Hi,

I finally reached to create an account for this interesting international forum.
I have the habit on french forum to do a nice description. So, Matt 37 years. I live In the French Alps between Evian & Geneva on the french side of leman lake.

I've got the ss since 1 year but it's not my first ducati because I had a 1000ssie 916 s4 and 1000 multistrada yet.
I'm a great fan of this brand because first, I like twin cylinders. Since my drive license I started with a 650 xr supermotard, cb500, sv650/1000 and then the ducati.
I equally had a triumph 955 sprint rs but I don't like the behaviour. It's too closed to a 4 cylinders. I like big torque as soon as possible that's why I like 1 cylinder too.
In the mountains where it's my gaming zone it's marvellous. Due to this, i'm not interested by too much horsepower as you can find on cbr, r1... even with a panigale v4 altough it's a ducati. I don't have the level and the roads to appreciate, so it would be useless.
The 939 engine is quite nice even if 20hp more would be great. But it's not my favorite engine from ducati. I'm in love with the 1000D2 (air cooled) character! As a second bike, I think about a mostro 1000 s2r...

To finish, I like ski, motorbikes, rock and play the guitar. >:)

Some pictures of bike and neighborhood.






I hope you have enough, and excuse my french. :grin2:

Consider yourself lucky. I’ve been to Geneva and really loved it. My wife was an NGO advocate to the United Nations, and I tagged along with her year.

There was a little place where I ate breakfast every morning. I forget the name: Three kings? (Des 3 Rois.). And the people were so kind and beautiful. The old timers would stroll in around 10AM and sip white wine together at the restaurant bar. :)

Geneva’s a big city, but for me it had a small town feel.

And of course the surrounding nature and mountains are ideal for motorcycles.

Welcome to the group!

Thanks for recall me that I'm lucky, sometimes I forget. :wink2:
It's true that it's a nice area for all seasons and my hobbies come from this. Snowboard, swimming, bikes. Some ski stations are open in the summer for bike all mountains on the winter slopes. I tested but I don't why, I'm afraid whereas I can really ride fast on moutain roads. :laugh:

If I had to move, I always think about New Zeland to refind the same conditions.

Wich brand is it?
Since I tested the swiss brand "nidecker" I stayed on it.
When there's superb snow conditions or during the holydays to avoid too people in the stations I do some freeride.
My actual board is on it's last sessions on slopes because edges are too used. I was on a snow test last december and I tested a splitboard, arbor pro model. Fuckin' efficiency, but 1600 USD for full package!
