Went to the dealer here in Charlotte on Friday to take in my 2012 monster evo for service. While I was there I saw a friend and fellow duc rider who I havent bumped into for a few years. He said I absolutely had to take a look at the SS. Been riding monsters for over 10 years. Never really interested in the racing bikes or any of the other offerings Ducati has. But, when I did some research on it, this bike is DEFINITELY what I want now. Not as young as I used to be and riding the monster for hours at a time can be a challenge. The BlueRidge Parkway is one of my favorite places to cruise and this bike would be perfect for it, as well as getting my butt up there without wearing me out. Local shop has one being built and they are wanting me to trade in on it. But, I dont think is an S model, and thats the one I would want. Especially in the white....beautiful. Looking forward to joining the discussions and eventually in the coming months, maybe having a SS in the garage. Cheers.
