Well I went and did it again. Bought another Ducati! Got a new 07 Sport 1000S

The thing ROCKS!!! I don't have any pictures of it yet because I've been pretty much riding it every day light hour I could since I got it on Friday. But pictures will be coming.

Got rid of the ST I had but never rode because it never ran. CPS got it running but I didn't get a real good warm and fuzzy that it was fixed for good or ust for now. So while it had value as being a working bike (thanks Ben) I traded it on my new love. It is incredible. Perfect compliment to the 998 for a street bike. [thumbsup]

Thanks Ben and Lucy for making it an easy transaction!! [clap]

very nice....you gonna miss the dry clutch?...or are you gonna look into getting all the engine casing and everything to do a dry clutch conversion?....also....you gonna do something to save yourself from the tubed tires in an emergency like getting some rims that you can use tubeless??

Congrats, got my eye on a GT, waiting to see what the 2 Tone looks like. BTW the risers from an ST3 bolt right up to the Sport if you find the stock position too low. - Gene

Already talking to Donnie about what it would take to put the dry clutch on her. When I do the 600 mile service going to take the side case off to take some measurements to figure out feasability aka cost.

Not worried about the wheels or the tubes. I have a feeling I won't have any issues in regards to that.

There are kits to make spoked rims tubeless. If you are interested, I can dig up a link. Or you could do the home brew method for under $10. I have done the $10 method on my DRZ and it works flawlessly.

Other than the cool sound, what would be the point of changing to the dry clutch?

Oh, congrats on the sweet new ride. [thumbsup]

Hey man, sorry I didn't hook up with you to ride this weekend. I came down with the flu pretty hard. I was out with Karen letting her get use to the M800 on Sunday and was so out of it I was dangerous, so she put me back on the couch and made me watch Baliwood films. I can’t tell if I’m still sick or if my headache comes from lack of believable plot and inability to act, sing or dance.

It was kind of funny. We went there not sure of what was going to be the outcome. Casey did a marvelous job of fixing the ST, but was brutally honest when he said that there is no way to tell on that machine other than riding a few hundred miles to see what was going to happen. I'm 100% confident that the ST will give some happy rider years and years of trouble-free joy. It just wasn't going to be Liam.

I am in love with his bike and wish I was about 2" taller so I could ride it without being on pointe leaning it to one side. At least it has a comfortable passenger pad, so we will be able to ride two up. Out of the tail seats I've been on, I've had the fewest on Liam's bikes total. Well, that's not quite true. I rode to lunch one day on the tail of a Rebel 250 with a man who weighs 250 pounds. *EEK!!!* My ribcage is still a bit more flattened.

Anyway, we had a blast riding both days this weekend. He's more than halfway done with the break-in period! [thumbsup]

Are you going to put a performance exhaust on it? Ducati Performance should be offering a Termi system (w/ECU and air filter).

Ducati already has 2 differnt Termi systems listed on their accesories web site. Just need to know how much to determine how soon I'll get it.

For the dry clutch, to me it's what a Ducati is supposed to have. Especially the sport classics. They are so old school its a shame they don't have it.

way to go. Sounds like youll have some more fun than with the ST. As much fun as the SBK is, it definitely lacks some streetability that the SC should fix for ya. [thumbsup]
