Duc hatin'

There's a lot of Ducati hating in here.

Ducs are badazz, pure and simple. There are always faster bikes and faster riders. Ferraris aren't the fastest cars on the planet, nor are they the most reliable. I can crush most of them on my jap bike, but that doesn't mean crap. It's still a mass produced jap bike that anyone with credit or cash can buy.

Ducs are the shat, but I'm not a big fan of harleys or the dentists that ride them.

I dropped mine in the driveway when I just got it. Nothing got hurt, but I cut the vinyl "CBR" on the side. My pride would have been hurt had I not picked it up before anyone saw me. lmao

I dont hate them, I just think they are made for a certain kind of person. I think the Matte black and red 999r is a sweet bike but not untill I satify my racing urge will I ever buy one. Bikes right now to me are disposable and thats the way I like it.

I'm sorta with Twisty... I can't afford one..but even if I could I don't think I'd get one... just not my thing.

Too much money for what you get and don't get. Not too mention the maintance regement... I'll stick with my Jap bike for at least a few more years...

The Benelli is a nice bike but if money was no object, I'd get this:

At least the engines are something familiar to most mechanics and engine parts are easy to find.
