    Here is the progression from recently dropped turd to decent Ducati: July '10: Bought bike and almost immediately sanded and painted the plastics black in my garage so at least it was two tone instead of that hideous three yellows. Rode it like that for the summer. October: Dropped the bike...

    Good points. By pro I meant he used to be a tech at a dealership other than ducati. That being said, I don't expect to pay dealership rates to anyone but a dealer. This is my first service experience with a Duc... I am used to harley, buell and jap bike service so I am new to this and...

    Superbikes
    Thanks for the input guys. I probably wasn't clear enough with the circumstances or who is doing the repair... This guy is basically doing the work as a side job- while he is a pro mechanic, it isn't as if I dropped it off at a motorcycle shop. And as such, I didn't get an itemized estimate...

    Supersport
    Not sure about the headlights on the 458, but new Ferrari designs usually grow on me. The other cars in the thread, the 959, F50 and the 288 GTO are some of my all-time favorites though! Thanks fellas. :)

  10. 1998 748: Valvetrain noise 4000-6000 rpm more pronounced... Normal?

    Superbikes
    Just picked it up and the bike seems sound overall... Had the second big 10k mile service at 18k. It's got 21k now. I know the topic has been beaten to death but I didn't see any info about valve noise at specific RPM. What's your take? Normal? I'm going to be doing some long distance...
