My ST3 is for sale

OK, now that I have actually got the bike running I am going to sell it. I have to admit, after riding it the other day, I do now realize now why they are well liked. This bike is FAST and I had a great time rolling through the twisties and splitting traffic the other day and contrary to the headache I had with the valve, it is the primary reason I am selling. I am a bit frustrated by the bikes need for attention, but I realize, as I have a couple of times in the past, I just get a little nuts on the sportier bikes.

I bought another Harley yesterday and I know that they are relatively slow and frankly has been the only bike I can ride sanely over time. I always seem to ride bikes where the BIKE likes to ride, and the Ducati wants to HAUL ASS!!! Moreso than even some full on sport bikes I have had. Posted in classifieds.

I know what you mean. My bike creeps up to 85 without even telling me all the time! It just feels so right at that speed!

Yeah its funny, it really likes to run. Its just not happy putting around.

I just went and rode the Sportster and that thing is a master putt putt. I used to laugh at the Harley guys but now I am one of them. The irony is tragic and hilarious

LMAO..... I took the Ducati to work about 10 minutes away trying to figure out the little misfire hiccup and rode it like a hooligan and man its fun!

The only saving grace for the Harley is that the GF likes it. She just LOOKED at the Ducati and said no way I'm getting on that thing!!

Just don't adopt their choice of riding gear. Keep your full face helmet and other quality riding gear.
