    I have a cbr 929rr tuned up to around 155 hp or so. If you are planning on being a squid like it sounds, get some armor, and get t he shittiest bike you can find. Good luck and dont be too much of a fool and give the rest of us a bad rap

    Thanks :big grin:

    I didn't have any problems but I only had it for about a year and put very few miles on it so I can't really speak about longterm reliability or anything.

    :cool:

    hey i dont mean to be intrusive but what is the "mugatu story"
    i reember coming on this board and you owned an S4 and i think you did work in semiconductors or something like.....but then i looked and see you got rid of everything and had no job for a while

    did you quit? get canned?
    sorry if this seems rude but i was just curious

    i thought squids were the yahoos you see riding around town with no protective equipment and doing stupid things in a reckless manner that endangers innocent people...................not someone who wants to learn tricks and handle their bike in a different way from racing

    I quit to go back to school and get my MBA - graduated and job market sucked. Finally decided that the management crap is not for me anyway so I'm looking to get back to my old job in semiconductors :big grin:

    PS. Still no job :)

    You do not do tricks on a ducati! one wheelie it to much and you will blow the engine 2 wheelie it too high and oil will spill on your rear tire..... it is a bad ass bike to ride and for the track not to stunt.
