Got my puck down four times on my 3rd track day. I know it’s not the highest goal to have, main goal was much better body position and being comfortable in the corners. Kissing my right pick came as I improved.

New (for me) bike arrived

Needs a new battery and some cosmetic care. Hopefully will take me to work and back daily, plus on some more spirited rides.

Two track days and a week at East Coast Meet. Tire all done. What a blast!

If you haven’t considered coming out to Tennessee/North Carolina for ECM, stay tuned to the meetup section for next years iteration.

A recent picture with the bike washed, the ugly top box and holder removed and a couple of Ducati lessons learnt. A lot of the myths have proven to be true, both good and bad. I am still very happy.

I'm curious. Have you posted elsewhere in the ST forum about the good and bad stuff??

Nah, nothing major. I just find it interesting that as I have a bit of experience with bikes, but this is my first Ducati, that many of the "features" of the brand have already shown up.

Pros definitely the engine, sound (except for the clutch), overall quality, balance of the bike, the feel and involvement of riding it, which is difficult to describe, and the surprising practicality.

Cons so far... Small electrical stuff like "check engine" light coming on and then disappearing after next start, vibrations and buzziness on occasion, the tank filler cap second click that I learned the hard way. Also yesterday was an unusually warm day and I was riding in stop and go traffic after work, and I actually had to check if the bike/engine was on fire as it was just roasting my butt and legs.

All in all everything could be expected. When considering getting a bike for commuting, I was also looking at buying a Honda CBF1000 for the job, and I am certain none of the features mentioned above would have been present in that machine. I am really glad I went the Ducati way, makes you feel alive.
