    My first date with an Italian beauty! lol

    A 2006 (bought new in 2011) Ducati Multistrada 620 with matching sport-touring saddle-bags. A left-over model of my favorite Ducati, less than 20 miles were on it, full 2 year warranty, the dealer kept dropping the price, and threw in the bags for free ;-) . I guess the bad economy was good for something :) .

    Had it for a year now and am impressed with the performance of the 620, my mechanic rode it (he has a 1000 MTS) and said it was quick for a 620. My thoughts, exactly!!

    My addiction in red :ricky.

    Hey Mitch, it's a 1975 850T that has been stretched to 950cc and had a 45mm fork added. There are lots of non-factory parts on the bike, but as I get things dialed in a little better, I find it's a really fun bike to ride. It was a 14 month project that I've been thinking about for many years.

    There is a similar shot to the one I posted here, and a couple others in the thread noted below.

    Edit: you have to scroll down the page to get to the photos.

    While that's a wonderful stable, keep in mind that his entire collection can be had for less than the price of a new VFR, give or take. :)

    I am having thoughts. Deep, serious thoughts.

    You mind giving me a quick overview of the older Tuono?
