    Got myself a little xmas present a week and a half ago. My fourth bike (and probably last according to my wife). My first ever Italian. I gotta say, it's my fav one. Love the twin sound. Already fitted the termis slipons. Sounds amazing.

    Came from cbr600 f4 -> R1 CLE -> gixxer 750 -> and now duc 848

    Here she was at the womb.

    Some pix after the slipons. Still got the chicken strips. =) Gotta do a real photoshoot soon.

    Awesome! I had a Nicky Hayden Edition 848 and loved it. Ducati is my favorite brand, despite my being on a Triumph at the moment. Had 6 of them and loved every one. Ride safe!

    I can't wait for the new Ducati Streetfighter 848 to come out, that just might be my next toy :)

    For those interested in Ducati's, be sure to check out Ducati.org & DucatiFighter.com

    That's the one my girlfriend is considering. I had the Streetfighter 1098 but it was too much bike for her. Had it tuned and dyno'd at 149hp at the wheel and it weighed 2lbs less than an R6. Complete beast. The 848 is the sweet spot. More than you need, but not overkill.

    Ducati's are amazing. They are not always faster than the Jap bikes, but they are just DIFFERENT. A Ferrari might not be any faster than a ZR1 Corvette, but you can tell when you drive a Ferrari that you are in something special. The Italians just have a different approach to design...

    The Japanese take amazing streetbikes and then take them racing. Ducati designs race bikes and then throws blinkers on them and sells them as street bikes. Different means to an end and it shows when you ride one. It just FEELS different.

    I have been totally craving another Hypermotard 1100 for months... I regret selling mine. I want to track out the Triumph and have the Hyper for the street... My girlfriend just signed us up for a track day next Sunday, and we are signing up for a day in July at Barber...

    Get that 848 out on the track and let it show you what it can really do.

    Nearly everyone I talked to about the 1098 says the same thing, just "to much" for the street. What does your girlfriend ride now?
