But your sig says you own a St4s...........Still, I'll NEVER use a Ducati as a daily driver/touring bike. I don't like major maintenance every 6-12 months based upon my annual mileage. My personal outlook.
I had an '08 Speed Triple with a nice Arrow aftermarket exhaust. I loved that bike. That engine is a lot of fun. I also really love the looks of the Speed Triple. To me it looks "tough" and I like the duel chrome headlights.Hey guys, I am a Ducati fan, however, am at a crossroads in my life. Should I pony up and shell out cash for an SF OR a Brutale? Should I go cheap, and go 1100 OR a Speed Triple......sell me on the Ducatis Boyz.
Yep. LOVE the bags for errands within 50 miles. VERY nice bike around town. I'll admit I took it on ONE 1500 mile trip. Less comfortable than my ZX14 quite honestly...despite the seat and bar mods. Vibrates quite a bit more too. Oh well...still love it! Want to buy it? For sale if you want it...unadvertised as of yet.But your sig says you own a St4s...........
Anyway, have you been to a dealership to look at or ride the SF? What are your initial impressions of the bike?
Couple quick updates. I hit the dealership last night to ride the SF. Its hot, no doubt. I'm interested in the comment about the "inside the engine" every 6-12 months. The reason being is I'll be using this as a commuter bike. I live in Chicago, and work in Chicago, so would probably put something like 20 miles each way commuting a day, city miles. The dealer said the same thing, its all about personal pref, and the Speed 3 can be beat pretty good. My only trepidation is the SF being "too pretty". Is that stupid? Also, looking at the Duc classics....as I never thought I would but I kind of like them after riding last night....2 cents boys 2 CENTS! GIVE IT!
Dude, you couldn't be considering a more different group of bikes.Hey guys, I am a Ducati fan, however, am at a crossroads in my life. Should I pony up and shell out cash for an SF OR a Brutale? Should I go cheap, and go 1100 OR a Speed Triple......sell me on the Ducatis Boyz.
