ahhh Ducati... the Porsche owners of the motorbike world (which sucks cause 911s are some of my favorite of all time to drive). i will say this tho in defense... when i had my speed triple all decked out, i would get AWESOME dudes coming to talk to me. like old guys telling me tales of their youths and their Triumphs and how they met their wife on it or something. that doesn't happen with any other sportbikes... just douchebags. so i didn't mind it as much because of the difference.
