Some very nice looking jobs in here. I'm really liking that matte black/red framed one the most. Followed by the last black with number boards on red frame. They are exceptional in book though.

Oz that bike is simply stunning... I only hope my bike will eventually look a tiny % of the way that your bike looks... Kudos my friend, do you know what your total weight reduction is?

Hey Stim, had my carbon fairings away being painted at the time of the accident, so they came back a week or two after, plus i sort of knew what was damaged so already ordering as i got out of hospital and parts all arrived before i started to strip the bike ....easy rebuild :D

Damn, Full Ti yet or no? I saw the full Ti kit on Motowheels it was like 2200$ I wonder how much weight savings it actually is? Its funny ever since I got my bike, all I can think about is how much I want an S model. haha.... guess this will have to do for now.

not worried about ti bolts etc .. still have exhaust to go, have a pair of 1098R cans on it that have been de baffled and de catted.. but everyone is dragging the chain on exhausts (not Termi) as well as some other planned mods, bits n pcs..

What exhaust you leaning towards? if my bike didn't have the termis on it when I bought it I think I would've leaned towards akra... althought I'm a fan of both leo vince and the Arrow cans...

I have been waiting nearly 6 months for the Arata system, gave up, and ordered an LV system after being told "couple of weeks" in mid august.. am now told next month.. shits me ..:mad:

i prefer the akra in Ti rather than carbon..

Damn thread jackers! Lol.. Keep the pics coming! Love 'em!
haha, I did say </thread jack> admitting We have a problem is the first Step to recovery.... BTW your bike looks sweet too... I'm not so sure I'd change it.... especially nothing permanent like paint... maybe like a nice set of a vinyl stripes or whatnot... I wished I could have got a good deal on a red 1098... instead I settled on yellow... but I do love it now... and dammit I'm thread jacking again... :ahhh:

Thank you! I really appreciate that! I love the Red but I have to be honest, there are 4 or 5 other red 1098's in my area and I didnt buy another Ducati to fit in with the crowd, lol. I wanted to STAND OUT! With that being said, I have been looking for something unique and was gonna do a Grigio Silverstone (Ferrari Dark Silver) color and keep the red frame, but after seeing the matte black one on the first page, I have finally made up my mind. I wasnt gonna post the pic I photoshopped, I was gonna wait until I got the bike painted, but I would love all your opinions... Here is what I am gonna do. I changed up the rear number plates a bit and added front plates with the red border... What do you think??
