I'm not sure that they suck, as much as they are made for midgets. I can't fit on one to save my life. Maybe going to the gym would help?

My friend Roy goes to the gym 5 days a week and he gave up on his 999 after 6 months in favor od an R1200GS. If the riding position doesn't get you the suspension will beat you to death.

I would say all Superbikes suck on public roads. The Duc might be the best given the torque curve.

Well so far the site is cool, but the jury is still out on this forum. I do miss the ONE page format, going to wear out my clicking finger.

Last time I sat on one at the IMS the snap crakle pop from the body work sounded like a bowl of Rice Crispies. The funniest thing was the frozen plastic smiles on the Ducatisti

BTW, couldn't you find a little spot in the Manufacturer's section for Victory? I mean, are "Hunwick Hallam Motorcycles" really more popular than the soon to be number 1 American motorcycle?

Right then, just checking to see if I can actually post. And if there is a page 2 and 3 to this article, damned if I can find it.

That's a helluva nice bike. Ducati did good work here. Proof is in the financials if anyone has been watching their stock the last month or so. To bad the price is going up a grand for 2008. But if I was buying a street toy I'd go for the Hypermotard 1100S. Same great brakes and suspension, beautiful torque curve, much cheaper 2 valve air cooled motor to maintain, waay more comfy. Down side is you have to fill 'er up by the time you get to the end of the driveway.

Anyway, we were discussing the 1098...
