Awesome bike for play slick, plus it looks very well maintained and has all the good bits. Congrats! Is the 848 coming soon to keep it company in the garage since you don't have a real street bike now?

I was at the Ducati dealership yesterday...but didn't bring home an 848. I graduate from med school in May 2010 and the wife and I decided to wait until then to get one. We just had a baby so my wife quit work. It changed the finances a bit. I'm having a blast on the 'tard but I already miss having a street bike a little bit so I won't be without one for too long.

The 'tard is very "liberating" though because already I've discovered some great places around my house that I would have never ridden before because you get there on dirt roads. I like the fact that I don't really even have to slow down when I hit the dirt and I don't mind the bike being dirty when I get home.

Today was the first time that I've had it off road and the Avon Distanzia's were an awesome choice for being a great sticky street tire and doing very well on dirt/gravel roads.

So awesome to hear! I'm looking at a newer 650R (street legal) myself, thinking to get some 17" wheels on 'er and a big brake kit too...
