Got my 1299 SL

Bike feels light as hell and the power , torque is amazing. Reminds me a lot of my Viper cars the way the motor rumbles and instant power on the tap at the track. I know apple and oranges comparison but it does. This is my first modern Ducati bike. I do have other modern inline 4 liter bikes but collect ride mostly late 80's to 90 era rare sport bikes. Some pics of my SL.

Gorgeous SL!! Which dealer did you pick it up from? My local dealer in Livermore was prepping an SL last week. What a special bike.

I like the Suzuki and Yamaha in the background as well.

Good to meet another local guy with a similar affinity for some of the older stuff as well as the latest and greatest!

Hi Kevin picked up the bike at a dealer in the mid west. yes I have a big love for them rare homologation race bikes. Glad to hear about a good reputable Ducati dealer in Livermore. I heard about the service dept. at Moto Cafe in Sunnyvale not being so good so been looking else where thanks.
