DUDE, you need to call Ducati warranty and ***** about those mirrors, they SHOULD NOT wiggle THAT much at all! They can be tightened. The bike comes without the mirrors attached so obviously the dealership that put the bike together DIDNT do the mirrors properly. Good video btw.

About six months of use, as a everyday bike that does everything.

I may or may not have been high while recording this :grin2: :grin2: :grin2: >:)

Seems to me it's a free for all on those roads. No one gives a sh!t. I only watched a few minutes in and there were 6 near misses. Just madness. Visit SA and ride with freedom and safety.
By the way, forget about mirrors, you have much more life threatening situations and having mirrors won't change that.

Pretty used to it now, so those near misses were pretty non threatening from my view.

Great review, those roads are dangerous, I can imagine casualty numbers must be high?


My Daisy wouldnt get ridden on those dirt covered roads, too precious.


There are many family guys on here and perhaps the bad language is unnecessary, or at least give us a warning so we can choose when to watch it.


But an interesting and enjoyable video. I look forward to seeing more, thanks.

Thanks! Yeah the numbers of casualty are pretty high here, you can't really relax.

MODS: I can't edit the first post, can one of you add an explicit language warning?

Thanks for the review of Indian drivers and roads. I now know I won't have those roads on my bucket list. Have you thought of going for an advanced rider course. Perhaps go on a hazard awareness course first and build up your knowledge.

Nice vid, mate! Agree that the Ducati ticks all the boxes. That said, I’d probably prefer something more dual sporty on the roads in the video, but on the other hand, can’t argue with what one’s heart desires. I think it’s actually quite awesome that you show that the SS is truly a daily driver.

There’s gotta be a reason many bike manufacturers do their launches in SA, no? Would love to see any riding videos from what your neck of the woods, if you have any.
It's the climate. It's a fairly consistent temperature daytime. Winter evenings get a bit colder. Daytime in winter is normally up to 25°C, summer day time picks up to around 30°C and more. I don't do vids personally. Also offroad adventures are big here and that's what a lot of biking tourists come do here.
