Replaced my totaled 2000 Monster. (sigh  :'()

No mods yet (spent all my "spare" money on bike). Oh yeah, I do have a mod: Ducati billet valve stem caps... the coolest mod you can have in case you guys didn't know.



 Cheers all, Rob

Good Morning All,

I just love to ride.

Garage currently contains:
2004 Multistrada
2005 KTM 250 exc
2005 KDX 200
1980 SWM RS250GS

I just picked up the Duc from a guy in DC and rode back over the 4th.  Unfortunately, I had a bit of an off-road excursion (unplanned)...so anyone with some LH plastic bits for a Shiny Black Multi drop me a note.  Awesome machine btw.

Bikes I've had in the past (in ascending order):
1978 Suzuki DS80
1981 Yamaha YZ80
1979 Yamaha DT125
1985 Yamaha IT200
1979 Honda CB750
1986 Yamaha FZ600
1979 Honda CX500
1992 KTM 250exc
1993 Yamaha FZR600
1995 KTM 300mxc

1999 KTM 300exc
1994 Yamaha FRZ1000
2000 KTM 125exc

2001 KTM 300exc x2
2002 TM 300MX
2003 Buell xb9r
2003 KTM 450mxc

I used to teach enduro school but now just spend my time showing my soon-to-be 4yo son the basics of balance, braking, and throttle control.

Living with my family on the south side...working in Benton Harbor.

Looking forward to meeting some of the other group memebers.

Hi, I'm Ron from Bremen IN. I've been a big fan of Ducati for a long time. I hope to have one some day, probably a Monster. Right now I ride an 04 Aprilia RSVR.

I found out about this web sight when I saw two Ducati's parked in front of Hooples in Bremen. Now, I've never seen any other Italian bikes in Bremen, let alone two parked down town (I should probably mention the Harley that was with them to keep every one happy). I found the guys and they told me about this sight.  Of course we talked bikes until it was passed our bed times and they had to head north. I'm looking forward to being on this forum. ;D

Welcome to our little twisted corner, Troy.  (Awesome name, BTW ;D ;D )  Sounds like you and I have a few more things in common: a Multi, KTMs, enduro racing, etc.  The last time I was on a dirt bike was last fall's Turkey Creek Enduro.  Since then I sold my 200exc and am searching for a nice 400, but haven't yet stepped up to the pump for one.  I want to at least do the Stoney Lonesome Buffaloe 500 this fall, and wouldn't mind hitting a few others, maybe Wellston, which is a lot of fun.

I spend a fair bit of time throwing the Multi around dirt roads and two track, and a few friends with ginormous  dual sports and I try to hit the roads around south Michigan as often as we can.

Try www.multistrada.net for parts, and the forum there is a pretty good too.  Or, do like a few others have done and strip the bike down and do a HyperMulti conversion?

Look forward to meeting you at Moser's

Join us for dinner one evening in New Carlisle.  I'd sure love to check out your bike.  We usually have quite a few Ducs there so you can get all the looking done that you want, but there are other makes as well - hell, your Aprilia would fit in better than some of the others but every one is still welcome  [thumbsup]

Post by: Desmocrat on July 10, 2007, 02:48:11 AM
Hey guys/gals,
  Hello to all.  I'm down in Louisville, Kentucky (close enough to Indiana isn't it?).  Riding a M695 and still can't wipe the stupid grin off.  I have about 4,000 miles on it now.  Ride just about every day to work on it, rain, shine, snow, etc.  Have only filled up the tank on the car five times this year.  Normally, I get out for a few hundred miles on the weekends too.  Longest stretch so far was a ride down to Deals Gap (320 miles from here).  I'm planning on a slightly shorter trip, perhaps twice, in the next month up to Mid-Ohio.  I'm sure this is where I will meet a few of you guys.
  I'm 48 years old and work as a designer for a local engineering firm (full on 3D CADD stuff).  This is a second career as my primary training was in metal sculpture production and restoration and also photography in the military.  I then taught scuba diving and was an avid cave diver, then on to a stint with a land surveyor, where I began to pick up the CADD skills.  I like to travel and have lived and worked in many places here and overseas and in my wanderings have published two books (one on Kyoto, Japan, the other on Cambodia).  Spent a bunch of time in India, learned to speak in Hindi and had a surbahar built (a surbahar is like a bass version of the sitar).  My son is a chassis sub-assembly guy for Dyson Racing (LeMans P2 cars) and a Ducati wannabe, he came very close to owning a 1098 until he got the insurance quotes (but his driving record is less-than-perfect).
  Bikes?  I love 'em and fell in love with the Ducatis back when I was in the service in 1977 and saw my first Duc, a 900 SS (I have that 1977 magazine article that sealed my fate).  I was riding a KZ1000 back then but gave it up after school and moving to New York to learn the sculpture thing.  the 900 SS never lost it's appeal to me and one of these days I will find one.  I thought I should work my way into Ducati life with a new model though and started with a 695.  It really is all the bike I really need.   But then do any of us ride what we need, but what we want?  I might step it up a notch to an S2R sometime before doing a vintage bike...will just see how it unfolds.  I'd like to do some classes on performance riding and some track days, but with just getting my wife immigrated here (she's from Thailand), I have to give the impression that she is my only love (I'm sure you D'isti understand what I mean).
  Anyway, the cell number is 502.418.5459, if you are in Louisville, give a call...if you are on your bike, we'll go for a ride...if you are in your cage, we'll go for a beer.
  Stephen Bradley a.k.a. Prem

Broke your hand off your wrist? :o  Did they super-glue it back on? [laughing]

I used to go to the Rider MC property in Topeka quite a bit, but the club leaders & I are having a "difference of opinion" relative to membership responsibilities vs. property access.  We're all still friends, just a disagreement is all... I'll tell you over a beer or three at Moser's.

