Hi folks

A couple of weeks past now, I bought my first Ducati. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful red 959, 4000 miles on the clock but in great condition.

I really learned to ride motorcycles two years ago, in my late forties, because I thought the sports style Ducatis were so amazing. I saw them in my local Ducati dealer here in Glasgow (great people) about four years ago and was blown away by all of them. They looked exciting and so vibrant I wanted to own and ride one. So much so that it was worth going through the laborious process of learning to ride and getting a full licence.

I had gone a Vespa 125 nearly thirty years before, but had never had more than a brief encounter with a proper motorcycle. I am happy to say I have now sorted that out before time ran out for me.

I learned to ride on a Suzuki 125 van van(brilliant and charismatic wee bike which I wish I had kept) before buying a BMW F800 GT, which was ok but never an exciting ride,although competent enough.

Anyway now have a stunning glamorous 959 which feels awesome every time I even start it up. 300 miles in now.

Feel really excited to join the worldwide 959 fraternity finally.

So to summarise:

Hello from Bearsden, just outside Glasgow, Scotland.

Hello and good morning from Swanton Vermont, USA.
I am glad you made a leap of faith. You as I am sure have already found out in your first 300 miles have made a great decision on your new bike.
The 959 is a very competent machine. I bought mine a year ago and have already given her 14 track days, doing 15&16 Sunday and Monday.
Enjoy the ride my man.
