I'm in Ohio, where ethanol isn't so common, so perhaps that's why. At any rate, I've ridden the bike around town, up to Lake Placid, NY, and through countless twisty back roads throughout central and SE Ohio. Love the bike, and not a single mechanical issue so far. Of course, mine IS red, which is not only the fastest, but I believe the most reliable color.

Pictures kind sir!! Pictures!

Cool2 Well, if you insist...

Always glad to show off the Italian lady in action..
Back road somewhere around Lake Placid..


The GT in "ADV mode"...


And the requisite glamor shot, of course...


Since these pics I've added forged 5-Spoke Marchesini wheels...what a difference! The bike handles so much better, and the suspension isn't the bone-jarring experience in the city it once was.

Talking Gt1000

Just picked up a 2007 GT1000 two weeks ago and really enjoying the ride. Appreciate the comments on the thread and was wondering if anyone is still following since the last post was a couple of years ago.

Hi Morgan,
My GT is red, straight stock with the exception of the Ohlin forks, 4500mi. Not sure how to post a photo...I'll work on that.

Will get some proper pics soon but on my arrival my wife sat on and laughed at the crappy cruiser screen. The screen is now ditched. the bike has a hugger on the rear along with a rear rack, not the only rack in the pic I might add, and a front mudguard extender. I need fruity pipes on this as it sounds like a freakin honda.

I know you yanks talk of 'titles, clear or otherwise' and I do not know what that means, but this bike was dropped on a roundabout so has had some replacement parts through the insurance which has meant it has a clouded history recorded, without this I would not be able to afford it. £4k I paid, its a great bike.

Any ideas on MPG?

MPG all depends. I got around 45-50 prior to putting the Fat duc o2 sensor on. As you have probably noticed it is jerking and rough in first gear. The fat duc fixes this but when on 3/4 setting lowered my milage to 33. I recenty lowered it to 1/3 position and has increads the milage up to 38-40. Cheer on a great bike.

Ducati.ms has a wealth of info on these bikes.
