bike advice for smudger

Post by SMUDGER » 26 Apr 2017, 22:12

Right first lets get my last advice out of way.
If you rember last time I asked was between a 2004 range rover or bmw x5, well I went totally opposite direction and got a new shape Astra cdti Sri and some power mods lol.

Anyway I've decided its time to get two wheels and the choice a st1100 as I was at ones peace and happiness on last one regards to problems.
But I really want a ducatti no not a panigali I'm talking late 90s seen a really nice 900 ss @chickenstrips if you could like the ebay item id be grateful so what should I be looking at and avoiding
Thanks

Ducati's are nice to look at, although a 900SS isn't the prettiest Ducati.
Personally I'd give the Ducati a swerve and get a good, reliable bike.

I'm currently riding a Honda VFR800 (it suits my commuting needs) while my 2015 MotoGP replica Suzuki GSX-R 1000 sulks in the garage unridden (only really useful for track days nowadays). I've been contemplating chopping them both in for a Honda VFR1200F Image
