Beautiful torture rack.
Actually, the 999 series was a lot more comfortable than the 916 series. PT recognized this and wanted the 999 to be a better fit for a range of body sizes. One example is the adjustable seat, forward and back. Another is the rear sets and maybe other ergo changes. In the book, "999, Birth of a Legend", the author (Ian Fallon) went into some detail on the efforts to make the 999 more comfy.
Posterchild 23, you are selling one outstanding machine, it grows more popular as it gets older and I can attest to the qualities of the 999R series of bikes, I have an example of the first year. I realized that when one day I parked next to an 07 1098 and the quality and attention to detail features were obvious, it looked to me like Ducati had cheapened the brand. I've had my 999R for ten years now and I have never ridden a bike like it, I'll never ride to its capability. However, I've had the itch to get on a bike with modern electronics, just to see what that is all about.