Good luck on the Jack Pine... never done that one before, so a full report is required. ;D

Normally, our DS trips are kind of spur of the moment, but I will definitely let you know as soon as I find out.  Tip: with 450lbs, you don't let it hang out very far, or you won't get it back... don't ask how I know.

I'll have to fill in the deails for you Thursday...it's a long story...


...having a "difference of opinion"...

yeah...that sort of happens...that seems to be the issue for me also...rode a few times but seemed to want to race in my free time rather than pick up garbage along the highway...

I'll fill you in on the Jack Pine...provided I feel up to it...i've been working out (mowed the lawn) and watching what i eat (hohos, funyuns, and pizza rolls)...so as you can tell...i'm in excellent shape...that is if you agree that round is the pinnical of shapes....

anyway...i digress...

i have only seen 2 ducs drive past town in my 7years here

I love those things. I looked at one before deciding to stay with Ductati.

Little bit to dedicated of a sport bike for my needs. As a second bike (if I ever have one) I would love it. Of course a 1098 wouldn't be bad either.  :L

Anyway,nice bike.

I can't believe I never posted my intro -

I am a 31 year old college student and proud owner of a daily ridden 2004 Monster 1000S in the fastest, most desirable color (red) [thumbsup].  I am from Valparaiso, Indiana, which is about 50 miles from the Illinois border and 10 miles from Lake Michigan.

I am one of the founding hooligans; it was Grifo and I that first dreamed of this club over a beer and a burger.  I am webmaster, vice president, and presently treasurer of the club.

I'm the one in the middle  ;)

Welcome Dirk
 Hope you enjoy the your new SS. Some of us from up north were in your neck of the woods a couple of weeks ago. But I think a trip down that way, again, is in the works in a few weeks.

You're livin in good country (colubus/brown county), for ownin a Duc

Ok   I am trying this.   Nathan  live around 54th and Meridian in Indy.  I had an '05 s2r800  just bought an '07 S4R"s". I have not yet made any mods.  Prob get a chip.  Pipes maybe arrows or termi's  but I like the stealth of the stock.  Once I get some more time I will know if I want the 14t sprocket.

 Welcome Nathan nice bike good choice ;) when attaching photos from photobucket use the last link, at the very bootom of your pic.
 I recommend buying the full termignoni system it comes with the race chip. so no power commander needed, and eliminates the 02 sensor. With a power commander you'll will also need a 02 emulator currently only available in Australia along with rapid bike module.
too much headache and it's a hit and miss. some people had luck using a powercommander for the 999 but the tuner has to be real good at it.  
 this is my beast with full termignoni system, open airbox with performance filter, race ECU, and full header pipes.

Mojo aka John here.

I came here via Grifo's link on the DML.  Looked like a cool place to hang out so I decided to add my name to the list.  I've loved Ducs since I was a kid.  Was going to get an S2R Dark in 2005 but then came down on deployment orders so I put it on hold.  When I got back the '05s and '06s were all sold out and my wife wanted me to get a new bike (long story but no complaints here) so I waited for the '07 models.  When I found out that Ducati was shipping the '07 models I went straight to the dealer and ordered the S2R 800 in solid black.  The S2R didn't come in Dark anymore, but as you can see from my mods in the pix it probably didn't matter anyway.  Oh, I think I have Carbon Fiberosis and I'm really digging the website background.   :L

Hey guys I'm Bloodlvst (Kyle). Just thought I'd pop in and introduce myself.

I AM in fact a bike fan (yeah that's right Bryan :P) so I figured I'd sign up and catch up on some biking conversation! :)

All things aside, I came across this site from Bryan, I've been helping him on the side to make some improvements to the site he wanted assistance with. :)

Cheers!

all you losers that are using IE will probably never get to appreciate all the work that Kyle did to make the site look right.  Get a real browser like Firefox or Opera and you will see what I mean.

Hell Mario, Firefox even has built in spell checking  [twofinger]

Hey, Grubby

That bike was our first duc.  It had a halo around it when hubby saw it and he had to have it.  Then a couple months later I found mine.  Mine has a few mods, mostly cuz someone wrecked it.

The guy that sold us the gray one covered up the naked lady and we just left it like that. Which is kinda nice for when I ride that one.

Nice to see a fellow enthusiast in the southern part of the state. So far that is 2 people besides my hubby and I.

seen you guys @ walmart before leaving and I saw a 695-red frame, black tank. think a lady was riding it. there's a red 900 here too somewhere, but I gotta track em down.

