Now that is beautiful. I've never quite appreciated the look so much before. I had the drum brake version for a while. Remarkable little bike. Something very special about the way these steer.

- i hear you- ive never had a bike that could hold a line so well. i split traffic most my commute- and this bike can take s-curves at 60mph and not deviate off 20cm..

its not the fastest, and certainly not the most powerful-- but its a real pleasure

I loved the earlier SS900. So wished they used the old looks on a new SS1100DS!

20 cm? Sure your frame isn't bent?

Nice resto job, BTW. Like the pipes - sometimes original isn't better.

here's my ducati, it's an '09 M1100. unfortunately it's back at the dealer so they can fix a base gasket oil leak under warranty.

ive spent quite a bit of time on an 1100s that i set up........ it had pipes and a chip, q2's....... i lowered the front a little...... it is in my top ten of the most fun bikes ive ever ridden - when i was finnished it had the best front end feel of any bike ive ever used.
im a lucky guy and i get to ride a lot of bikes and ive been an a lot of ducks..... but i believe the the 1100 monster, set up is possibly the best chassie ducati has ever made..... it needs pegs for the track though - the stock ones are to low and slick.
