Thanks Rich and Wayne- Im shooting for spring for a ride but not rushing it. Im agonizing over buying the ring brothers space frame hinges- so nice - but so expensive! When does the bleeding stop building these cars

Thanks again Rich

Ok, back on topic!
Another quick hijack.......I love My '04 CBR 1000rr even though it's becoming "old" technology. The sad thing is is the price of the Japanese bikes is skyrocketing while the Euro bikes are plateauing or dropping. For he price of a new Japanese sport bike you can get a BMW S1000RR, almost a Ducati 1198. The new Kawasaki ZX-10 is 15k! The new breed of 600cc sport bikes is pushing $12k.......that's more than My 1000 was new!

Dan- That does seem high for a jap bike. My kid paid 3800 for the 748 its an 00 with 2k miles. I couldn't believe how clean it was, it was one of those dealership show bikes and sat on the floor for many years before it got sold, the kid who bought it got tired of it quick. My son has a level 1 cert from Ducati, he would really like to get a job working in one of there dealerships, of course there's not to many of them around.

That's a key to affordable Ducati ownership. Especially an older model. Those valve adjustments can be killer.