Post by: duc,duc,girl on August 20, 2007, 01:39:52 PM
the only other person we've met was an older guy(by older I mean has kids my age) that has a Monster 900, we talked to him for about an hour in the parking lot of the Penn Station on the west side. He was pretty cool. He's put 48000 miles on his bike so far. Unfortunatley we were so caught up talkin' about the bikes we didn't exchange names.

Hey, Fellas...Name's Keith

From: Holland...just a hop, skip and a jump away from Ireland and down the road from Santa Claus...Indiana.

Mario directed me!  Thanks, man.

I do not have my Duc, yet.  It's still makin' its swim across the Atlantic. :'(
It's the ever exciting Hypermotard 'S'. [thumbsup]

Currently own an '03 Gixxer 1000.  If anyone's interested it's for sale...maybe?!?

I've been looking for some hardcore Duc forums for guys in Indiana.  Thanks for getting this together, guys!

I haven't had time to read through this section, so I'm looking forward to meeting new riders in the area.

~Keith

Cold??? C'mon Grub...it doesn't get cold (or too cold to ride) in the Southern reaches of Hoo Hoo land.
Keith, don't listen to him.  About the only time it's too cold to ride is between Jan/Feb.  That's the mod month.  It does make the guys with the loudest cans peckers shrivel up the smallest.  But with all the extra gear on, we feel more safe and the pucker factor eases until we hit ice.
PM if you're ever over around L'ville.  Chances are that I'm up for a ride and ready to see how the HM stacks up.

welcome on board Keith. Where are you going to reside? 
Living in Holland, IN (Southwestern part of the state).

Hey, Grubby, I'd definitely be up for riding.  Where do you normally tear up the turns?

My buddy (rides an '07 Gixxer 750...Sweet bike) and I ride down by the Ohio River...Hwy 66 and 62 going toward L'ville.  We've also been messing around in the Loogotee area lately.  Just looking for some new tarmac to scrape up!  If it's nice this weekend, I'm sure we'll be riding...at least I will.  My buddy's girlfriend cleaned out a ditch on her '06 ZX6R early this year and broke her ankle.  Had plates and a screw put in it, but she has trouble going on long rides now.  Bike is back in tip top shape, she's not back to 100% yet, so he may not tag along.  Anyway, let me know what's up.  I'll keep you posted.

Hey Keith,
  That's what I was telling Grubby...when you get close to the Ohio River, the roads get twisty.  I've been riding a lot in Southern IN on 11/111 in that area between Louisville and Corydon and on the KY side out west of Ft. Knox between L'ville and Owensboro.  One observation that Rob and I made was that on the IN side, the roads have that strip of gravel on the edge of the pavement that is displaced into the road at damn near every driveway and intersection.  On the KY side, the roads are edged with wicked looking barbed wire fences (until you get over into race horse country).  We are moving into a new house this weekend, but after that, I'm game most weekends for rides.  Only exceptions in October will be the weekend of the 6th (Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta (racer troy and ducarlos, you listening?) and weekend of 19-21 at Barber for Vintage Bike Fest (TT, Rudge you listening?).  So far, every weekend in November is still open.  The cold doesn't scare us southerners.

I've passed by 11 on my way to Commonwealth...always was interested to know where it went.  Yeah, I've got a demo derby going on this weekend, but should be available after. 

...Barbed wire, huh, guess I should do full leathers in the hill 'o Kentucky!!! J/K...but I always where leather (except for pants...too much monkey butt!!! :P [laughing] :P)

No kidding, that damn gravel sneaks up on your arse.  Just about tucked mine two weeks ago on 450...damn! >:(

I'll have to let you know when my bike arrives at Commonwealth.  Maybe we can meet up and grab a bite.  Should be anywhere from 3-5 weeks :(

As for the cold...there's a limit to how numb my hands can get...oh, no there's not...ta hell with it! [thumbsup]

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: aaron999 on September 19, 2007, 05:44:52 PM
i was going to wait to get the 1098 but could not pass up the deal i got on the bike. picked it up for $7600 has 4000 miles, termi exhaust and ecu and all carbon and seat came on it i have done nothing to it other that clean it up and adjust the chain. plan on doing some suspension and clutch upgrades and get some track plastics over the winter so i can take it to putnam next season. granted it doesn't have the performance numbers of the 1098, but i dont think i could ever extract the difference in performance out of it. at first i did not like the 999 series bikes but now the looks have grown on me. just glad i finally got one of my dream bikes after riding for about 10 years.

it's really not a starter bike for me, i have had a rc51, r1, 2 gsxr 750's, cbr900rr, but i guess you could say it's a good starter ducati.

You should get down to CarrMoto, Indy Ducati. They are good at suspension set up.

  I too am going to start doing the Putnam thing next spring...we'll have to get us a trailer.

