NOPE !!!

Thats a sweet bike Dave, I thought it was going to be bright Gold frame, like the top of the forks but, it looks the same colour frame as the original on my 900ss.

I like it a lot! SOme nice touches in there, Carbon exhaust hangers? Rebuilt Forks??

The only thing that bugs me on the T8 is the yellow shock loop - I take it that its a plastic coating of some sort?

Its bad enough having a yellow spring on most shock's as it is.

Should be no yellow on a Ducati

Ooooh Nice....

Gives me a dilemma on what to do with my Strada...I prefer the all red seat unit a la SP4, but I like the fairing lowers of the standard strada/SP5. I guess it'll have to be a mutt.

Frank, the suspension hoop is painted or powder coated...it's grey on some later 888's

Mood: Scared! The SP4 hates me!!
Oh my god! An SP4 in the rain!! Are you mad!!!
I noticed the rear brake caliper sits on top of the swing arm. On my SP4 it's hung undeneath and secured with an alloy rod to the crankcases. Can anyone shed light on the difference? I seem to remember horror stories about the alloy rods breaking and the caliper jamming on. (or was that the carbon fibre version)

Oh, and of course... very nice bike mate!
