Riding the away from Southern Ducati came with a Three busted-up 1098’s sat in the queue outside the shop. As the explained, the monobloc brakes very easily pitch you over the grips or low-side you the tarmac. With those fresh in mind I rode the shop a few times, through a few and up onto the freeway.

There I riding the 1098 in a straight is an exercise in torture. With passing mile a thousand Ducatis cried out in pain. they said.
