Collected my bike from Italia Moto in Lincoln (UK) today. Big thanks to Tony & the gang for great service, nice people to do business with - highly recommended . Enjoyed a very pleasant ride back home, gave the bike a quick clean & took some photos.

Very nice Rudolf, and may I compliment you on your excellent taste! That flyscreen is very cool and I'd be interested in getting your feedback about how it does at speed.

Good looking bike. (I have a red 07 as well.)

I just ordered that flyscreen. I'm having mine sent to paint to match the tank. I'll post picks when it is back and on the bike.

Thanks guys. The flyscreen came with the bike & the previous owner had hand-painted it in a gloss red. Brush strokes were very evident so it's been rubbed down & sprayed with a black silk finish.

The weather was very windy when I rode home across a pretty flat landscape until I left Lincolnshire. I found I had to lean forward slightly at speed (I might have done 85mph if I had been on a private road!), but the strength of the wind means I'll have to report back on the flyscreen when I have ridden the bike in more normal conditions.

u're definitely gonna like, I'got mine one and a half month ago, and have already 7000KM, it was a new one... I can't stop riding it
got a little question : what brand is you're rear hugger/chain-guard? is you're chain-guard long enough to avoid the greasy mess due to the chain?

ride on!

Cheers Joolz. Yes, we must arrange to meet up. Enjoy your trip to Santander, are you riding there & back or ferrying to Santander & then meandering up through France?

I believe the hugger/chain guard is a QB World of Carbon product. I don't tend to suffer from lube being flung over the back wheel & swinging arm because I use Wurth dry chain lube. Most of the Ducati dealers over here use the same lube as do many of the Ducati owners I know.

I haven't had chance to ride the bike since I brought it home on Monday, I tend to work pretty long hours so I'll be hoping for some bonding time at the weekend. I'll report more after I've put some more miles under the tyres.

Hi Rudolph,
Yea.... getting the ferry to Santander.
I got a QB World of Carbon hugger/ chain guard. The first one had the holes drilled in the wrong places.... they didn't line up with the swing arm holes. The kindly sent me another one after I explained the problem... and the holes were drilled wrongly again. I ended up using a circular file which did the trick. The hugger appears a bit flimsy...yet to see what the long-term durability is.
