Hi all, I'm new to the Ducati family my last bike being a Z1000.
I wanted something comfortable with some weather protection, (I've had sport bikes) I can't ride those anymore without a lot of discomfort, getting a little older and less flexible.
I've always liked the styling of Ducati so when the SS came out I thought it was worth a test ride. Long story short I'm now the proud owner of a red SS. Just had the first service, can't wait to finish the running in process to let it really stretch its legs. The way the bike handles, far more capable than I will ever be.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your purchase. Whereabouts are you in the UK? I am originally from Leeds, Yorkshire but emigrated to Melbourne, Australia 46 years ago :smile2:

Thanks Colin, I don't really know the southern areas, and after forty-odd years I wouldn't even recognise my hometown now no doubt. Welcome Colin, I look forward to your input :smile2:

Crawley , Haywards Heath, Burges Hill, I bet you have run up and down ditching beacon a few times :grin2: welcome
There are some great roads along the South Downs, you just have to be careful of the speed cameras and the unmarked Police (cars and bikes). The police are normally out in force (no pun intended) on the weekends.
If I'm off during the week it's nice to explore the roads around the downs, I forget all of life's worries for a while. To me that's what riding a bike is all about, my own little world with the feeling only a bike can give.