I know that racer_troy is planning on having his multi 1000 serviced there but hasn't yet.  I don't know how comparable that is though - yours being a 4 valve with lots of plastic covering everything would probably make a bit of difference.  I'd call up Ducati Indy and ask Matt Carr how much it would probably cost.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: crazyducdude on September 20, 2007, 06:12:03 PM
Nice to see someone else with a 999 on the forum an '03 to boot.  depending on your weight i would say to forget the suspension until you ride it on the track first, as far as the race plastic it is a must, and remember not all plastic is created equally, bought my 999 and the guy already had some plastic for the bike hotbodies i believe, the stuff sucks compared to my sharkskinz that i bought for my 996, they will cost you more but they fit better and i have been told that they crash better, i cannot speak from experience as i have yet to crash on the track.  If you are looking for a clutch slippers are the way to go, i have a hookup with Boulder Motorsports who can get STM 48tooth slippers used off of race bikes, still in good shape and the keyword: CHEAP. i have a Ducati Corse on mine and he recommends i put a STM on the bike. Another good mod is to upgrade your steering damper to ohlins, matris, arrow, etc. anything is better than stock. I haven't done this to my bike yet but i can deffinitely tell that the stock is sub par. 

hope to see you out!

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: crazyducdude on September 20, 2007, 06:54:40 PM
should be around the 180-200lb mark, im around 270 and the bike doesn't bottom out with me on it and hard on the brakes even though it is stock and everything on turned to make it as stiff as possible, i'm kid of pushing the limit w/the suspension.  looking at having the suspension revalved and resprung my weight.

This is V.R. from Edwardsburg, MI.  I have been riding since 1959 ... have owned a Cushman scooter, a 350cc single cylinder BSA which rode like a garden tractor compared to today's bikes but was a nice chick magnet back in my days at IU Bloomington.  After my Suzuki 250 X-6 with the nice Euro-look  fibreglass bodywork I got into dirt bikes after watching a close friend leave the road and go ass-over-appetite at about 75 m's per h one day.  After about a decade of various Suzuki two-stroke dust-kickers I decided to get back on the street.  Since then I have ridden Honda CBX-500, Honda 700 Sabre, Honda Shadow, Honda VFR, and now a Yamaha yzf-R6.  From my VFR to the R6 there were twenty years of technological improvements -- a world of difference.  Lots more horsepower per cubic centimeter and fuel injection, but more importantly and more dramatically, the improvements in suspensions make motorcycles able to hold the road like slot-car racers.  It's amazing. 
Only thing to complain about is this ... I lived for a dozen years in Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky, and now I am back in flatland.  -- There are only a few good curves on my 30 mile one-way commute to the office in Wakarusa.  If it were not for an understanding family that lets me take at least one trip a year to the Smokies or the Ozarks or at least somewhere in Appalachia I would probably be a complete nut-case by now.  -- Of course there are those four-wheeler drivers who probably would testify that I am a nut-case anyway, but that's a lifestyle thing, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, a fellow from Granger joined me and Gary and Pete, two of my six favorite riders, on the way home from Kalamazoo last Saturday -- and he left us his HoosierHooligans business card.  He was a skillfull rider, polite, safe, fun to talk with.  So I figured I'd check out the web site and say "Hello".
It looks like you guys know how to have a good time. 
I don't get to take off much, but I will watch your site for opportunities to maybe join some of you for a little riding.  My bike only puts out about 100 horses, but I'm mainly into cornering anyway so being underpowered (by 2007 standards, anyway) doesn't bother me at all.  My buddies have 1050 and 1000 cc's and can top 150 mph easily, but they don't get all that many opportunities to do so. 

I enjoy what I've had a chance to see of your Hooligan site.  My teaching schedule here at the trucking company keeps me pretty busy on Tue thru Thur, but I'll be back to check thing out later this week.  Ride hard.  Get home safely.  Have fun.  -- VR

welcome VR. Don't feel bad about inadequacies, Prem's 695 can outrun my 750, but I got a little older technology. And, 100 horse is pretty good in my book anyways.

Welcome to the board.  Just passed through your neck of the woods yesterday enroute to the covered bridge in the Three Rivers area.   [thumbsup]

If your talking Ft Wayne/Spencerville, 4.6 miles from me.

I'm Todd, spent a lot of time (way too much according to my wife) on the monter board in months past.  Hadn't owned a bike in 10 years and wanted back in.  To say I lusted after an S2R would be an understatement.  Long story short and a few major home repairs later, I have an '85 Honda V65 Sabre instead, 13,500 miles.  I've added 2000 in 2 months.  1098 ci V-4, 118hp, shaft drive, 6 speeds, supposed to top out around 160+, 11 second range 1/4  mile.  Oh yeah, near 600 pounds.  Sits somewhat like a dirt bike and corners marginally better than a pig on skates compared to you guys.  Fun stoplight bike, but it ain't no canyon carver by ANY modern sportbike standard.  Stock seat I can go 2.5-3 hours before I gotta get off (5.8 gl tank). 

Anyway, PM'd Mario a few times in the past and he invited me back regardless of what I rode.  I appreciate it.  Hopefully a red Duc will grace my garage sometime, but not tomorrow.  You guys ever get up around Ft Wayne, give me a holler.  I'd love to ride with you.  I'll let you  lead so I can hear your bike. LOL  Hope to have a pic up soon.  Putting a freshly painted fender on this week.  I'll be back from time to time.

