I was at the AMA SBK last weekend at Barber and the Ducati rep said late May delivery in the US. Accessory order forms s/b out next week.

Last time I spoke with the dealer (when he called to offer my GT1000 in red) he also said late May. :think:

Got my leg over one

Got my leg over one last Sunday and it felt good.....GT 1000 that is ...but they would not give me the key...no test rides. I must say that it feels like the perfect riding position. I like the way the header pipes are tucked in and wont melt your waterproofs when your feet are down like on my ST3. I dont dont like the way the back end is kicked up. If I buy I will move the shock mounts back. I dont like the way the silencers sit so wide, this is because the Cats are in the silencer, may not be in US models. The seat is perfect and although the pillion part looks a bit short it is in fact not, and she fits in (the wife) just perfect. I hate the mirrors but dont get me wrong this is a nice bike.

Any other pics? How would you compare the ergos to the Monster, Other Sport classics, and other naked bikes?

Was this at the Stafford show or at a dealer? They do not have the show gallery posted as of yet where the GT was launched last weekend

This was at the Stafford show. told that it wont be in UK dealers till June.
I had a 2003 M1000ie and this bike feels more comfortable/natural to me than the monster, but I would prefer the brakes that are on the monster. I suspect that the bike on show may not have been a production model as it was fitted with german pirelli's. Have a few pictures which I will post tonight.
