Looks great and I'm sure you will enjoy it. I'm about ready to get my Warrior out and take her for a spin. All she needs is installing the battery and an oil change. Just waiting for the weather to warm up just a bit.

What size bike is that? Is that what the Ducati sport bikes look like now? I remember them from back in the day..late 80's, early 90's when I had this exact bike here...

YIKES!!!! .Have you figured out where the fuel pump is yet?..... Make sure you buy all the "Ride to Live, Live to Ride" gold plated crap. Oh and put those braided lever covers on with the streamers.....

Mercy.....

When you change your handlebars, buy a "Fly by Wire" throttle grip sensor because that new computer driven crap doesn't use a throttle cable. When you install the new exhaust just tow it someplace that can remap the fuel injection....

4 wheels move a body; 2 a soul
Nice looking bike, enjoy! Like the color, I usually try to get my bikes in black as well.

If yours is the Road King, mine must be the Court Jester


I present the Bionic Marshmallow. Or Born to be Mild. At least it matches the dog.

Installed new battery last week. 7 years out of the old one. Cruise control was intermittent and fixed that yesterday. Entertaining getting Historical Vehicle plates for it but with my luck I'll get busted.

Looks sharp. That body style is really popular right now. At least where I am. My brother-in-law is trying to sell his Fat Boy and is having a hard finding any takers.

It's 937cc. It's a rare bike, of sorts. In Europe it is reffered to has the "Supermoto" class. It's a dirt bike of sorts that has lots of suspension travel, but rides like a street bike. 114hp and 400lbs.

Ducait makes full on Superbikes as well. Google "Panigale V4". Mine is a Vtwin, but Ducati started making V4's to compete in the world superbike races.

Lots of high tech stuff on them now. Up/down quickshifter, ABS, Traction control, blue tooth map integrated to dash.

Supermoto, dirt bike with road tires.
Useful if you live where I do and have to travel down lumpy fen roads.