Hey, fags. 

I ride a Monster. 

I live in Seattle. 

I fled Indiana because it is flat (and sucks). 

I shore up Cyrus' inadequacies. 

I deflate Grifo's overblown ego with my manliness.

I AM a unique snowflake.

oh god I can't stand the chicken dance OR the one they do with the rocky top tennessee song, makes me want to break a lot of stuff >:(

evansville isn't that bad if you can get past the stoplight thing. I need to run the freeway from end to end and count the lights. it's even worse downtown cause it's all one way streets with lights at almost every block.

you get out away from the city a few miles and it's actually quite nice

Sounds like a good plan, I know that Commonwealth puts one on and this year they did it with desmoworks.com.  I've taken my old Z1000 to the track, but wanted to get some seat time on the GT before taking it out, next summer I should be ready to go.

Hey Sarge, are you the guy I talked to one day at Commonwealth just before y'all were going to Putnam?  You fit the description (riding since big bang and on a GT1000).  I agree a Hoo Hoo day at Putnam next Spring.

I've just recently (1 month) begun riding.....my eye caught a 2007 Monster 695 to start my "life's experience" on and at the time could only attribute it to good taste. NOW I KNOW!!!!!
It might be spring before I'm ready to hookup with any of you but I'm really looking forward to it. 
I live near Charlestown IN but please don't hold that against me.  I'm a native Louisvillian but transplanted to the country....the roads are really nice here.
Anyhoo, if this is a mess, blame it on the Grey Goose!!!
Hope to meet/see you in spring.

Hey everyone. The bike bug bit me.

My name is Mac, I live in the Muncie area of Indiana. I've been a car tuner for awhile; lot of experience with BMW's and Jags. A couple years back I invested in a Suzuki 125 just for fun (really because my cars are always under construction) but always lusted over Ducati's. I finally took the jump and grabbed my 2000 748 a few months back. It's been the perfect bike. Fun as hell to both ride and tear apart. I guess modding is a disease.

Never thought about looking for a forum. I'm on a couple for cars and frequent their meets and would love to do the same here.

Love to get to know some of you.

Hi all,

I currently live in Madrid, Spain but, I used to live in Anderson, IN from 1987 to 1993. I went to Anderson High School and am an Indian and Hoosier at heart (and literally, I am of Indian origin). Grifo pointed me towards this board.. I know him from the DML (some of you may be on there also). I´m hoping to make it over to Indy for the MotoGP next year and visit family and friends, though I may need more than just a long weekend for that.

Anywhoo, I own a Monster S4Rs one of the first ones to be registered in my part of the world. As some of you may know it came to a bit of an untimely end at track practice in April this year. It is currently being rebuilt and should be ready to go soon. I also own a 1990 GSXR-750L the last of the oil cooled bikes in absolutely beautiful condition.

Here are some pics:

Hi all...newbie here.

Just bought a Yellow 2001 996. 1400 miles - bone stock (I bought it from a collector) and I'm very happy about it. My first Ducati, but I have ALWAYS wanted one. I wanted a Duc for two reason, first - the bike is beautiful and comes stock with many things the rice bikes make you pay extra for, and second - it's a Ducati! I mean c'mon - the other bikes are like belly button's "everyone has one". I wanted something that fit into a large small family so to speak. Harley was considered, but you kind of have to fall into that leather, chrome, chaps thing that I just didn't want.

I have to admit that I viewed this site prior to sealing the deal and just to look at the members great bikes and how much pride was in it - I thought, this is where I want to be. 

I live in La Porte, IN, 10 miles south of Michigan City, 20 miles west of South Bend.

I bought my baby in Chicago on Saturday, and it will be delivered the 1st week of December. I just can't wait. I know the winer is going to be tough looking at her and not being able to throw a leg over and go for a ride. But hey, I've waited 36 years, what's few more months!

I'm hoping that you guys "know the feeling" through the winter and can talk me through it to keep my sanity.

I'm looking forward to reading the post, contributing, and hopefully someday meeting up.

Cheers!

We'll definitely have to go out for a ride once you get your new bike!  I don't see any reason why you couldn't take it for a spin around the block if there isn't snow on the ground.

I live in Valpo, work in Michigan City, go to school at PNC in Westville, and regularly travel through La Porte on my way to New Carlisle so I am near by :)

There are a few other members that live in the La Porte area so you are not alone :L

Even though riding season is over, we (the north guys) still get together on Thursday nights @ Moser's Michigan street Cafe in New Carlisle. Join us anytime. Also, we are planning events throughout the cold month's, so keep an eye out. And feel free to throw an event idea out yourself.

Hi Alex -

Welcome!

