  4. Ridden the SS couple times this year. Did think this was going to be my next bike but have stuck with the VFR. Ducati' happy zone where wind blast perfectly balances body weight is some 10mph faster than the VFR. In comparison the VFR and SS are similar in riding postion with much the same peg - to - seat relationship just slightly tighter knee angle on the SS. The difference in bars I found the SS slightly further away than the VFR. Biggest difference just sat on them are the SS being slimmer and lighter. One thing to be aware of not sure what your weather is like compared to the UK but the SS is naturally heated from the V-twin's running temperature to warm you quite uncomfortable at speeds below 40mph and in traffic its really is a pain in the butt. I know of one person who has one and is looking at fitting a heat shield.
  5. Is that your Ducati?

  7. Tires!

    Metzeler Sportec M7 RR. A sporty road tyre that I've used on a cbr 600f, blade and now a vfr. Been around since 2014 so not a new tyre but cannot praise this tyres enough. Excellent stability over white lines, manhole covers etc and excellent on its side. Makes the vfr turn in more smooth and predictable. Confidence inspiring feels like you can really depend on the front. Great grip mid corner encourages big lean and early throttle. Great grip from cold. You trust them implicitly. On the exit hooks up and fooks off. Finds traction over bumps and never had any TC intervention. If you want improve the grip and turn in of your vfr buy the M7 RR. On the blade rear lasted about 4000 miles and front about 5500 miles. Should think the vfr should last somewhat longer. Don't ride through the winter but copes well in the rain and damp conditions. Ps Micheal Rutter took a road legal GSX-R around the TT course and averaged 122mph for one lap on these tyres. The owner took the bike home the next day on the ferry and a 200 mile trip home. Unofficial lap record for the fastest road bike round the Isle. Micheal Rutter on his superstock S1000RR with race tyres he averaged 125.3 mph.

  10. DAM exhaust is AWESOME (Review)

    Still think the delkevic at £175 is great value. Sounds great and now 3 years old and 15,000 miles still in fantastic condition. Plus free up that beautiful rear wheel [emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
