Back where i started..............ish

Post by nickyboy on Thu 15 May 2008, 11:41

4 years ago, i started my biking life, and my first road bike was a ducati 750 monster,

then after 2 years came my current blade and i sold the monnie,

Ive now partially headed back to the italian darkside, i still have my blade, but i have now added this to the collection.



This my friends is a Ducati 998 Matrix Edition. One of ony 150 in the world, and as far as im aware only one of 5 in the country.
And its an absolute f**king animal. I thought my old 750 monnie was torquey, this thing is insane!

Ill still be keeping the blade as my main hack, but the lure of another duke was too strong, its just got so much character!

enjoy, i know i will

150 made and the bloody yanks took 130 of them ...How tight is that eh !!! Lovely looking bike though. They really have stood the test of time from when they first came on the scene in the 916 guize. They still look the danglers.

Very similar, i think BRG has got a bit more brown in the colour mix. Never seen this shade of green before, thats why i love it so much!
