Thanks for the heads up but I think you have this posted in the wrong section.

man, thanks big time for posting this.
I got to ride the S model with a 2in1 Termignoni pipe and that thing was a blast!
they took us on a ride about 15-20 miles long with a few nice turns..it definitely made my day.

getting back on my DRZ after the ride was...interesting

The weather would not cooperate with us so our ride started a little late and got cut short when the sky opened up.

I rode the S model as well with the slipons (S model = Ohlins suspension, better brakes + some carbon fiber)

Much better behaved then I would have thought but conditions prevented really allowing any real tests. It seemed geared really tall but it wasn't a problem for the 1100 motor.

I thought the way the starters worked as cool as well. one touch and the bike did the rest.

The guys running it seemed to know a lot about the bikes and were happy to discuss the differences.

I can see why people like the sound of them so much, very addicting.

Very nice of Ducati and the local dealership to put this on.

Thanks to both.

Even with the slipon, it was quieter than I thought. The vtwin rumble was nice though.

I'm glad I made the last ride before the storm came.

God I wish they did a demo day at a track...

Dongie - was this on Saturday or Sunday? I think I was right behind you on Sunday with a blue Arai full face.

Sunday. I had a blue 661 mx helmet.
If I was complaining to you that it sucks to ride the Hypermotard in traffic, that must have been me
