What's there to talk you into?
You like the bikes. You know you want one.
Go ride some demos and buy the one you like, then ride the crap out of it.
"Ducati 900SS. It's not really a sportbike, it's your rosso clad mistress that has no qualms acting like a whore when you ride her. A cougar that takes her time, and knows how to push all your buttons." -Dilligaf
