The "I Love My Super Duke!" Thread

I just got back from another fantastic ride on the Super Duke.



Light, nimble, awesome brakes, plenty of power and relatively comfortable.

Who else is in love?

Count me in Kirk . You are absolutely right. What a bike !!! Never failed to put a grin on my face. The Duke always makes me ride too fast.

light and nimble --- agree

awesome brakes ---- definitely

plenty of power ----- enuf to wet my pants

relatively comfortable ------ only when you go too fast to care

How do they handle rough pavement? One of the bikes I will be considering for sure. Also, should that pipe be blue that far back? Seems like it might need a fuel mixture adjustment or something?

They run a dry clutch setup? Love the coloring of the Ti exhaust
