The super sport is the first Ducati I have owned.
I have had many Jap bikes but my favourite was my TL 1000 Suzuki and loved it, but the riding position was just to hard on my back.( old age I guess)
Even though the super sport is down on power it is much nicer to ride (20 year old verses new ).
The only problem I have are the the things that stick out either side not sure what there there for?
look like mirrors but only seem to be able to see things when the bike is stopped, maybe they are there so I can adjust my helmet or hair, if I had any that is but apart from that bike seems ok, early days ask me in twelve months and a few more klms

I'm pleased you're liking the Supersport so far, mine is the first Ducati I've owned too.

Enjoy your bike and watch out for the old bill, I understand they are pretty hard on speeding bikers down under

Hi Steeve
Your right there, we have speed cameras, highway patrols and everything else you can think of to keep revenue up, sorry I mean't safety up.
That's why it would be nice to have some rear view mirrors that worked.
Have considered maybe a good quality reversing camera, that has a good long range if there is such a thing, fit the screen near the instrument panel and wired into the ignition.
Only a thought.
Anyway past me bed time have a great night everyone

Those things are turn signals!

Steve, can you have speed (sorry safety) camera database on your sat nav? That's one reason I use mine all the time.

Try using WAZE on android, great app for road conditions and police etc...
Try it in the car to see if you like it. Social platform layered over googlemaps.
