Opinions are just that... opinions. It is the opinion of this author that this bike does not suit him for a daily driver. It is your opinion that he is "jaded, uninspired, and practically bitter". How do you know he doesn't even like this type of riding? Just because he didn't give the bike a glowing review? I can tell you that I, too, have sat on the Ducati Streetfighter (not the 800). The very first thing I noticed was how the slanted seat made me slide, nuts-first, into the tank. I wasn't even riding it. This bad design, in my opinion, could ruin the experience for some riders riding this otherwise wonderful bike.

Dr. Sprocket walks into a Dairy Queen, grimacing and slightly bent. He tells the girl in a pained voice, "Give me a hot fudge sundae, light whipped cream, no cherry."

The girl says, "Crushed nuts?"

Dr. sprocket says, "Yeah, I'm riding a Ducati Streetfighter."

Dr. Sprocket. Thats just it. Its not a daily driver. Its a fast ride, sprint-through-the-hills in your free time, or meet up with your gf on a wicked looking machine, bike. And maybe a little more if you work at it. Maybe. And in its catagory its awesome.

That said, I should apologise. And I do apologise to you for over reacting in such a maner. Actually, you should feel free to have editor erase my comments. And believe it or not, I do appreciate you writing the article. Holy cow I got fired up there for a minute. Lol

Has anyone said anything about editing or deleting your comments? We don't do that at MO unless you make racist slurs or promote illegal activity. You are as free as the rest of us to make a fool of yourself as much as you like.
