It was the best bike I've ever had....
« on: November 05, 2019, 10:32:16 AM »
Haven't been around here for a while... Just thought I'd tell good old Region 5 that after 12.5 years its the end of an era for me.. Absolutely the best, most reliable motorcycle I've ever owned... and its off to make content for this Dealer/Youtuber..

Good to see you still riding JJ.

That Duc 996?  It was a blast but sorta grenaded itself at 25K.  It sorta ended my run with Ducatis.  None of mine ever went past 35K without major motor issues.  Just too fussy for my daily ride.

You would have gotten $3K if you included the ABS module... (Alderfer Braking System) ;D

I've had some great times fixating on that tail light.
Cool video.

Hey Mr. Whippy!.. I really don't think that 996 was stock by any stretch of the imagination.. ppl cant see you when your headlight is always up in the air..  I had an ST4 for a while after that one.. just never really hit it off with the Italian girls.. too finicky

Ooh.  I loved those Italians when they were running, but they don't like salt, they don't like water, the valve train likes to wander (in the guides)...
I need a bike that can go 50-75K before it needs an engine tear down.  I stupidly believed the blogs where people said they had run their monster 100k etc, I suspect a lot of time in AZ, NM, TX and not much fall/winter riding.

My thoughts exactly.  When I close my eyes, I can still see an image burned on my retina.   I saw the headlights a few times too.

Many, many great days in the saddle.

Hey, I remember that first pic.
And the beer in the trunk, too.

I may be the only one still riding
the same bike after all these years?
It's never too early to plan.

Another value added feature would have been cannon transport. Cool video JJ.