Welcome aboard, Sebirossi.  You and Grifo will get along just fine (inside joke).  Can we put you in charge of leading the 2008 Hoosier Hooligans invasion of the IOM races over to the ferry?  A few of us have talked about this and if we can get our act together, we might make it a reality this year.  Although, I think the highest priority this year in Hoo Hoo-land will be the inaugural Moto GP races at Indianapolis.  You're welcome to come over here and join us for that.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: crazyducdude on December 20, 2007, 08:29:27 AM
there are quite a few tracks around, nearest to indy, as i'm not really sure where jeffersonville is located, is putnam park which is about 35 miles west of indy.  in michigan there are gingerman raceway and grattan raceway.  near chicago there are autobahn C.C. and blackhawk farms. In Ohio near columbus is Mid-Ohio probably by far the best track around...  as far as when to go sTD and myself kind of make it up as we go.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: MotoPsycho on December 20, 2007, 10:21:53 AM
welcome RAM, good to have you. Putnam is about as central of a location as we can get for Indiana. Although crazyducdude is closer to gingerman, I'd like to see us able to get a track day organized with a bunch of people and have a go at it. I've never even seen a road course up close before and I'd dying to get on one.

Putnam is a really great track, I've done my track day there when I had my Kawi.  I'll probably take the GT out once this summer.  I did NESBA and they seem to put on a really fun but safe day each time.

Chad here.
So......Ive finally pulled the trigger and made the decision to migrate on over to Hoosier Hooligans. I am originally a Hawaii-based Ducatista, where I worked @ the dealership, and rode year-round. So far the transition from Honolulu to Mishawaka has been less than glorious and to make matters worse, the movers showed no love to my Monster. Anyways, I figure I've got at least a few months to nurse my Duc back to health (btw, whats the nearest Dealership to South Bend.....Kalamazoo?)
Look forward to riding with you all in the spring.

Thanks for the warm reception, guys. I must confess, this is one good looking website, I'm impressed with the organization so far. I tried to get a similar thing going in Hawaii but it was hard when no one else wanted to put in the time or work. I think the fact that Hoosier Hooligans has made it this far, speaks volumes of the character and passion of each and every one of its members. I think I will fit in just nicely here.  Now if we could just do something about this awful weather.....

no it's my turn I guess ::)

I wouldn't consider myself as a local, if you are heading east and a couple of miles north you might find a little place named Buch am Irchel [laughing]

Ok, try to keep it short [police]

38 male, born in good old Germany, left a couple of years ago and spent some time in UK/Ireland/France/Italy/New Zealand and right now we are annoying the locals in Switzerland.

back to bikes 8)  TZR250, RD500, YZF750, KTM620.........................monster900s and since 2006 a 748R.

that's it for now and if you wanna join for a beer, more than welcome ;D

Hello all Just registered for this forum.  My name is Drew and I live in Indianapolis. I have been a long time Duc owner and currently have what the wife would call a crazy obsesion with Ducati. current bikes:

          1995 900ss cr
                  Ferracci 944 big bore
                  Ferracci carbon pipes
                  Dyno jet
                  reverse gear shift
                  k&n open box
             
           1996 M900
                  Carbon pipes
                  barend mirrors
                  k&n open box
                  steering damper
                  reverse shift
           
           1999 ST2
                  Givi box
                  k&n open box
                  cored pipes
                  laminar lip wind screen
                  heated grips
                  reverse shift
                  chip

           2001 996
                  Ferracci pipes
                  k&n open box
                  chip
                  marchesini wheels
                  full race fairings

          2006 Husqvarna tc 250
                  Just bought this bike so no mods yet. plan on many much to the disapointment of the wife

I have bowsed this site and many like it and figured it was about time a be a participating member of society. This is but a fraction of the rides that I have had over the past 29 years of my riding life (started when i was 6) so i hope to be able to contibute as well as gain knowledge from other members. Dispite my wife's nick name for me ( know it all) I do not and have found womderfull advice and ideas on this site. Hope to meet up with you guys some day and ride.

P.S. For those who have not checked out Ducati Indianapolis. It is a must. first class opperation. Bill, Matt, Mike , & Travis all know their stuff. As a previous Bike shop owner I think they know how to treat their customers and will be a great addition to the Duc and Indy community. The web is a great place for info but spend your $ with the people with faces shop local and shop often.

Drew

Welcome Drew!  That's quite a collection of bikes you've got there.  I can't wait to see some pictures :L

I agree about Ducati Indianapolis.  Every time I go in there I am impressed with their operation [thumbsup]


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Uncle Mofo on February 06, 2008, 09:31:36 PM
We do have a few Aprilia fans in here maybe they could help you find one.  PS  The Carrs I showed them the ropes that's why they are good  [twofinger]

i will be sure to bring that up when I go in this weekend to pick up some order parts.  [laughing]  Side bar Don Gary over there at Indy Duc used to be a customer of mine before I sold my shop. It was great to se a familiar face over there. The two wheel world can be quite small some times. Can't wait to see where i may have crossed paths with others in here.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: agaduc996 on February 06, 2008, 10:05:16 PM
That would be great. Have sseveral riding friends but only one with a duc ( 748)  so it would be great to hook up with some othe like minded (or out of mind) guys. With the ST2 in the garage there is no such thing as a bad day for riding if the roads are free of ice I will ride


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: BryanS on February 06, 2008, 10:06:58 PM
Well, I'll probably be driving the wheels down in the trunk of my car unless the weather changes sometime soon.  There is ice all over the place right now.  Anyway, maybe I'll be able to drag Mario down there with me and we can all go out to lunch :)

