Most Ducati owners buy new stuff for their bikes to make them cooler or more desirable to them, not making them faster.
If you wanted the fasted bike and didn't care about a "cool" bike, sell your SS and get a jap 1k cc bike, it'll be faster.
Making a custom look for your bike is at least as cool as just bolting on some carbon stuff and pretending you're some street racer.
The best bike is the one thats just how you want it, mods or customizing are just a means to that end. IMHO that bike is faster than most folks will ever go on a public road and way faster than the squid that thinks huge HP on a dyno is the holy grail for a street bike.
Just bought questa regazza this past weekend. Never owned or ridden one until now, but after a short trip yesterday, I think I may have been waiting for it all my life.
BTW I love seeing some of the mods you guys have done - there's so many that I really don't know what to do first (if anything).
