Come to Jersey. It's rock. But without the roll.

Actually, if you fancy driving your Ferrari, don't come to Jersey as there is not a single road where you can enjoy it. Isle of Man is a better option (no speed limits! yay!), and very slightly lower taxes there too. Why did my company have to go to Jersey?


Onno
old Jersey is still nicer than New Jersey

You're entitled to your opinion my friend, but i would not classify what I think is one of the greatest motorbike designs of the modern era as a piece of shit.
Was it your first Ducati?

I used to ride a lot - had the James Bond BMW and then went stupid with a Bourget chopper 330 rear tire 124 ss modified 180 hp.

Wetpet, do not get me started again on these scumbags. Burn all their cd's and anything associated with that two faced homo asshole. If I had a genie, 1 of my wishes would be, well I am sure you can figure it out.

Pics?

I bought the bike off e-bay and had no idea how hard a hard tail is especially with that 330 tire. It has less than 700 miles on it and I bought it 2+ years ago with 500. All I do on it is let the rear spin in 3rd gear a few times and then go home

It needs to find a better home.

Let me please clarify, the piece of shit has nothing to do with the bike, i love ducs, it is the previous owner, bone head. However, since it was owned by various people, not just the boner, disregard my comments as they relate to the work of art.

yeah, i didn't want to say anything negative, but now that you brought it up, i don't know why people build or buy those things other than show. Incredibly hard and uncomfortable to ride. I can't tell scale from your pic but generally i find those things to be way to big. specially if you are not a really big guy. I see guys riding those things of average stature and it looks like a cartoon bike-way oversized.

i bought my bike new in 94 and i don't believe i have any digital pics of it. Shows how much i ride it since i got a digital camera. have to take a few next time i'm washing it.

No. My first Duke was a 999S - beautiful machine in the Fila livery that won World Superbike in 2005 & 2006 (I think). Wish I had never sold it.

Current Duke (that I actually ride) is an 848, but since buying a BMW R1200 GS Adventure last September I hardly ride the Duke at all. The GS has become my daily driver for the last year in all weather, all seasons, so much so I sold the Aston Martin, because it had driven only 300 miles in 4 months. It'll never be as pretty as a Duke but man is it a good bike. 50mpg, goes through any terrain in any weather and gets me in and out of the city in 20 minutes, compared to up to 90 minutes in a car

Ferrari's: 360 Modena, 550 Maranello
Ex's: Dino 308 GT4, 612 Scaglietti
The Rest: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Porsche 911 2.7s, Porsche 911 3.2 Carerra, Ducati 916... and the Land Rovers

Nice rides - always wanted was a GS and almost bought it til I saw the R1200. Not sure if I would get the GS1200 vs the 600 if they still even make it.

Before the R1200 I had a kick start 650 Triumph - those recoil kicks left a mark

She was dating Dr Dousche we met him at STL Motorsports C&C with two black identical 430's.

Not sure if you remember that day he mentioned he had to check with his g/f if he could go on a ride the next day. Turned out it was Erin and she dumped him about 6 months ago.

Here is a riddle for ya - I dated Erin for almost a year and now she is a lawyer at Boeing - age 35.

Now her sister who is well her sister so the gene pool is there - age 33 and a surgeon.

Which one you gonna choose - both are available and ball buster smart!

Gee, did someone get out of the wrong side of the bed or what?

Bono can't be all that bad if he rode a Ducati. Then again, the music isn't bad either.

RedTR, I wish you would let us know how you really feel.

Wetpet, someone woke the sleeping giant, eh?

Regardless, that's so cool to have the bike on display inside the house!

Silly man should have done that a long time - it's like shooting fish in a barrel.
