2K for a set of keys??? ouch!



Morning Guys! I found a new way to drive to work, lots of quiet curvy roads.
Time wise it's about the same as before but it's about 25 clicks shorter and a lot more fun!
yep. the keys are electronically keyed to the specific ECU, or some such rot.

How about you get the 749, and I will come chase you through the twisities on your 900ss? I'm really jonesing for a bike right now. Time to bump my craigslist ad, and start fishing for trades...

They play cover/requests (no original material, just do their own arrangements) so no DAMS or downloads to rights manage.
Would the guy you know be the owner of one black 944? I think the kickass shirts he wears are why they get gigs....

I'd be more worried about Sid crashing the thing than losing the keys... From a 250 to the duc is a big step.

I've been looking a Duc Monsters again in the classifieds. For like 2K € you have a good one, not the latest but still good looking bikes. I'd go for the 900 before the 600 though.

See... I'd rather a 600 over a 9. That will help with the learning curve. Plus, that is still capable of killing you with ease...

the SS is a lot more raw than the 749. really. the 749 is easier to ride, even though it has more power.

i'd ride the monsters. 900cc's of naked goodness.

My thing with naked bikes is the lack of wind protection. We get a lot of wind here, and the little bit of windshield and fairing would help...

hell, the bike i learned on had almost 90HP.

1986 Yamaha FZX 750 Fazer specifications and pictures

i think 99HP, as listed on that page, is a bit optimistic. however, the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are correct.

the monsters have a little windscreen. that is usually enough. honestly, the screen on my SS is useless, unless i pretty much lay on the fuel tank.

I really need to ride one... There just aren't many around here...

I really want an 848, but lets be realistic....

The 848, 1098, and Triumph Daytona, are IMHO some of the best looking crotch rockets available.

i am coming around to the 748. the 888 is a bit dated. if i were to buy brand new, 848.

1993 Ducati 888 Strada specifications and pictures

yep, sweet bike. but dated. the 916 is much sexier.

Love the 888 too, I don't think it's too dated, it still looks cool IMO

i think you would be happier with a 900. i really really like the mid 90's SS. very nice lines.
