Looks ripe for hooliganism. I like the almost-ugly look of the thing too.

I test rode one and loved it. I wasn't willing to sit on a waiting list though. Plus, the local dealers are charging full MSRP and are wheeling and dealing on Sport Classics.

It's a great bike and perhaps there will be one in my garage in the future. Tall guys (longride?) will love it.

I saw one up in Seattle the other day. Looked nice. Very upright riding position. The guy was riding with a young lady on a scooter!

Very cool bike, if that's your interest. Not my cup of tea.

Fonzie, outstanding photos in this article. I'm wondering if you guys were up before dawn or still out and about when the sun came up. Either way, nice work!

Kevin, if it was my Mom, the comment would be: "it's all fun and games until somebody loses their license."

Not to poke at you, but how can it not be your cup of tea?

Looks like a ripper. I'll have to drop by my local Duc dealer and see if they have one. I doubt there is a waiting list here, so maybe they will let me ride one. ;)

Sure, you're right, this is an awesome bike, and any new Ducati would be a huge blast to own. But, it's "not my cup of tea" in the sense that with a limited budget, and when considering a new bike to buy, it wouldn't be my choice. If I could afford two or three new bikes, then sure...

The corn is quivering in fear!

I'm 2/3 the weight of the bike. I'd have to do some serious dieting to get the most fun out of the thing. Sure does look fun, though. I'll be waiting for a nice used one in about 3 years- maybe I can get drop some lbs by then.
