Well, I just picked up my first Ducati. Bought a 04 ST3 off ebay last week, and two days later took off for the Blue Ridge, Deals Gap, etc. I rode with my dad and brother for the last week and put 2300 miles on it this past week. Rode the entire Blue Ridge from Cherokee to Skyline Drive in VA. I LOVE IT! I also have a HD Road King in the garage that I'll be putting up for sale!
