    OT... Kinda

    Does anyone out there ride a Ducatti or BMW sport bike? I am in the market for a new bike and I have been considering these bikes but I would sure like to talk to someone who rides them. I have always been on metric motorcycles for the most part. Only European bike was a KTM dirt bike.

    As for the MTB content here is my new DH sled....

    Nice sled Jim! Beautiful ride. So are you staying put in the area?
    Also, do you still have your Dirtbag? If so, is it a Large? Thanks

    Looks like I am going to stay put for moment. I sold the DB and replaced it with an Intense Uzzi... large. You looking for a DB?

    I am looking to test-ride a L since you and i are about the same size I think. I am debating on whether it makes more sense to get another (newer) Coiler or put together a whole new (and longer travel) bike....I just don't want to buy a bike I've never ridden. Know anybody in town who has a L DB?

    awesome DH bike. You have good taste, and apprently some deep pockets!
    anyway, having owned several street motorcycles in the past - I really like the lines of the ducati. I would think the Ducati would corner better and is a bit faster to flick around, but being air cooled, might not be as smooth power delivery as the Beemer?

    It prolly has more low end torque then the beemer tho - so better off the line?
    Ireally like the looks of the frame on the Italian bike!
