Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but I just wanted to comment on the number of Dukes attending the Superbikes at Phillip Island. I had always considered Dukes to be quite an exclusive brand but they were absolutely everywhere. I could not belive just how many 1098 bikes were there as well, I must have seen dozens of them. Oh well you learn something every day! I have not been to the Island for many many years, and just walking through the rows and rows of different bikes was fantastic. Great day and everyone was very well behaved on the roads in and out. I had a sit on an 848 which was a bad idea, my next bike has just gone from a $15k something to a $25k machine now!!!
