end set about as low as possible. I raised mine 3/4" and the bike feels much better in the twisties. Before she was willing to take any turn that I had the guts for; now I'd describe her as eager. Eventually I'll see how another 1/4" or so suits me.



If Gabe complains about the taller seat height, just get him some platform boots.
