Great start!

Thanks for catching the spirit of the thread

A couple of Lavs, a Guzzi, and some fine modern Ducs on the first page. About the only thing needed to complete it is a Bevel. So here you are.



This had a nicely worked worked SS+ spec engine. Was actually the sweetest running Bevel I've ever ridden (about 10 of various types). Always a 1-2 kick starter, very reliable, comfortable, and nothing sounds better than a Conti-equipped Bevel thundering along through a wooded glen. Like most of my bikes, I sold this to a friend and can visit if needed

Here are my two Ducs. The 1993 888 SPO was my first bike that I actually learned to ride on. I bought it used in 1995 and fouled a few plugs learning to ride. Still have it and always will, I really love the old Superbikes. The 1996 900 SS/SP I got new in 1996 and actually won it on a raffle ticket. I still have it and love it.

Ok the story behind the Fantic, my buddy had one, so i had to have one as well, i was riding a Garelli enduro bike and thought it was a little to large for me, we were both competing at that time on wednesday afternoons, we must have been eight or nine and these bikes were true 50 cc licenced motorcycles, buddy's dad was a true Italian bike fanatic, riding his Guzzi California to work all year around, he was a teacher at the local high school.
So when i found the Fantic at a local cycle shop i traded it for my Garelli, thought it was gutless, i got the dual sport version, instead of the competition model, which i didn't know, went back to the shop, and got my Garelli back, rode it two more years and traded it for a yellow twostroke from Japan

Here are the current mistresses. I love them both and have a hard time choosing.

WOW! there are some nice italian bikes already posted.

I'm not sure how I caught the ducati bug but when I did I got this 2007 monster 695. I enjoyed riding it and also customizing it a bit.




Later, at the long beach motorcycle show in 2008, i sat on the new 1100 monster and eyeballed it pretty good. I wasn't so sure about the *new* look and figured then that I would never have one.

Fast forward to march of 2009, my custom harley-Davidson Dyna was stolen out of the garage and miracle of miracles, the police found it later the next day a couple blocks down the street. That day I went down to the motorcycle shop to stock up on chains and alarms and since I was feeling lucky decided to check out the new ducatis and if they had an 1100s in red, I would buy it. they did, so i did. I financed the bike and took her home.

About 2 weeks later, the finance guy calls me and said the financing didn't go through and I would need to bring them another $5000 cash to finance the bike. I said Naw, just come get the bike, I have the 695 and my h-d still, so no worries. they said they will see what they can do. this went back and forth a couple times, each time me saying just come get the bike, I won't be paying any cash.

Finally, they ended up cutting $1000 of msrp, dropping the freight and assembly charges, tax, and the lo-jack to get the deal done and the payment actually dropped to under $200/month.

So this is me enjoying my 1100s that i got a super sweet deal on

Dyna Mo,

Did you go from high to low mount Termis or vice versa?

the 695 comes stock with low mounts, and i kept the low mount config with the termis. the 1100s comes stock with high mount and i kept that config as well.
