My First Bike ever, 2013 Streetfighter 848

This is my first motorcycle.

The Story:
I waited 20 years to get one because I was a young father and had other priorities. Took the MSF course and only ride to have fun. I do all my own maintenance and mods because I enjoy it. I can not ride this bike anywhere near its potential but at least I look good ... but who doesn't on a Ducati!

Model: 2013 Ducati Streetfighter 848
Engine: 849cc 11 Degree Testastretta
Pipes: Termignoni
Seat: Stock
Wheels: Stock
Accessories:
-DP termi Carbon Fiber Exhaust
-DP Tank Protector
-DP 14t front sprocket (7% gear reduction)
-Speedymoto Frame sliders
-Rizoma MA010 bars mounted inverted
-CRG shorty levers
-CRG Lane split mirrors
-Ohlins crossmount steering damper (parts from SF1098 used to mount)
-Evotech Rad Guards
-Custom old school Ducati tank decals
-Motodynamics integrated tail light
-Tail tidy/ fender eliminator
-all stickers removed
-Evap can removed
-D. Lofgren Map
-Modified Intake (my own work)
-Stubby(clipped) front signals

This is an amazing bike, everything I hoped for and more. Ride safe everyone!

Congrats and awesome bike with very tasteful mods. Wish I could afford 2 in the garage. This would definitely be toward the top of the list.

nice!

get some stompgrips or techspecs for more streetcred. :P tanks without them scream "don't really ride it all that hard".