I went to the Buca de Beppo for lunch last time I was at the shop and it was tasty.  I've been wanting to go back.  I'm thinking that I might be down there somewhere around the 13th or 15th of Feb.

i think to post picks you need to post a few post (probationary membership last i think 5 post) once done you get a gallery setup or i think you can post them from photobucket or similar

not to jack this thread, but just for reference, the probationary thing just keeps you from seeing other member profiles until you post 5 times (I think it's 5 but it might be less, like 3).  I did this just to prevent spammers or crazy ex-girl friends/wives from creating an account and then scoping out all our members profiles.  If they want to see who you are they can post a few times first :)

Hello guys and girls, I think it's the moment to introduce myself.
I am Xam and I'm a young hooligan from Bologna (really near Borgo Panigale), Italy. You know Italy: that little happy country  famous for pizza, mafia, spaghetti, Pope, Colosseo... and where they projects and build up Dukes  ;D
So when the wheather is like (and even when it's not) I ride around with Camilla, my monster 695 my06.
I'm cofounder of a motorclub called D2MC and I already know some of you (hello Grifo). I've already seen some of your bikes and I'm really impressed.
here there are two pics of Camilla, as she was when I've bought her on 1st of August 2007
(http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/2579/14082007014gs9.jpg)
... and here you can see Camilla as she looks like now ;)

Yes, welcome. Nice bike, you really did a good job on her.

And, like Grubby said, don't worry about your English, you are doing fine.

Also, we won't hold it against you that you know Mario.

Felice motociclismo!

You are correct!  And congratulations!  You are the first person to recognize the name. They are most well known for their work on the 1983 movie, Risky Business. I've gone by that name on the DML since the summer of '06 with no comments. Thanks. ;D

Peaveybassist = Will
I live in Brownsburg, work at Dreyer & Reinbold Infiniti. Just bought a 2008 Monster 695 black/red.

My bike the day I signed for it at Indy Ducati. And btw, I'm up for a ride with anybody anytime, almost any length as long as I have the time for it.

Great looking Monster!  Welcome to the board.  I'm down in Bloomington, so if you're riding down this way, shoot me a note.

Hello from the North Star state.  My name is Bob and I recently ordered a 2007 Multi 1100s from my local dealer.  Found the site while searching for one online.  My brother lives in Indianapolis (Carmel actually) so I searched for dealers in the area that might have one.  Thought it would make a great excuse to visit him if I bought a bike there.  While that didn’t pan out I decided to join the club since I am going to bike down for the 500 and the GP this year.  Maybe find some kindred souls who could show me all the best bike haunts and rides in Hoosier territory when I’m in town.

Post by: Uncle Mofo on February 24, 2008, 10:35:00 AM
Bob welcome to our club :L since you planning on coming down for the moto gp I suggest you take advantage of the project Mugello seating.
Check the official Moto GP thread at page 12. All the info you need is there. enjoy your stay and post some pics when you get the bike.
         Ciao Mario 


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: heronboy on February 24, 2008, 11:00:49 AM
Thanks for welcoming me.  I read your suggestion about the Moto GP thread and might I add, holy sh1t!  What an awesome thing for the club to organize.  Damn right I'm getting a piece of that action.  And am I right in reading that already purchased tickets can be exchanged?  I'm meeting six other riders there and I could easily convince them to wear red for the weekend.  Problem is one of them already purchased tickets for the three couples.  Row Z in section H overlooking turn 16.

Assuming we could exchange all of those tickets, is the area for the Ducati clubs better or worse seating?  And are the seats on the outside of the track looking in or on the inside looking out?  Sorry for the noob questions but this will be only my second time to the track.  Never left my seat for the '06 500 so I don't know the layout very well.

If you belong to a DOC club (you do now just get some swag from the store) you can exchange the tickets by calling Zack at the IMS If you have more question post them in that thread and I'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge

PS should be some of the beast seats and looking out from the inside. :L

Save pictures somewhere like photobucket or flickr. Get the web address (url) to the picture. Post that web address in a thread with img tags around it.

It will look something like [1MG]http://www.yourpicture.com/is_here[/1MG]

Notice that I used a one instead of the I in the tags so you can read the tag :)

Yes sir, Zards with Jet-Hot ceramic. I've pretty much stopped frying Sidis now
Thanks, glad you like it
 Myself and another Duc rider (999 Parts Unlimited) are coming for Moto and are bringing the bikes(how could you not!) Already have tix in Penthouse B 1st row. Am going for the M. package as well . The lap is worth the price all by it's self, the rest is pure gravy.
Do you guys think we should swap tix or keep both? Also need  hotel recommendation please. :L


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: BryanS on March 01, 2008, 09:17:15 AM
There was some hotel info located on the moto gp thread in the events section.  Personally, as much as a penthouse might be awesome, I want to be in the Ducati grandstand with all the other club members.  I know we're going to have a blast.  They may be able to exchange the tickets you've purchased for the club grandstand area - that was discussed in that thread as well

Here's a link to the ticket sales info  http://www.hoosierhooligans.org/forum/index.php?topic=100.msg11809#msg11809

The hotel info was a few pages before that post in the same thread and the phone number in that post for IMS should be the right one for exchanging tickets if you are so inclined

Looking good mate. :)

Put ~80 miles on my "new" bike on Saturday, roads are still a bit nasty but fun otherwise. I really need a hugger. ;)

Thanks for the great reactions!  ;D
I've spent many many hours in my garage to make it look like this... it's nice to see it appreciated...

