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.
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
