Took the plunge!

After many years of prevaricating over whether to invest in a Ducati, I was finally in the position to buy one in addition to my other bike (an FJR1300).

Delighted with the bike, just had it serviced as it has been laid up as a collectors item for a while. Once I get some new tyres (the old ones have gone as hard as hell after 4 years off the road), things will be even better.

Not quite sure how to upload pictures to the forum yet, but I've given it a go. If you can see the attachment you should see my new (to me) 996S Hodgson Rep.

Cheers

Graham

I look forward to meeting some of you in person in the future.

Your bike looks immaculate a tribute to its previous owner/owners
Hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of you ownership of your first Ducati, it'll certainly be different from the FJR
