Default New wallet drain...

I was looking for a used Ducati. I was negotiating one just like this, in Washington state, well sorted. And red.





I knew about, but wouldn't even bother looking for a Paul Smart Limited Edition replica (looks like the Imola GP winning 1972 750SS that made a name for Ducati in modern racing, ridden to victory by English rider Paul Smart); only 2,000 ever made, and only 500 imported to the US in 2006. Probably 300-400 now. Fat chance. It was exactly what I was looking for: retro looks, modern suspension, frame, engine, electrics, ECU, race pipes, best suspension available... naw, not gonna find one. Won't happen.













I literally fell into it. I couldn't say no.

There is literally nothing on the planet like an uncorked Duc at full song.

Did you damage the bike or hurt yourself when you fell into it?

Congrats on the new toy, Bill.

Red Ducs are so cliche, wonderful score Bill! And this is the perfect time in your life for this bike to fall in your lap.

I understand the wallet drain thing and I now understand the motorcycle thing. Nice bike.

They sound good, but an RC51 with a set of Sato Banzais wins hands down.

Awesome Bill! Very cool. Bring it to a meeting when the weather gets nice so we can drool over it.
