i would take the ducatti if i had the money that is one bad ass bike. my pops used to have a 996, but my mom made him sell it, she said something about him not being able to see me graduate high school or some bs. It is all good he still has his two old school bsa's and a old school triumph. The triumph is 292lbs. with a FULL tank of gas and it is 850cc, that thing hauls, now if it was only running.
