Started riding a few years ago. First bike was a Harley 883 Dark. I got bored with it in a few months, and quickly sold it. Next up was the Monster 796. This was my gateway drug into Ducati. Great ergonomics, loved the L-twin sound... but it was still relatively docile compared to the inline-4 superbikes my friends were riding.

Fast forward. I traded in my M796 for a 2010 848 Dark. I was in love. The sound... the matte black finish... the sound! But oh my aching back... and wrists. I moved into the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, and city riding combined with my bad back were pure torture at times. I lusted after the Streetfighter, but the 1098 was a bit too rich for my blood.

When the rumors of an 848SF swirled... I was giddy. After it was officially announced, I sold my 848 superbike, and put a downpayment down for the 848SF. First I was sold on the black. As the wait grew, I started leaning toward red. Definitely, classic Ducati red. Finally, my dealer called and said they had a yellow in stock. No way did I want a yellow.

I stopped in and test rode a Speed Triple. I nearly bought it out of pure impatience for the delay in the SF. The more I looked at the way the pearlescent yellow looked in the sun, it sold me. Yellow it was.

I rode it over 150 miles yesterday, and I'm in love with this bike. I guess the 4th time's a charm. The ergonomics, the aesthetic appeal, the sexiness, the sound, the performance... I couldn't ask for anything more.

GSX-R to Streetfighter

I went from a GSX-R 750 to a Ducati S4R Monster (I miss it everyday) to a Harley Davidson Softail Deluxe to HD Muscle and Back to Ducati With my 2011 Streetfighter. I thought I could get into the HD lifestyle... but it's like the girl you thought you liked, but once your dating, you go back to the girl next door. I love my Ducati and I'll never go back...Welcome

Yellow is good!
One can live with any colour if you are into the riding as much as just how one looks.
Nice to find a bike that fits your style.
Enjoy it for what it is...
