All Ducatis are cool. Fancying bikes more and more as I get older and less wise.

Don't do it, unless you've had bike experience, the older virgin bikers are accident fodder.

I've had motorbikes all my life, about 20 years ago I called it a day and got rid of my Kawasaki GT750 which I thought was rapid, that was until my boss turned up at work with his Ducati 9**.

FFS.

I was thinking more of a 125 as an alternative to the train than some sort of two-wheeled missile.

Snowcat (YouTube) is having a lot of trouble with his 2015 model, but it does look tidy when it running.

Me too. Really, really want a Ducati 749.

This Monster though I have looked at on a few occasions. The scaffolding under the tank I'm not so sure about :/

ducati monsters ! a bit "notchy and grabby " round town and at low speeds , nice but not my cuppa .

a mate has a monster 1000 ds and its a bit rough round the edges to ride although in immac condition and well maintained .

the aprilia tuono 1000r or factory is a much much more polished bike , looks good well built very powerful and smooth for a v twin

I am a a bit biased as I ride one and its my fave weapon of choice .

Definitely the first bit. They make a fabulous noise.

Probably a bit of the second sentence too but I know that I would end up under a lorry, so it's probably best that I avoid getting one.
