Hi all, I'm new to the forum, thought I give a quick shout out. My fascination with bikes started when watching Top Gun with Maverick speeding down the runway. Today, I went in to Ducati City on Elizabeth Street and chucked a $1k deposit on the black 659, currently in stock and should be ready for me early next week. I'm going for the Ls this weekend, having previously gone about 4 months ago I was unable to complete the second day in Hoppers Crossing, but looking forward to getting the addition to my license. By no means am I a hoon, but I am greatly looking forward to using this machine as my every day commuter in to town. Picking up a Shark helmet from PS on Friday, and have a pair of Dragging Slix and a jacket in the mail. In terms of accessories, I plan on ridding the bike of the hideous windscreen, have axle and frame sliders coming from the US along with a tail tidy kit. In the future, plan on getting gold brake and clutch levers and come the weekend will get some barend mirrors. Looking forward to meeting up with some of you for a ride, will need to get some experience under my belt first!
