Update on my $1450 ++++ St3 Ducati. I've put a thousand miles on it since I got it leagal to ride .
Impressions so far, I do like the 100+ H.P. , somewhat addictive.
The bars are too low and it agrivates my carpal tunnel problems.
It handles, brakes and feels like a Ducati. You can go quickly down the road in moderate discomfort.
Like all Ducs its geared too high.
I rode to Indy for Moto GP with no problems til I got there . Then the clutch slipped any time I reved past 4000.
I put a whole new Barnett's clutch and basket and springs in it to cure that.
Now with fees , parts, etc. I'm at about $2800 in it but , good to go.
