Hey everyone, new to this forum and Ducati, but not new to motorcycles. I grew up riding pretty much everything with two wheels and a motor since I was 7 years old. Motorcycles are my passion, no doubt about it. Needless to say, ever since I laid eyes on a Ducati 848, I knew one day I would have to have one of my own. Last week the dealership I work at in Illinois received a 2012 Ducati 848 EVO on trade. I couldn't pass it up. It feels amazing to finally ride the bike of your dreams, and I love being a part of the Ducati family. Cheers!

Welcome aboard Lucas. Glad to have you here. It's gonna be tough to sell those bikes when a customer asks you "So, what bike do you ride?"

:yo:

Thanks! I'd have to agree with you there. The red frame and red wheels just set it off so nice. I'm kinda curious as to the differences in maintenance on a matte/silk paint scheme compared to a clear coat/gloss paint scheme. I guess that's what ducati.org is here for right?!

Original Polish. Stuff is the greatest. It's also called Honda Polish, YamaPolish, etc. All the same.
