    I never understood the fuss for Ducati's until I bought one... Few evenings in the garage required as the old girl had been left to corrode but she's acceptable now (full nut and bolt strip down planned in the distant future but as the 748SP's are just going up & up in value I'll hopefully enjoy it for a few more years before the full restore/ living in the house plan goes ahead :D

    The best induction noise I've heard on a motorcycle.. and I've ridden/owned a lot of bikes over the years!

    Did a small review on it a few years back, hasn't been ridden like that in a while - fear of break down or mechanical failure £££ :rolleyes:

    I had an 848, a 2008 that I bought with 2300 miles on the clock, it had a full Termi system and associated ECU and air filter. I loved the bike, it was a second, the main one being a R1200GS Adventure.

    I did a track day and the MCN journalist attending commented that he found the 848 the best Ducati for road use. the balance between power and handling are just perfect.

    My son now has it, we get our local racers to service it. It would look good in my front room, it's a work of art.

    Just picked up a Panigale 1299s from Bury yesterday. Quick trip to Leeds and then back to Southampton. It was "reasonably" comfortable. Not touring bike comfort but not bad for a supersports.

    OMG it's quick though. Different world quick to road cars of any sort. On full chat banging up the quickshifter its the first bike I've had that you really need to think about holding on. As a side note... it'll also do 50mpg at 75-80!

    I've not long started a DOCGB branch near me - the meets are going well so far!

    How do you find the termis? The standard pipes are bloomin loud as it is!

    That's lovely though and some good bikes at the meet also.

    Can I ask where the carbon clutch cover is from?

    The Termis aren't much louder on tickover if at all. They're a deeper sound when running but again, not shouty. The std exhaust was 106.4db at Rockingham so pretty loud as std.

    The clutch cover is a Ducati Performance item I believe - I just had it satin lacquered to match the carbon fairings.

    I had a new 998 in corsa back in 2004, spent a lot on it, loved it to bits but had to let it go as second child arrived ! Don't regret doing that a bit, but like other posts above, the sense of occasion is massive, real pride riding the bike, didn't matter what speed, massive smile on my face all the time. For me its the Ferrari of bikes, sure there's faster, but in the real world that doesn't add up to much. There was only one downside, I couldn't leave it anywhere, not even for 10 mins - my garage was impregnable as a result - so if you go for it, invest in a good level of security, never leave the garage door open for more than a minute !

    I would agree, so long as the baffles are in. Take them out and it's inconviniently loud, I had to push mine to the end of the road to start it on a Sunday morning, when you open it up, well don't do it near a copper.

    It's an absolutly amazing sound.

    I took mine out at point of fitting. I didn't think it was that bad to be honest! Here's a quick video of it on the dyno so you can compare before and after sounds...

    Had a good weekend bonding with this. I'm certainly going to get through the supercorsas quickly!
