I am 18. Been riding obsessivly for 2 years. I have a deposit on a red base, but I am not sure yet. I am pretty used to the I-4s, so a twin, especially a ducati, is hard to imagine. It was in love with the 06 CBR1000RR but I am in the process of being seduced away from it bye the 1098 (evident by my $500 deposit).
