    Heres my offering, 2010 Ducati Streetfighter that I bought new in June of '11. I have a Hepco&Becker sportrack with a pelican on the back. I have plans to make a rack for more cases on the side later. Also, I have some Triumph bars on that are flatter and wider and some sliders.

    I just purchased my first Ducati a few weeks ago. Here's a pic from Echo Lake, outside Idaho Springs, CO. Everything is stock in this picture, but that's already changing :D Next moves are getting her ready for long treks into the mountains.

    I haven't posted anything for a while, so thought I'd share this one of my 1098 getting ready for a longish trip North:

    Well I wanted something different, something that no one else in town had. So I started looking for a mid 90's 900SS/SP. Then I came across this 06 Monster S2R 800 for an unbelievable price so I bought it. Have enjoyed it for the past 3 years. But it may be leaving my stable in a few weeks, I have some one that wants it real bad. Hope I don't regret it. Plan to get a Triumph Tiger 800 this spring. I guess if I miss I can go buy another.

    Day I brought it home

    Very nice indeed. Is that tank the work of Evan Wilcox?

    I'm trying to figure that out myself. Tank was on the bike when I got it and the po bought it from MG Cycle. He wasn't sure of who made it other than it was from Germany. I will do a little research here soon. The bike was running when I got it but needed some loose ends tied up and a serious detailing. I added the sidecovers to hide the wiring but hopefully this winter I'll eliminate them when the bike gets rewired.

    Thanks wpbarlow for reposting my pic, I think I need a Photobucket account instead of Flickr.
    I have a few more Italian bikes so I'll sort myself out and post some more.

    Cheers,
    Corsa.

    You shouldn't need to bother. It just takes a little more work with flickr, I think.

    Simply take the address for the image:

    http://www.flickr.com/corsa996photos/italiangoodness.jpg

    And place it inside two image tags, such as this:
