I'm so happy to have my SSS back. It's awesome. I had a '17 and now I have the '18 no real difference, same buzzy mirrors and hard to find neutral and hot as ****. LOL Since I was 25 yrs old, I have only owned or ridden a Ducati. Monster 600 900 and 1200, 748, 999, Hyperstrada and now 2 SSS. (Maybe I'm the only guy in the world who has owned 2 SSS!). BUT, while I was waiting for my new bike to be set up I took a ride on a Triumph 675R. No buzzy mirrors. Not hot as **** and crisp neutral. It was like riding a limo compared to every Ducati I've owned. TOTALLY different experience. NOT BETTER, as I have really enjoyed ALL my Ducatis but I took my SSS out on an aggressive sport ride today and I was kinda annoyed about the mirrors and the heat. More annoyed than usual for me. LOL. The heat for me is a bit much and much worse than all of my other Ducatis except the 748. I am a diehard Ducati rider. But I guess what I'm trying to say is that we should always hold their asses to the fire because some things should be addressed from the factory. Some may say that since the SSS is a sportsbike then you should be wearing leathers and heat wouldn't matter and on a track mirrors don't matter. BUT they have marketed this bike as a sports bike for the street. I don't wear leathers on the street and I really like to see what's going on behind me. I have written my concerns to Ducati and since I have owned so many I am surely naive thinking that I would matter to a giant company like Ducati but I think we as a group may want to put together a letter to Ducati NA. Numbers mean a lot to companies. NOW with all that said. I had a great ride and nothing is like the grunt, style and sound of my red and gold sweetheart SSS. I just want these guys to f*****g get it together so my ass doesn't fry and I get rear ended because I can't see s**t behind me! VIVA DUCATI!
