Hi Guys, sorry for my late response, have been more active in the ducati1199.com forum lately...

to reply to some questions, the handling is not like the "mountainbike" feel on the monsters, but i am still totally amazed of the handling! I mean it is a superbike!!! The 1198S or 916 i rode in the past (friends' / testbikes) felt like railway vehicles compared to this one!

@Gunter, yes, that was me! Do you still have my business card? Shoot me a pm, let's go riding. I still have 2 mm chicken strips left, i'd need to get rid of!

Thanks for the welcome to all of you!

I'll be interested in hearing about AMP, as none of the bike track day groups will run it as considered unsafe.

haha, unsafe? i bet it's safer than the nuerburgring.

maybe the 90 deg. right turn after up the hill, where my tires are...

i've walked around the track in march and must say it is a need setup! way more challenging than anything around i guess...

will definitely set up the go pro!

so who's in for a ride tomorrow around 11?
