Don't worry the Thundercat is safe and well!

I have traded in my FZ1S for this little beauty:

Ridden 200 miles on it so far and love it. Great noise!

First time since 1988 that the flagship of the fleet has not been a Yamaha of some description

Only ridden home so far and you can only have so much fun on the A11 and A14!

Sounds glorious

Done 120 miles on the last tank and the light is not on yet

I doubt it will match the Yamahas for dependability but I didn't buy it with that in mind. Just a bit of fun.

Those things do sound like monsters. Very Happy

One of the blokes I used to go on ride outs with had one Link and it sounded insane going through some of those small villages in the Borders with narrow main streets. Cool

So the duke is for playing and scratching around on and the old faithful, for the longer trips?

This will soon be classed as a 'Thunder-duke' site soon with all these folk on here going to the dark side of Ducati.

No break downs and yes the Thundercat will be used for the long runs now. The Duke is the fun blast machine. I just like looking at it too!

Liked your description of my run home Chris!

We must get all the Dukes together at some point...maybe I will bring it up to WeeMac14!

Ahh, Tony, Tony, Tony!

See if you say it often enough you start saying it in an Italian accent lachen 
Why am I getting visions of your bedroom talk!

Anyway, welcome to the clan. Or should that be 'The Mafia'.

The bike looks great green smile Can't wait to see it for real. Enjoy - I'm sure you will!

Chris

It's how Rossi used to say it but then again if his English wasn't up to scratch he may have been trying to say something a lot more derogatory!! Wink
