Default I think I got bit! Been 15 years.

Had the opportunity to take a very brief ride on one of these today

http://www.ducati.com/en/bikes/my2007/ModelPage.jhtml?family=Superbike&model=SBK1098 STRICOLORE-07

Sorry didn't have my camera today. This Ducati I would put up against any rice burner! Owner has several motorcycles and this one was simply awe inspiring. The exhaust note is unlike anything on the road. He also has a Honest Charley bike that has a Ford flat head V8 same color as the one in the link. http://www.honestcharley.com/V860.htm

I'm sure Harley owners would argue, but the Ducati, IMO, has one of the most beautiful sounding exhaust notes on two wheels. Not too loud and not annoying.

Wrong! I'm a Harley owner and would love a Ducati in the shed. I mean, I would love to have a Ducati in the shed.

Just1more, your lucky to have had the opportunity to ride one.
