it's because those that were looking had no fucking clue as to what they were looking atthe 1198 is very sexy. but when i parked my 09 repsol as it is (all tricked out) next to the 1198 this weekend....mine looked a hell of a lot better. more people were looking at the orange and dark blue machine than the ducati. some people even said that mine looks like a ducati....once i get those carbon fiber covers...it's gonna look bad ass.
How is the RC8 is competition for the 1198 or the RSV4?Yea i think the 1198 has a 2 new competitiors which i cant afford either the KTM RC8 and the Aprilia RSV4, i cant make up mind which the best out of them, but again i cant afford any of those so it doesnt matter at the point.
as a guy who has a tricked out 04rr...and a 08 1098S
the ducati CANNOT be a your one and only bike
the honda is reliable as a milled east german AK
but nothing ...nothing on this planet has the soul of a ducati
short of an rc30
there are days when i just turn it on to listen to it..... i find myself in awe of the fact i even own one...wondering what i did to make god happy enough to bless me with the money to spend on one
i used this analogy before....to great effect
the cbr is Lucy Lu
she is hot...not smoking hot but lots of fun...shes always up for fun...not alot on the curves and looks...but get on her and she'll take all you can give her...and take more than you can give
but you are ALWAYS in control...it's up to you...she molds to you and therefore blends into the back ground
a little bit bland...but rock solid...you could spend your time with her and never be disappointed
but you'll never know what you have been missing
the ducati is Angelina Jolie
She exudes sexiness at the highest level...shes a temperamental bitch ...but nothing compares if you got the money and the ability..
so if you dont have what it takes...she wants nothing to do with you....you better have been around the block more than once....cause she'll push you back...and if shes pissed...she'll let you know...she's mllowed in her age...but not that much
you have to balance her needs with yours...but when those needs are the same there is nothing like it
blasting a 90mph 3gear wheelie out of a corner that stays up until 4th gear on ducati is as good a sex (with one chick)
you turn the ducati on and she wants it...no BS cruising in mrytle beach .... or on some college campus drag...she want curves or a track
she has all the show...but she wants the go
and deep down you know the girl is a freak...a toe sucking spit on her butthole freak....but you better have the goods...no short dicked squids need apply
she'll look at you like ...who do you think you are...you dont have it little man
you can park an 08 cbr 1000rr next to a 1098 ...and you 'll forget the rr is there...quickly
motorcycles are so much more than a spec sheet or a write up in a magazine
if that sounds like you ... and you have a second bike....the ducati is a no brainer
Considering it is there first kick at the can, I would say it is pretty impressive. Some of the features on the RC8 leave me wondering why all bikes aren't built this way. Adjustable sub frame, foot pegs, clip ons, mirrors come off with one nut, solo seat is built in, quality suspension, Marchesini wheels.......How is the RC8 is competition for the 1198 or the RSV4?
