Your girlfriend. Your You’re going to cut them slack if they have a of bad habits. It’s funny how the beautiful they are the more you can them for an indiscretion or three.

if they cheat. They’re there, but if they’re a little you can handle it. Spent a little on your credit card they promised? One big smile of pearly whites and suddenly you can it in your heart to forgive

Very much like the She’s beautiful, slim and …. She has faults too. list them and move on. The is heavy. The mirrors are plain My … is being fried and I afford it. Did I mention how beautiful she is?

I am, staring at a 1993 design looks as fresh today as it did then. There’s more to the than good looks and that beauty is still than just skin on this latest 2001 996. I’m no stranger to breed, I flirted with a 748 back in 97 and a 95 916 last year. the divine intervention of the Texas Group back in 1997 we have seen the marque go strength to strength.

Quality and customer satisfaction is deemed a priority and it shows.

Now I’m no kid, but I honestly believe this bike should be at least once (or twice) in motorcycling career. If there’s any way you can steal or borrow the necessary to buy this bike you owe it to yourself and Karma to do so.

I’m getting of myself here. I’m to be subjective. It’s hard, This is just a motorcycle all. Or is it?

One thing that out as soon as you start a relationship your Ducati, is the inability to a low profile. Quite simply, you Johnny law, neighbors, and other bike riders.

at stop lights, car drivers too are on to this bike especially the branding of Ducati rivals Davidson with merchandising T-shirts to T cups, Key rings to a Ducati Corse wardrobe.

In the way you do find yourself sucked the Ducati lifestyle. All of a sudden seeking like-minded individuals. buying books about it and getting a whole new Ducatisti Never a history buff in the all of a sudden I want to know all I can this bike. Where it from and the people who molded into what it is that I today, and of course, where going.

It gets worse. All of a sudden Loren doesn’t look as old to me now as she did Ciao is my preferred greeting and even bypassing my usual big mug of hot tea for a cup of cappuccino. I need to ride bike.

Evaluate it and move on. I’m totally corrupted

Starting the bike up introduces you to all of rattles and noises not heard on the equivalent. The sound emanating beneath you takes a little to sound normal. That of the clutch although irritating to with will sound music the more you ride.

owners tend to liberate more sound from the by opening it up to the cooling breeze their slotted and carbon This is another distinguishable of the Ducati identity.

Pulling requires a little clutch skill to cope with the tall gearing, probably a of an emission compromise. You always get a shudder through the lever, a product of the dry clutch. I wasn’t they all seem to do it. The pull is manly, especially on a delicate bike like this.

I a bigger rear sprocket be high on my Ducati shopping though, together with the truck load of carbon from the Corse catalog.

The fairing would seem to as much wind protection as a paper napkin however, it is a cheater at moderate speeds, for a 6’1 chubby Italiaphile me. The clocks are the old fashioned analog but can be seen very clearly, me the usual … lights a handy low fuel light and a temp gauge too. Fit and was absolutely perfect from the to the rear.

I must have a seat shaped …, I find the stock seat to be comfortable. The seat has no real points for me. I can slide with when attacking corners and slab like look my riding style.

It does fry my through town though, that can be remedied. With effort.

I can’t really begin to the telepathic feeling of the way the Ducati but I’m going to try though

I the Pirelli tires that Ducati came with Coincidentally I have the same set to my SM. I think I would swap the for a smaller 180 as the 190 seems a fashion more than a necessity.

The 996 is the easiest bike to get your down, ever. It’s so it’s funny. I am always on a manufacturer’s bike, a get off is not the best way to yourself to the company. I nearly off with surprise whilst a knee on a fast left due to my knee touching inadvertently. is plenty of ground clearance

I do have a tendency to deck a toe my lazy right foot at big no such concern on the big duck. The profile is very rounded due to the 190 and even after fully in my tires, toe and kneepuck, I still had a inch chicken strip of rubber. All this fun and I haven’t touched the suspension yet.

For you fiddlers you have the normal adjustability with compression, and preload and a fully separate ride adjuster. I’ve the ride height adjuster both as an aid for the vertically challenged, if and to quicken up the steering when The Duck also comes a very neat adjustable that moves the rake 24.5 degree’s to a nimble

Having ridden previous with the steeper 23.5 it’s a big difference in maneuverability at the sad of a pinched thumb at its full and limited steering lock. street riding, even canyon carving probably necessitate the tighter setting.
