Hmmm...
Maybe you don't get it cause you only had it for 12 miles?
Sorry.
I don't mean to be rude or anything.
But that was the first thing came in my mind.

Hmmm....

Maybe it came into our shop with 12 miles on it because the original owner didn't even make it home from the duc shop. Sad day for his wallet.....

I've ridden most of the bikes out there & I guess I just must not "get it" Ducs are about like Ferrari's.....a really cool to own status symbol, but you can probably go faster for a helluva lot less money. I can't remember one outside a factory duc bike or Ronnie Lundsford has that has won a race on one in modern times. The 748/996 is #1 on the most uncomfortable bike ever produced list. The modern versions aren't far behind in my book.

Actually,

You can see the Marchesini wheels off of it on a custom GSXR we just built that's going to be in the next Super Streetbike.

I like 748, 916 and 998 in Yellow.
And 749 and 999 in red.
Oh.
999 in dark (matt black) isn't so bad, either.
Yummm....

Well the wife would kill me over the SSR, and the Avalanche is great IMHO, mine doesn't have all the plastic.
Actually, I'd have a hard time selling the Busa..........but I've really gotten addicted to the V-Twin. And that Yellow 999...........:notworthy
