I am sad to report that the Ducati is down….
I was on my way to work Tuesday morning. I remember coming into a crossroads and seeing a cars headlights. I remember thinking that “I am in trouble; they are not supposed to be there”. Then I remember a horrendous tank-slapper with the rear wheel lifting back and forth. I fought it for a bit and had it calmed down a lot when it abruptly went down on the left side. Most of the impact was to my helmet and left shoulder. It knocked me out when I hit and I was out for @30 minutes or so. The car I saw left and I was found by a neighbor @15 min later. I slipped in and out of consciousness for the next few hrs.

End result is two broken hands from fighting the tank-slapper. I am also having some nerve issues from getting the head rattled again… Mostly great shape though considering what happened. I still can’t drive yet but have been able to re-learn how to do mostly everything else, despite two broken hands. Lol

My Shoei performed well (although it ground down the face shield and actually melted it). My Olympia jacket performed well too. It ground down through the shoulder area and another inner jacket but did not get into my skin.


Hmmm, wondering if it will be a total loss with the insurance company....

It will take a new:
Luggage- $1200
Gas tank- $1300
Left Fairing- $900

etc etc.... whole left side....

So glad to hear you made it out alive !!!
Still a little fuzzy about how it all went down, but typing is I'm sure, a real chore for you presently...
Heal up rapidly and fully, I've always enjoyed your posts on the MS1200, what with the way you rack up so many miles ! I'd be suprised if it wasn't a write off, Italian parts prices and all.

I was found lying in the road @ 15 minutes after the incident. The car that I saw has yet to turn up.

I only put @19k on her in 7.5 months.....
The mileage dropped after the 690R showed up...

2nd time on the 1200

I havent been on a MS1200 in a couple of years. When I rode it the first time I was aww inspired. This time was more subdued. Yes it has power, but it wasnt the unruly beast that I remembered. This was a 1200s with 3500 miles on it. (priced at $15,500.) The clutch may have needed an adjustment, and it shifted like a '73 hadoka. The brakes were not even that great. It almost felt like the bike was "worn" althought it was in Mint looking condition. I found myself getting Carpel Tunnel Numbing while I was riding it also. I will say it was wet out and I didnt trash on it.
It must be me, but it was just not what I had built up in my head. I still wondering if I should buy it or not.


SidewinderX- Glad your still with us brother.

Sounds like it was in enduro or city mode.
Mine has one of the slickest shifting trannies I've used though not quite
up to my KTM 990.
These things have very good front brakes, but I find they need to be
bled to keep them strong.

Sorry to hear about the wreck!!!

Hope it works out well on the insurance. A friend of mine did a head first dive into the track with an Arai with no further head issues, sold me on Arais but I am sure each instance is different. (I lost concious during a mountain bike crash with a Bell full face, and I still think the helmet saved me, and immediately bought a new one).
