Unless you have an iron ass, wrists, back and have eyes in the back of your head, NO. However, great for splitting traffic though.
Der_Teufel said:I did it. I loved my 999 and while there are many many other bikes more suited for commuting I still did it. 30 minute ride. My wrists got stronger and I didnt really care about the mileage because I bought the bike to ride it. I probably rode it to work 2 - 3 days out of the week.
Der_Teufel said:Yes, los angeles traffic, 35 mile distance, took me anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes.
kozik said:maybe im a freak but my 749 is totally comfortable..i'm 6'3" 220...I use grip pads on the tank so sore wrists are not an issue. On the 996 which I use for long country rides I have bar risers and its super comfortable.
i dont understand the 'torture rack' thing everyone talks about.
but then again..I rode a rigid chopper for years and years so to me these ducati's are like super easy to ride.
