hells yeah, I would rather have a 1098 over a loaded Tahoe anyway, I was just emphasizing that the 1098 is an "expensive bike", but very true indeed on it being cooler and cheaper than most SUVs.

I like the 1098s in black. It's a great looking bike. I've seen a red 1098s a couple of time at the Starbucks by the Galleria.

I just saw a tricolor yesterday at pp1, guy was with a group of ducati riders. I personally prefer the black 1098s.

it's funny actually, because I read a add for a ducati dealer and part of their marketing was to say "ducati's have recently become the weapon of choice for riders meeting at local coffee shops in florida"

made me laugh.

I don't mean to be a jerk but in my opinion Ducatis rate right in there with Harleys and Porches for being overrated poser machines.
It's true that Porches and Ducatis are fast and handle awesome, but it is rare to see someone get out there and ride/drive the outta one. They spend the big bucks, so they can cruise the coffee shop or some local hangout. Then they see another one similar to theirs so they grab daddy's credit card and run to the accessories catalog, to spring for some bling.

At least Harleys are comfortable in their uselessness.

I have had Ducatis for years, since my original 95 916, tyvm, and I agree some guys just buy them to pose, but I ride mine every chance I get, even tho its not enuf, fosho, but I dont consider myself a poser by no means, Its about the way they make U feel, the sound and the I love knowing my machines, and enjoy working on them, the 1098 is an awesome machine

Oh yeah! They are delicious to look at!

If I was gonna have one I think I would have to put some bodywork on and ride it hard on the track. That's what they are for.
Realistically, they are not street bikes and are completely impractical, like a Ferrari.

And Duc don't take offense, because I know there are exceptions and you seem to be one. But. you know what I'm sayin is true, generally speaking...

Could'nt agree more,
These things are purpose built track machines.
You just can't appreciate them on the streets.
I'm refferring to their SS models, not the monsters and touring bikes of course.
