Bwahahahahahahahahahaaha. Famous last werdz. Once bitten, the power bug is hard to shake. Even on the big DS bikes I would imagine.
Do NOT ever get on a Ducati. The light weight and torque curve will ruin you. It is not the most powerful bike I own, nor anywhere near the fastest, but the power delivery and quick handling will blow your mind on back roads.

I do like the looks of the 800 better than the bigger bike, but when you pack in 400cc more engine into the chassis, things get busy in a hurry. How does the weight difference feel to you?

Trophy, when you having a bike detailing clinic? I'll volunteer the KLR as a test case...



Edit: Took the Tiger back to the shop... :sigh:

(cause they didn't finish the accessories... Only got lights, heated grips, and tank bag installed. Doing crash bars and skid now... And I'm back on the Explorer. They really need more tension on the throttle. It twists WAY too easily!!!!!)
