Picked up my 1098S today from Gold Coast Ducati

First impressions .. ohhhh yeahhhhh

second its a 916 style position with higher bars or a 999 with a higher seat.

Mirrors are useless, lost 1 of the exhaust cover bolts in the first 80KM

Pure Ducati

Brakes are awesome

Heat is awesome also

can't wait for the weekend

You're gonna love this bike! Takes a while to get used to keeping it in the 5 - 6,000rpm though...man, I'll be so glad when I've done a thousand kms - hopefully will have it done this weekend and a first service next week. enjoy and welcome to the 1098 club.

I should have the 1000kl clocked over before the weekend I'd say.

one of the exhaust cover bolts has already gone AWOL on me, those vibrations :ahhh:

Looks more like the MV that it replaced then any of the other Ducati's I own (pics in gallery)

Looking forward to it being run in. For fear of getting flamed it still hasn't knocked my 749R of the favourite bike podium yet.

hanging out to get out of work and get out there riding.

Ordered some pipes in from Germany as they were pretty neat and a heap cheaper then buying termi's

Where did you get the pipes? Any pics? How are you going to set up the chip to compensate for the improved breathing?

Thanks
