Ahoy from Bondi, Australia

Hey folks!

So just got my red SuperSport S MY19 model - dealer demo with Akro slip ons. Video here: http://bit.ly/DucSSS

This is my ‘company bike’ - I ride it every day between client locations (though not yet in the rain).

I’ve bought
- Ducabike frame sliders because i’m paranoid about a static drop (not fitted yet)
- Ducati Spacers to eliminate the throttle slop (not fitted yet)
- a professionally applied Crystal Serum Ultra ceramic coat for the tank, fairing, wheels, brake calipers and frame

Am absolutely LOVING the bike, hummed and hawed about the white one which looks gorgeous... ultimately went with the red because drivers in Sydney are incredibly lane-blind and seemed to ignore the white bike when I did the test-drive, compared with the red one, so just for safety I went red. SO glad i did.

THANK YOU to everybody in this forum who has contributed - i read so much before pulling the trigger on this bike - gave me confidence, knowledge and clarity around my decision. Will share back as I learn and go.

Cheers all!

Onya, Tim.

Company bike? Interesting...

She's not an Italian supermodel; they're high maintenance.
She's the cute Italian girl from school you wish you kept in contact with...

Nice one Tim... I have 18000 k's up on mine now. Just on my third set of tyres, it is a nice to have it in the shed with my trusty ST3.

If coordinating jobs from my bluetooth counts, I'd say mine is a company machine too.

Enjoy... IAN

Welcome aboard, brother.

I imagine in 2019 you Bondi boys are still measuring bikinis although not for proper coverage but rather proper exposure.

So, lemme get this straight.

I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?

Thanks for the welcome guys! And @Ian, yes - in fact - that might just count @NothingClever when N.Hemisphere winter gets too depressing, know those bikinis are out and proud down under!
