well guys ive had my 1098 for 3 days and after 8 years of accident free riding and 12 years of dreaming of owning a ducati superbike i am now sitting on the couch nursing a broken ankle and a wrecked bike with 55 miles on it. Went riding with my girlfriend, her first time out on her own bike (my Triumph 675). well she makes a left turn and apparently doesnt realize im behind her (god knows how in the world she didnt know that) and as soon as she clears the intersection she she slams on the brakes and stops dead in front of me! (still cant figure why she would stop in the middle of the road just after clearing the intersection) long story short i have to stop short (couldnt swerve as i was still leaned in turning when she did it) brakes lock up tires skid and down i go. Damage is pretty bad, both rear views and the entire left fairing. Broken shifter, lever, messed up kickstand ect.... what a horrible feeling!
