Last year two guys I ride with bought ST3's. They are both "older" experienced motorcyclists. Both had previous VFR800 experience. Both traded in their ST3's with extremely low mileage and in less than a year. One guy traded on a Victory 8 Ball?? and the other traded on a Triumph Bonneville. Go figure. I guess they just don't know what they want. Why should I care? I don't know why but it sure makes me wonder.
It's cool that Ducati is doing something with Old Red. Gary put over 100k on that bike in about 2 years time. I got my yellow one about a month after he picked up the red one and am embarrassed to admit I have nothing like that kind of mileage on mine.
