Hey guys,

I'm just curious what kind of answers I'll get, so go ahead and tell me what your favorite thing(s) is about owning a ducati superbike!

the nation of manufacture, the looks, the sounds

It's ITALIAN red, and you can't ignore it.
It's got a very fluid, harmonious shape.
Not as angular as many of the latter-day
"Transformer"-style bikes, from all nations.
Then there are the sounds. Of both a
PERFORMANCE V-twin (as opposed to a
Milwaukee beer-burner), and the dry
clutch. Have had my 749 for 3 years,
and I still get that well-meaning comment,
"Boy, sounds like that thing's gonna' fall
apart at any minute!"
Still very happy with my European 3/4-litrebike!

Looks did it for me ...

There is no uber performance, reliability sucks, manufacturing sucks, some technical design aspects are questionable but then when you look at it and when it runs well damn is it a FUN bike.

It's everything I feel coursing through my body when I ride my Bayliss 998 and the zen state I feel when I just look at it. And, yes, those things do happen for me.

The power, handling, brakes, looks, clutch rattle, exhaust song in Termi's, how it feels when you press start.

That's funny :D. I like the handle, the nimbleness of it and to work on it I love to take it a part and just admire the engineering factors.

The way it feels

I get on my bike as a daily escape away from the troubles of the world and let go. I don't have to think about any thing but the changing of the gears and becoming one with the bike. It's just beautiful.

I love all our bikes, because they are all Ducati's. They are all different colours and models, but they are all beautiful, all sound magnificent and most of them go beautifully, apart from the one that is a bit broken (and some cable ties, a hot glue gun and a soldering iron won't fix what ails it!)

The one that is a bit broken actually attracted me to my husband all those years ago. Scene at a track day, some people were using the track day for practice for an upcoming race meeting. I heard this bike out on the track it sounded wonderful. I asked my best friend "whose bike is that" she told me but I didn't know him. I wasn't to meet him for several more years because that day my friend fell off, got run over and all attention went to her:(. I forgot about that magnificent sounding Ducati and its rider - temporarily.

So, apart from their aesthetics and sound, they also inspire passion.

I like my bikes' quality, but more importantly I love the ducati feeling, it just suits my personal riding style. I don't really care if its exclusive or Italian or anything (in fact I don't like the extra attention). I've ridden everything else and the ducs just feel right. If jap bikes felt like ducs I'd ride japanese.
