Hi Everyone,

Hennjean here from White River, Mpumalanga South Africa.
I am now the super proud owner of the most beautiful bike ever made!
In 1985 I got my 1st bike, Suzuki JR50 and it's been me & 2Wheels ever since. There have been long breaks of not riding in between but I've been on & off many moto's over the years.
The last few years since returning to South Africa I've been doing club level enduro racing, did the bronze route at Roof of Africa in 2014 and hope to return this year.
I've always wanted a super bike and have had a passion for Ducati since I had the privilege of working as pit security (Franzesco Chili & Troy Corse) when WSBK visited Kayalami SA in 1997.
Just over a week ago I decided it was time so I rang up Ducati SA, asked a few questions and I was on way before I could say 'Ducati". I had never ridden a Ducati and do not have much experience with super bikes but once I saw this beauty in flesh I knew there was no turning back. I decided to take the bike for a test drive just I would feel better about saying it at least did a test drive :)
I don't have words for the exhilaration I felt whilst clicking through the gears and using a quick shifter for the first time, WOW WOW WOW, I was immediately in LOVE!!
I've since done about 300km on the bike and would really like take her to the track. As soon as my leathers arrive I'm checking into super bike school, man I can't wait!
