    The trailer was purchased to operate as sort of a command central at the trail rides. Quite handy actually and on top of all that with the gear not to mention motorcycles that has to accompany setting up and tearing down and marking trails and whatnot for the trail rides the kind of makes a whole bunch of sense .....

    Yes the OFTR is all about diplomacy however a big part of it is about organizing rides as well and just by the sheer nature of the types of rides it's often in out-of-the-way places where no other accommodation is available to the organizers..

    Plus they usually have ice cream and water in there!!

    Awesome battle for 2nd as Eslick puts the EBR1190 (Erik Buell Racing) seemingly anywhere he wants to outmaneuver his opponent's more pwerful GSX-R1000.

    Interesting developments, for sure.

    But I didn't notice a Ducati in that AMA Superbike race.

    Be interesting to know where Ducati finds the extra power.

    Is it simply able to rev the short stroke motor higher than more "conventional" bore\stroke ratio designs.

    :dunno

    edit: Will Ducatis soon be available through Volkswagen dealerships.

    :dunno

    from what i've read, it sounds like the bike is not as fun to ride on the street as previous ducs. you have to really rev the bike to get to those ponies. i think max torque (~85ft-lb) comes in at 8.5K rpm, and max HP at 10.5K rpm. either way, its pretty damn impressive to get that kind of horsepower out of a twin.

    they also seem very reliable, combined with 10K miles between major service. there is a guy in ride reports that is riding one across the states, and has so far put 15K trouble free miles on his. not bad for a race bike...

    i want my S1W back :cry
