Hi, Welcome to the club What's your budget, both to buy and run? What sort of riding do you do? Are you handy with tools (not because they're always breaking down, just to help reduce service costs!) and lastly never, never, ever buy a yellow Ducati

Hi, welcome to the board. Where are you based.
Bit quiet on here at the moment, but will pickup as the weather improves as will the regional meets

Got a mate who is going to be selling his 900SS in the very near future, He tells me he wants 1500, can get more details if your interested like me he's in Oxford

, Mick. Both the SS and the ST2 are great bikes and if you choose either, you'll have a heap of fun, so good luck with the search.
By the way, what Swannymere meant to say was, "Unless you like being the one attracting all the admiring glances, don't buy a yellow Ducati."

Hello & Welcome to the site:

I think about the best thread we have on buying advise is here:


I hate to say this as a 900ss owner but if you stretch your budget a little I think a 1000DS might be a better buy.

Enjoy the forums & feel free to ask any questions.
