New Member 999R

Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself to the community. Just picked up a 2006 999R locally with around 8K miles. I sold my Aprilia Bol'D or and would like to think I upgraded to the 999R. Weather here in Houston, and in general has poor so haven't been able to ride it. The bike is completely stock and in pristine condition. Looking forward to riding and gathering knowledge on the forum. Robert.

My goodness, what a blast to ride. Did 200 miles on Saturday in the Hill County, really the first time I actually got to ride the bike. Ducati built this bike right, and love all the little details. From the carbon fiber panels, the magnesium sump, titanium rods and pistons, marchesini forged wheels, no rear sub-frame, etc. this bike is extremely lite and easily flickable. Come alive at 6K RPM's, 4th gear is for sure my favorite gear on this machine. I am beyond impressed with this bike, and it has exceeded all of my expectations; however after 200 miles I couldn't wait to get off the damn thing. Popped 3 Aleives when I got home.
