Old Ducatis are like old girlfriends, best to leave them in the past. Newer Ducatis are better. We just got an 11 or 12 Ninja 1000SX in at work. Looks nice, Im going to take it for a ride tomorrow. I know the new ones are improved but this one looks nice too.

Couldn't agree more... there's a '14 1000LT about 35 miles north of here on Cycle Trader that's calling to me pretty loudly.
As soon as I get back from Deee-troit from delivering this marinara-muncher I'll have half the dough right there.
It would mean giving the ZRX its walking papers, though, and I'm not sure that a good idea. When you've got a good bike that you ride much of the time and does what you ask, maybe letting go of it isn't so smart.
Of course, I make no such claim.
