    I've been riding Harleys for that long too..still do, of course....but I have seen some some idiots in some of the large group rides I've been on. There's always at least one that ignores the captain and feels the need to show off.

    I think it has to do with price, I can't ever recall seeing an ####### on a Ducati either.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    One of my first bikes was a Honda CL77. Iron 305 twin "scrambler". 1965..1966??..don't recall exactly. Anyway, I bought it as a basket project for $50, and got it running (thanks to JC Whitney..there was nothing they didn't sell parts for back then). Saw one of those recently sell for $7000...in the same shape mine was when I dumped it off for $150.

    That one was a huge step up for me. The bike I had when I bought that one was a Benelli (Sears Roebuck sold them) 350 pushrod single. Had two gears that still worked....first..and fourth. Had to scrap it when first went out.

    ;-p

    If that jockey shifter isn't intimating,,,,That foot clutch gets them everytime,
    I rode a Indian chief once, that right jockey and left-hand reverse throttle was really unnerving...

    As well they should. Chit fer brakes...handled like dog poo.. But it sure drew a crowd once I'd safely managed to park the damned thing.

    Good looking scooter sir, my second Sportster had 6" over tubes, the good part was it was a xlch, much easier to start in the cold with a button. I did coast to coast with it, one time and one time only.
    Was that a 45 or a 74 flathead ? What year?

    I had a 1995 Ducati SS SP.
    Loved that bike and behaved.
