Oh hey there! Fancy seeing you lovely people in this thread of mine just here. So, as the title states, I want a ducati 1198. (even a 1098 if its better for what I want). The only problem is that I want this 1198 for everything! Uhuh. Thats right. The whole lot. Monday to friday commuting in a 70km round trip, weekend trips on highways for 2hrs of 110, and less frequent weekend shenanigans up in the mountains and twisty bits. I also want it to be my only bike. Am I nuts? (I don't have a car for backup btw) I know that there are more reliable, better suited, cheaper and more economical yet better performing machines out there, but dammit I want the ducati! This is solely based upon its looks and sound. Shallow you say? You may be right. But its the truth. I'm young and I don't care about comfort or practicality. I don't want to keep my hornet 900 (which I love and is almost perfect) and get another model duc for cheaper. I can't have two bikes. (It's just not an option for me) So my question is- how bad would/will it really be? As my sole form of transport will I be catching the train lots and lots? Will I go bankrupt from servicing costs riding about 30-35,xxxks a year? Please help me. (I don't know what I need help with, but I definitely need help.) Andy.
