ya I decided that im not going to have my current fairings fixed at my body shop (which I recommend if anyone needs any work for car/bike done). Im not doing it because of there work. But because I just dont want to deal with repaired fairings. Instead I won a brand new lower fairing on ebay and should hopefully arrive before the 2nd. I also got a mirror from someone on Ducati.ms. So that just leaves me with the upper and the air fairing.

edit: no get together. to cold.

Hey James, that's great to hear you're going to be getting your bike back up and running again soon (it's hard terrorizing the 'hood by myself ya know >:D ) Ebay has come through for me on numerous occasions with various Monster carbon fiber bits, and the occasional piece of riding gear so I bet you'll get it all sorted out soon...

As far as riding down to AMS on Saturday goes, if we leave early enough in the afternoon - like before dark (which is right around 5:30 or so) - I'll meet-up with you on the bike. If it's later than 5:30, I'll drive the car :embarassed: Not real wild about riding around at night.

So when and where do you want to meet?

Lisa

What time are you planning to go? I'm planning on going on Saturday but not sure when. Maybe I'll meet some of you there.

I'm definitely going but it may be in the mid to late afternoon. After 6:00pm I'll be riding herd on my 10 year old while Jen goes out with some girlfriends for an annual get together. May even have to go in the car... how embarrassing! If the weather is OK I might bust out a bike. If ya'll meet close to my part of the world I may be able to hook up. Wonder if Jeff will let me sneak a peek of the 1098 before 6:00?

Seriously... Gonna drive the silver bullet. Evening temps in the 30s... Plus, it might be nice to show up some where without helmet hair.

For once.

So, does the 1098 have heated grips? I think it's safe to assume with the under-tail exhaust that it's got an adequate bun-warmer (in the finest Ducati SBK tradition...) [cheeky]

I dunno but I have heated hand grips I dont use on my 999.

Not that there is any thing wrong with that!!! I'll try to bust a bike out but it will be mid-late afternoon at AMS. Gotta be home by dark. Hey, for anyone else foolish to go by bike, please be careful, Woodall is totally covered in ice-melt sand, it will take weeks for that s**t to get off our roads. At low light or dark you will not see it. All the highway overpasses suck... major skid demon!!! Again, please everyone, watch your behind on those highways and ramps in the dark. See ya'll there!!

The sand here in Fort Worth is all over. I would have tried to ride in the cold but not with this much sand on the road. See you all there.

Can't make it - I work every second weekend... So if y'all don't mind, put down a down payment, agree to pay the bike in full over , say, 4 years, and leave it under my Christmas tree? (Red please) Between y'all, it's only a few bucks a month towards an old man's happiness! An' 'sides, if ya already have a 999, ya can afford it!

ROFLMAO!

Oh well Ducandcover, if you can't make it down there this time I'm sure AMS will have a few more sittin' around soon enough... (dammit...)

And I don't know if all o'y'all have been followin' any of the press about the track test of this bike in Kaylami (sp?) but let's just say it kicks arse n' takes names. Holy cow, it's one bad ride [thumbsup]

Happy Birthday James!

Not ridin in. I rode in yesterday to have my 520 conversion done by Scott (FYI, great job AMS and Scott bending over backwards to make it work in the middle of setup for tonight), and IT WAS COLD!!!

See you all tonight and will fill you in on how long it took me to thaw out! I'm also bringing a good friend who I'd like everyone to meet. He'll be buying his Daytona 675 next Jan or Feb and will be joining our crew. His name is Nick. Please make him feel welcomed (I know it's a stretch for all you folks, especially knowing how I was treated, but please try [laugh]) and congratulate him on buying his ring for his soon to be fiance.

See you all there!
