This would be the night we brought her home, being a person with very little patience and not wanting to wait for the weather to clear up, we drove 9 hours in a snowstorm on a trip that should have only taken 4. Bone stock, 5095 miles.

Step one, off to the dealer to have the 6K service done, new timing belts, carbon fiber exhaust fitted, kickstand bypass installed, ECU retune, new tires, and thankfully, completely detailed. As a bonus, when you spend a huge pile of money at the dealer, you get a free keychain!!!

UPS (or santas brown sleigh as we call it) came today... carbon fiber license plate bracket and LED sequential taillights/integrated turn signals. Might put them on tomorrow... Got full coverage insurance with theft and comprehensive which was much less than I expected, The wife wanted to get quotes before I bought it but i told her to hold off, I figured it would be ridiculous and was afraid it would turn me away.

That is a very nice looking bike.I always liked the style of those bikes.That single sided swingarm is killer looking on them.I had a brand new 1300r Hayabusa a few years ago and the insurance was only 38 bucks a month.Everyone said to get quotes before i bought the bike but i didnt and was surprised with what it was.It was full coverage just like my cars.

Lets you start the bike with the kickstand down as long as it is in neutral (just like any other bike, but Ducati did it different so you had to sit on it with the kickstand up to start it)

At this rate they will last forever! I've only ridden it to the gas station. Normally, a few thousand miles though.

This bike makes me drool every time I see it--my favorite color and one of my favorite brands. So jealous.

Cheers,
Kyle.

I'm now starting to doubt myself about getting the monoposto tail for it due to the rarity of the bike. I love the mono look though. I meant to put the led's on this weekend along with the cf plate holder but the wife and kids are in NYC and I came down with a case of the lazies.

Beautiful pick up! Love Ducati.

I swore I'd never own another motorcycle years ago. Ducati would more than likely be the only exception.

Looks beautiful BART! I'm not much a motorcycle fan but I've always loved Ducati's(only bikes I really like are FMX, MX or SX bikes)

Put the smoked LED tail lights in tonight, better pics later, didnt feel like dragging her outside.





I think that reflector may have to go bye bye...

Is it just the angle of the picture, or are the pipes not symmetrical?

Smoked lights look cool.
