Better see if you can buy one ahead of time cause with these big U.S. budget deficits by the time 3 years rolls around these bikes will cost a min $20,000. Because the Euro will appreciate against the dollar big time. Econ 101 Buz. The price of electing an idiot to the white house. You still want to vote for George?
Oh, Man, that GT is sweet! Here I had taken Ducati off my list of bikes to lust over and they come with the GT 1000. Oh well I have 'till September '06 to get ready for it. If it releases on Sep 17th I'll have to get it since that's my B-Day. WooHoo!
You're actually a republican, right? That's interesting. You're actually kind of liberal. I've said it before, I'm waaay to the left, but you're okay. I actually like your posts. I also like Sarnali and Seruzawa. They're smart and funny. I like motorcycles. That yellow one is sweeet. Saw them all at the Long Beach show. I've never before seen such beautiful, modern iterations of a classic style. Many companies do the retro thing pretty well, but these bikes took my breath away.
Mr. Terblanche's (sp?) efforts at Ducati have been controversial to say the least. And unfortunately a lot of hatred is vented towards his little dog as well. The Sportclassic line, from what I've read, is Pierre's doing as well. And to say the least, they are freaking sweeeeeet. So where does the jury stand on Pierre and his Ducatis.
I liked the 999 when I saw it in person far more than the magazine images.
I loooove the weirdo Multistrada.
The new STs may be better performers, but the bike's head fairing looks like it has a throbbing headache.
The Sportclassic line ROCKS!
Ducati has become a weird, interesting, and better performing. BUT, outside of the Sportclassic, Ducatis don't stir anything within me. The 916/996/998 was an emotional experience.
Oh, I almost forgot, I don't care for the Monster line. So I pretend they don't exist. You may choose to see them. I don't.
