Getting to walk by and look at this thing every day in my office...
Ah Stosh... but I do ride it sir, although whether or not I push it hard enough to say I "ride the snot out of it" is kind of subjective, that definition is probably different for each of us...No offense but it would be way more freakin' awesome to take that thing out on the road and ride the snot out of it like it was intended to be rather than just sitting around watching it collect dust.
Thank you sir... I appreciate that. This was not however, a self serving, fishing for complements kind of thread. Let me explain...Gotta admit that it is a purdy bike though.
Im weak for yellow too, and I feel kind of silly in perspective as I bought my sps in yellow 748sps fairing, but traded it for a red set of 748R, didnt know better at the time.Sigh... I thought we settled this a long time ago. Yellow is statistically the faster of the two colors... Geez. And I would add that George would be very disappointed in you two...
Go to your rooms this instant!
Glad it's not just me that feels that way. I kept my carby 900SS up on a rear stand in my garage and I can't tell you how many times I paused over the years walking by it just to LOOK at it, drink in the lines, the color, the notched single saddle, the way it looked in various lights.... always made me want to ride it, particularly in the middle of the long cold winter. I recently traded it for a multi, which outperforms it in every department, but which is not (to me at least) nearly as attractive a bike (and it's black). I'll take Ducati sportbike lines any day of the week.In the late afternoon, when the sun is just right in the back yard, the light coming through those windows makes the bike look so fucking awesome. The subtle colors bouncing off of all of the painted and gloss cf surfaces... I was "compelled" to take that pic. ey are not museum pieces. And every once in a while, I just look at it, and appreciate what a beautiful machine it is, and remember how lucky I am to have it.
I just wanted to share that...
