Coming back to North America early, bought a new bike

So I had to return to Canada from France half a semester early, this can mean only one thing as I sold my speed triple before I left.

NEW BIKE TIME


Newest addition to the family, picking it up on the 25th. Only picture I have for
now.

What's this Ducati shit? What's this bullshit? I don't fuckin' care! It don't matter to Akumu. But you're not foolin' me, man. You might fool the fucks in the forums, but you don't fool Akumu. This Bush-league psyche-out stuff. Laughable, man – ha ha!

Indeed. If everything goes according to plan I'll have lots of free time this summer too (aiming to go back to school full-time for my masters degree in the fall, working part-time only during the summer). I'll hopefully have as exotic a bike as you come the spring as well!

EFF YES!!

Nice pick up, man. I know I envy the bigger 1x98 bikes because I consistently find myself looking into getting the DucShop 1040 kit for my lil' 848.

Never stop learning.

Quite a few. :-(

Let me know when you'll be back in North America and here in town. I have a weird work schedule, but if it happens to be sometime during a Sat afternoon-Mon afternoon timeframe I'm usually off. Did you get it thru one of our local Duc dealers?

Looks good. I always preferred that in yellow like Brandon (LP_MR) had.

you will love it. I know I love mine. Enough that it's parked in my living room right now. It's too pretty to just leave out in the garage.
