    I'd steer clear of the 848, uncomfortable as fuck to sit on, let alone ride in my experience.

    How hard is it to ride the 1098(s) on the street? Have you flipped over the handle bars yet? Supposedly the brembos grip like fuck. Contemplating an 848 or 1098 as they are in a similar price range as a first supersport post LAMS bike.

    I've got the same radial Brembos on my RC8R and they are just fine, really modular and powerful. Like any proper sports bike if you ride like a hamfisted muppet you'll bin it and fuck yourself, treat it with respect and you'll ride around other peanuts once you have some time in the saddle. That being said, aggressive sportos like the RC8R, 898/1098, R1, CBR etc are generally shit on the street day to day. Put a mountain road in front of them and they come alive.

    If you want a more street orientated bike but still want the v-twin note maybe look at a Monster 1000 or a KTM 1290 Super Duke if you want your arms pulled out of their sockets moments before death. Aprillia V4 1100 Tuono would also offer the same experience but with more electronic safety aids plus sound mental as a V4, most likely what I'd end up with if I ever moved on from the RC8R.

    Thread hijack over, get on the thing and ride already Chuck otherwise I'll be forced to swing by on my next trip down south and give it a properly Italian tune up for you

    Please stop posting in this thread. Every time I see the word "Ducati"I fall more in love with these things. Spent two hours in Fraser''s yesterday. Peter gave me the full tour upstairs including the "secret" bikes that '"wives don't know about but the guys come in to polish them regularly and occasionally take them, for a ride"?

    I'm trying to convince myself to just slow down in the corners on my comfy old "non AIDS" Honda 1000 Vadadero tourer - to avoid deaths but a bit afraid if I go with the 1200 Multistrada because "safer with AIDS' I might end up with faster deaths.

    I love your priorities Chuck. That checker floor is brilliant too.

    There is part of me that pines for one of these and kicks myself in the ankle for buying a sensible bike. I hate that part lol.

    I dream of having a classic bike in my new apartment later this year. The only real thing stopping me is working out how to get one up 14 levels.

    We had Ducatis, Aprilias, MV Agustas and other Jap stuff to but the Italian bikes were golden except for electrical stuff. The Ducati motors draw massive amperage when they go to crank and that seems to be the killer causing voltage spikes or whatever else which ruins other electrical components. I bought a brand new S4RS and did the daily commute chucking 25,000km on it in a year and yet the battery still died after 18 months. New one in and no worries.

    Knew plenty of Ducati owners who had electrical issues and most were always linked back to a bad battery or one that was dying. Most owners always have the battery on charge. Depends how much you ride. An old Ducati with low kms would worry me just going by my experience but really i feel that way even with the Jap stuff. All the rubber things perish quickly in that scenario.

    With the little one going to school near home next year i'm thinking of getting a Panigale for daily commute and leave the car at home.

    As far as Ducati ownership goes I have found them to be great. The main one to stay on top of is the cam belt changes. If you are buying used and they can't validate when done, probably do them. I think it's every 15k or 2 years? Sadly the 2 years seems to come up before the 15k.

    Is that on all models up until 1199/899 series when Audi took over?

    Looks pretty sinister in black, hard to look past a red one though:

    My passing fad is buying a 899 Panigale. Look nice and good reviews about being easy to ride in town, and they sound so awesome.

    I have no idea what that guy is doing, but if I was a complete wheelie newbie I'd be wearing a jacket.
