These are the first pics that I've had time to take. Been so busy lately with work and school I've only had time to ride it 4 or 5 times in since I got it a couple weeks ago. Maybe you guys can give me some input, I got this transparent yellow headlight cover thing for free with the bike, not sure if I want to use it or not :confused:

So far my impressions of it are as follows:

1) One word: "LOUD" (but an awesome loud)
2) The 190 rear tire has gotta go. I like the tire so far, but this bike needs a 180 on the back, the front tire does great.
3) Still loving the GP style shifting as always. I like the rearsets
4) More torque than a Honda Civic
5) Love the "piss on Japan" sticker :flipa
6) Suspension is set up for a rider about 35 pounds lighter than me, so it needs to be setup, which I'll get done over the offseason.

Any comments are welcome!

Very nice bike man. What headlight cover are you talking about?
The one is the very last picture. Not sure what I think about it yet.

Yeah, I do like Termis better, but the Arrows sound great too. I need to get a CF rear hugger, that's probably the first thing I'm gonna do, that or the 180 rear tire. Also, yeah that is a spare Marchesini in the background =D I always like to keep an extra wheel/tire ready to go, no specific reason really, just like to have it ready.

Red bodywork is off of a wrecked 996. I'm planning on getting it all painted black and doing a "Monstermob" race replica over the winter. I still need to get a tank, I got the fairings for $100 :D

Yeah, I'm leaning towards leaving them off too, I don't like them that much, especially if it ends up dimming my lights out a little at night.

$10,500, not a smoking deal, but not a horrible one either. I mainly paid that much because I know the owner, I know how he treats his bikes, he runs it hard but takes better care of it than anyone I have ever seen, and how religious he is with getting it serviced, saved every receipt, bike has never had a problem, and if I put the same care into it he did, it will proably be a trouble free Ducati for the rest of it's days.
