Does everyone remember the moment they first realized they wanted a motorcycle? or more specifically… a Ducati? What’s everyone’s dream bike?

the desmosidici is the one bike i want to have.

"Dream" implies that it's out of reach. Although there are many Ducatis that are out of reach for me I cant think of one that I dream of owning. There are, however, several new models that would be fun to own and ride - for me they are the Monster 1200R, the Supesport, the StreetfighterV4, and the MultiV4...

As for Vintage bikes the bikes I'd love to add to the collection are an Elite 200, and a '75 750SS

Easy, Supermono.
I think the bike was cool on many levels and being fortunate to work on one for a number of years I think it fits my number one based on just how cool it was inside. That said I do not think I would ride it much as they were expensive to run back in the late 90's finding parts would be a challenge.

1974 750 SS. When I first saw it I told people that some day I would have a Ducati. 30 years later I got my first one and it was a Monster.

I agree with others ..the Original .. the first Ducati I fell in love with , I made a scale model Hailwood about 40 years ago .
I'm loving my new 950 S ...a lifetime dream come true. Now if only she came with it .....

Here's the one that made me 'aware' of Ducati at the ripe age of 11ish.

To me, it was the coolest two wheel contrivance ever. I'd still love to have one but, that just isn't going to happen.

I'll make due with another Ducati.

No there is basically 1 --built for Mike to race by Sport Motorcycles for the 78 season, I was at the Isle Of Man in 1978 and watched him win the senior TT on this bike. I was fortunate enough to see & talk to Mike & his wife at the TT that year. I had him sign a card for me, & years later Pauline sent me a set of Mike's race boot's which I still have ----Mike also raced in LookWell Leathers, --& I happen to be the U.S. Importer & distributor for LookWell. ----The question here was what is your dream Ducati---& thats it. Mike was and is still the greatest Motorcycle RoadRacer to ever live----the only person that could even come close would be Joey Dunlop. They are the legend's & what everyone else can only wish to be----me included. I am still hoping that one day I'll be able to go to The Isle Of Man and race the Vintage race's on my 1972 BMW R75/5---

When I was 19, I’d ride my EX-500 over to the Ducati dealership on the nights I couldn’t sleep and drool over the illuminated 996/748 models through the window. A couple weeks ago, I finally picked up a clean, relatively stock 748E from its original owner. Still as beautiful now as it was back then.

Well the first Ducati i "fell for" was the Original 900 Monster and whilst there are any number of Dukes i would love to have in my stable, Walt Siegels PUMA bike with an 1100DS motor would make my man parts FIZZ!
