Ducatis are mean bikes.

If you need 180 hp to catch up in the straights because you can't corner then it might be slow.

hot bike. I don't like either jacket, you should get a Dainese branded Dainese. I'm partial to the Santa Monica, the fit, particularly over the arms, is unreal. Like J said, Ducati jacket on a Ducati bike is really matchy matchy, not to mention yuppie city.

And you are a worthless cunt. Wish to contribute anything else to this thread with your impeccable grammar?

Thanks guys,

I've actually done more looking around since posting this and I think I'm going to go with a normal Dainese instead of a Ducati branded one.

That's no way to talk to a part-time manager for outback steakhouse! Show some respek.

Dainese HF Special

nuff' said.

I think they stopped production in 07 but you can still find it, very nice classic yet 21st century look

Agreed on the Dianese. Both brands just kinda go hand-in-hand anyways.

I can't believe i called it a 1099. I still want a 1098, though.

I'm really tempted to get the Eagle '65 jacket. I can't find anything really similar and I want a sportier hot weather jacket. I'll probably hold out for a full perfed leather jacket though. Too much Ducati on this one for me, I think. I'd feel like a douche.

I like that last ducati jacket. It's one of the nicer ones I've seen. I didn't see that in the catalog when I looked though.

j, what kind of Ducati do you have? I always thought you rode a BMW.

Yep, I owned that jacket. I think it looks the best, but I liked the Santa Monica better.

07 Sport 1000 biposto - I got it a month and a half ago or so.

Nice bike. I really like the sport classic line. I just don't know if I could deal with the lack of wind protection.
post #30 of 38
Well, the S and the Paul Smart have cafe fairings, but honestly they just make the riding position more uncomfortable at lower speeds because there's no wind to push on your chest and hold you up. At higher speeds you just lean into the wind and float there. I've never ridden a conventional sport bike with a fairing and windshield so I don't know what it's like, but I do know that I don't like lots of windbreak. On touring bikes with big windshields there's this still air pocket in front of you that gets warm and stagnant. I prefer the wind in my face personally. But if I were going to take a long trip I'd see about fitting a small windshield like one of the Givi ones just to smooth out the airflow around the headlight and instruments. There are other issues though... the forks are totally non adjustable and they suck, so I'm praying to find a good set from one of the other bikes that are a direct swap. That's the main one. Also, it runs tube tires (notice the spokes) and only 2-piston calipers, which, while they work pretty well, don't give a lot of feel. I'm still doing some research, but it looks like 03ish-06 GSX-R forks and calipers may swap in with minimal effort, just a couple of spacers to be made and then I would have full adjustability and 6-piston Tokicos and the bike should be a lot more tolerable and fun.
