    I would keep in mind the Guzzi V7 in the same market segment as well. At least that one is still 100% Italian - entirely made in Italy ;-)

    Pffftt. During my Ducati ownership days, BC (Before Colour mobile phones), I rode it all four seasons every year - it never missed a beat :-p

    Hey Barfridge,
    did you happen to talk to Todd about the power up kits he is going to be designing for the scrambler? He send me out on a ride on their loaner bike after the scrambler which has the kit on it and is a 696 monster so has a similar engine.
    Makes a huge difference to how it rides and the intake noise is awesome. Definitely worth considering once he's finished it

    Pick it up next weekend, brand new Scrambler, Termi race pipe, plans for clipons and a few bits and pieces.

    Patterson's in Bunbury have been excellent to deal with, especially compared to the local mob who shall not be named.



    LET THE "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING!" COMMENCE
    Well I will say the jacket and jeans are very slimming on you

    If I was forced to own a Harley that would be pretty high on my list, alongside some sort of v-rod or that 1200x sportster thingy

    Have you seen those flash jump packs the size of a hard drive, 660cca, fits in your pocket. Should be standard issue to Ducati toolkit.
    Well done barfy on giving [MENTION=27121]Gippo[/MENTION] a new riding/sipping partner. You make a wonderful Ducati couple.

    Looks like a really fun bike to zip around on.

    Surely not the ducati powered scooter.....

    Avoid the coast road on the way home...( if you make it out of the karrpuk)

    Try a left at Spencer and a right at the Bussel hwy..

    There's is no way in hell I'd wear blundstones for riding. Usually Dainese or A*, sometimes doc martens when I'm dressed down for going to the shops.

    I plan to collect it next weekend, and they're very used to selling unreliable Italians to Perth people, it's a fine art.
