I mean, I must have, right? How else can a motorcycle have been built that checks so many of my boxes? I've owned a lot of bikes over the years but never a Ducati. I was actually in the market for a Multi when I saw the advertisements for the SuperSport. After reading the reviews and Ducati's description of the bike and its place in the lineup, I put my money down with Ducati Vermont in May. I've never bought a bike before that I've never ridden, and I've also never bought any "toy" that operates at the edges in it's first year before the kinks are worked out, but with the SuperSport I didn't hesitate for a moment. Sure, the bike has a je ne sais quoi similar to that described by Harley folks, except for the fact that beyond the intangibles (whatever it is that has me smiling hours after having dismounted), it has characteristics you can absolutely put your hands on. It corners so intuitively, has a power band that can only be described as delicious (I might feel it lacks a bit up top when I get chance to track the bike, I'll admit) and has a sound that I'm genuinely considering recording so I can listen to it whenever life gets too heavy. If there's one drawback, it's the amount of attention the bike gets that I wasn't prepared for. Over this holiday weekend I was forced at every stop to reinstall my helmet and boogie out because I had already lost a lot of time talking to people about what it is that I'm sitting on. Well done, Ducati.
