Yeah Bob Lunsford stock ducati parts unlike eximport that will only order the parts if you give them a credit card.... so in turn you are financing the parts for them then they will mark it up 33% and sell it to you.......

Ok enough about Eximports. I didn't start this thread to bash them. And if you talk to the right people over there you will be in good hands. I personally don't need people working on my bikes. But seeing as how it had a recall they had to replace it. It was in and out in 2 days which was fine with me. Everybody has different experiences with different dealers,some you like some you don't and some people are never happy with anything that a dealer or shop does. That's life adjust yours accordingly to avoid what you don't like.

Nice job, compared to other bikes you have ridden what do you think?
I rode one a year or so ago and honestly wasn't that impressed. Compared to my 999 I thought the 1098 was too stiff and I thought it felt heavy.

it just depends how hard you ride the duc.... remember the 1098 has the smallest gas tank with only 2.8 gallons + some reserve compare to the usual 4+ gallons of any japanese bikes on the road.... i average 105 miles on my 1098 during our sunday ride, and usually we all gas it up at a station before the ride and end up running out of fuel almost at the same time as my friends gixer 1000, r1, r6, cbr600rr, and zx10r.... so if comparing gas per mileage, the duc actually does pretty good!

It's definitly different than all the other bikes I've riddin. I feel very comfortable on it cuz I'm so used to riding small twins. Is it the fastest? No. Most torqy? yes.. The beat handling? It's right there with the best. Honostly I would be just as happy riding the new gsxr 1000. But the Suzuki just doesn't As much character as the duc. Everybody and there mom has a gsxr, r1 or 6, zx whatevers, or a cbr. Granted they are all fun in there own right. But none look as good as the duc in my opinion.

True
I know with my 999 that in a straight line the power differance was obvious but in every other way it would hang with any of the others. And the Duc looked and sounded better ALL the time.
The 1098 seemed sprung to stiff for my taste, and I honestly didn't feel like it had any more power then the 999.

i love my duc, the zx10r is the fastest, cbr1000rr the easiest to ride fast, r1 the best going into the corner and the duc1098 is the most stable and definately the sexiest bike out there, after all it was designed with passion by the Maestro di disegno.... the italians!
