Senator is One of THOSE Guys Now....

Yep, it's true. I've been looking for something different. Something not many people else had, would be great for the street, and could easily be taken to the track if so desired. After dealing with a lot of family stuff lately, come to find out my cousin has known the family that owns The Transportation Revolution in New Orleans, LA for quite some time. While on a trip there recently, I decided to check it out and found this beauty. Exactly what I was looking for....

Ducati S2R1000
6,090 miles
Desmodromic L twin

OEM:
Marchesini wheels
Remus exhaust
Showa forks
Sachs rear shock

It was in fantastic shape. Still has all the factory stickers on the bike.
TTRNO also threw in the 6K service so it has brand new plugs, belts, chain, oil, brake fluid, fuel tank, and a valve check. I love it so far! Lots of torque, a versatile riding position, and not another gsxr/r6 riding around.

Took me less than 24hrs to start modding her, and I'll post updates here as I progress. She is a beauty as she sits, but she's going to get dressed up a bit and get a little more power. Going to reroute and clean up wires and hoses soon. Tail chop is next on the surgery list...

As she sat when I bought her:
attachmentphp?attachmentid57613&ampstc1&ampd1339970789

As she sits now, with a nice wax and a face lift:
attachmentphp?attachmentid57614&ampstc1&ampd1339970789
attachmentphp?attachmentid57615&ampstc1&ampd1339970789
attachmentphp?attachmentid57616&ampstc1&ampd1339970789
