The Stable - when you know you've gone over the DEEP end

For whatever reason I've been lagging on my contributions to this site lately. It's partially because there are so many knowledgeable folks on here I'm not sure I've got a ton to contribute! But I've been a moto nut for years and have been building the stable over the last several. I'm now up to 24 bikes. And while I probably know a fraction of what many on here do I can say with certainty that I thoroughly enjoy riding them and have gotten to know most of them well!! I personally love seeing pics of these ducs (and other bikes) so here's a thread that provides plenty of them. If you're not into that you might want to stop reading right now!

I think I've got at least one pic of each one (albeit not all great shots) so here it goes starting from newest to oldest. Sorry they're not all Ducati's

Cheers!

Very, VERY nice! Thanks for sharing the pics!

Question about the MV; I've been eying the Brutale 800 and Turismo Veloce.. the RC models. Is it as good as it looks? No major issues or anything? These are so rare, that if you face an issue, you are basically at the mercy of the dealer. No collective userbase like for example Ducati has, and this forum - this at least here in northern Europe. Luckily our Importer/Dealer has a very good reputation, for what I've heard.

Cheers!

Those old "L-frame" Zooks are pretty cool. I'm all in on the bikes with fully floating rear brake caliper mounts as well. Most people don't even know how that set up works, or why it's even there. Then again, most folks don't even know the rear brake is on the bike at all, let alone how to use it.



.... THUNDER!

Thanks mate. I really love the MV. It's such a competent bike. Very comfortable, good electronics and i love the high revving triple. I have a dealer close by but candidly have not had any issues with the bike and I've got 6500 miles on the clock. The riding position is so much more compliant than the sport bikes and with the short wheel base it turns in well. For me what I love the most about it is the looks. Especially in RC trim. It's gorgeous. I upgraded the rotors and ended up putting a 200/55 supercorsa on the rear along with a matching front and really like the additional grip and taller sidewall. The 200/50 profile tire was a bit flat for my liking. I say pull the trigger. It's a rare bird and a hoot to ride. Had a 2016 RR when it first came out and had to have the RC. Hope this is helpful!

Thanks man. Yeah the older bikes are fun to ride and have a coolness factor to them as well. I'm always amazed at how far performance has come in a couple of decades, but i have just as much fun at half the speeds on the older bikes as the newer ones. A lot of the older bikes have such character that is unique to them.

That's enough to start a small museum.
