The first pic was about 3 weeks ago when I got the 600, then I was made a good offer by an 'Inmate" ( as they call them on ADV) on a 900.
The gate and all the fence posts also seem to have disappeared too.

Well....bought a 94 600SS off a mate who decided it was not for him.
I had an injected one a few years back but found the riding position too prone for my liking even after clipon swaps and risers.
The 600ss was a hoot to ride in the twisties but probably needed some $$ spent on the suspension.
Crisis mentioned when doing the Kaipara run a few weeks back he might be moving his 900SS on.
Well a test ride convinced me and the 600 is gone and got the 900SS to play with.
They are identical looking other than the motor, second exhaust and disc but quite different to ride. Much like an R65 is different to an R100.
The suspension set up that Crisis has had done makes for a very plush ( by Ducati standards ) ride. Did 300 odd kms yesterday and back/neck/wrists are fine.

Fucker, I did about 50kms at Woodhill yesterday and can hardly walk, bloody trees leaping out all over the place.






Glad you're enjoying it, it's pretty well set up.

Nice! The heart says "Ducati" but my brain is not convinced. Gotta be done sometime though, methinks.

There are some good buys out there.
Not what you would call a 'good alrounder'