And yes, Palm is a brand of belgian beer and tastes good. Not my favorite but doable.
Ever tried Duvel???? That's the one you need to be drinking!   >:)

Hey Mr. Ice,
  That is one hot ass Monster.  I love the paint scheme.  And like Rob said, nice backdrops in your photos.  I stayed in your country for a few months back in the '80s and liked it...tried a few of the beers too.

Hey!

The backdrops in my pics are an old train station not far from where I live. It's a great place to do a shoot. The trains just stand there, no people in the background...
And people respect the trains, no vandalism, no grafiti,...

And well yeah,... Manneken Pis is just a little guy doin' his thing, but everyone wants to see it.
Don't know exactly where but there's a "Jeanneken Pis" as well somewhere, and that's a little girl squatin'...
We belgians must seem pretty weird with statues like this...  ;D

Hey all,

A pleasure to meet you all. Just bought my first Ducati and was very happy to find this owners club. 99 750 SuperSport. Can anybody give me an idea events, get togethers, etc. The website is great but hard to find stuff about you guys if you are new.

Thanks

BTW my locale is Noblesville, IN (NE Indy)

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?

no fee - totally free unless you want to support the club my making donations, buying t-shirts, patches or whatever. your probationary status changes when you reach a certain post number, I beleive 5 or 6 is how Bryan has it set up. Then you'll be able to see more things. Welcome aboard, glad you joined up. [thumbsup]

    Hello all, For my first post i would like to thank Mike,Matt,Travis and the rest of the guys at Ducati Indianpolis for separating me from large amounts of my hard earned money. I spent all day Thursday riding my new Tricolore in the rain. I didn't even mind so much that it was raining. It sure teaches you to be careful with the throttle. I took the long way home and then took a nap as I had worked a 12 hour night shift the night before. I got up and it was still sprinkling a bit.I went ahead and geared up and ran some errands. I put it in my garage next to my Harley and tried to pretend I couldn't feel the waves of jealousy coming from that side of the garage. It's supposed to be nice this week. If it is I may go up to Fort Wayne and meet a friend of mine for dinner and then ride back. That first service will come up very soon I think. I can't wait to get home from work and do a little cleaning. it was filthy after all that wet weather. At least the rain washed the last of the sand of the roads around where I live. Thanks for reading and happy riding.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Uncle Mofo on April 11, 2008, 10:12:07 PM
Welcome on board nice bike man!! Post up some pics when you get a chance.
Yeah I finally got to ride a bit last week here in Indiana, man I miss riding. I managed to put 1100 miles while down in Florida for bike week, but I miss running errands here in town, and ride after work every day. Hopefully one more week.
Looking forward to ride with you soon. Yeah Matt, Travis and Co. are bad news to my wallet [laughing]

Post by: BryanS on April 11, 2008, 10:45:59 PM
Many of us were at Indy Ducati last Saturday. Next time your there check out the giant Hoosier Hooligans banner we hung on their wall :L

Probationary status is pretty much jusy a way for us to catch spammers before they create a mess. Once you post 5 times your status will change. After it changes you can see other members profiles. That's about it other than your title changing.

Welcome!  Since you brought it up, is there something we (I) can do to make the site easier for new members to find things?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: BryanS on April 11, 2008, 10:55:41 PM
Welcome!  If your Tricolore was the one sitting in their front window then there are probably a few pics of it in our gallery already - a few of our members were lusting over it when we were there last Saturday. I'm sure more than a few of us will be jealous to see you riding it :)

Post by: giladl on April 12, 2008, 07:36:46 AM
Yes I was the Indy Ducati yesterday and saw the banner - nice. I am catching up on things and reading thru the different threads. I guess something on the home page to direct people to the right information.
How to join,
what is the club about, history?
where to get information on different topics
The letter from Bryan is very informative - but a bit long if you are just looking?
 
For example I had to read thru most of the MotoGP thread before I really go panicky and immediately called Zack at the Speedway to get MotoGP tickets. BTW I only got his voice mail so I hope to catch him on Monday  :)

Thanks

Thanks for the input - I've seen this club grow from 2 people to the size it is now and somewhere we (I) lost touch with the fact that not everyone is up to speed on everything - had you read the almost 14,000 posts among 600+ threads you'd have found all your answers, but that's certainly not how we want to greet new members :)

If anyone has any input on changing the intro on the front page, please let me hear them - I'd be glad to revise it

Had to. It goes on easily enough that if I need it for a day or two no problem.It spoils the lines. At least the bracket is hardly noticeable. It's supposed to be nice this week and if it stays nice I might try riding to Ft. Wayne to see a buddy.

What kind of AK is that, Polish, Chinese or other?????

Like the Halloween costume, I love Halloween also, we do a grave yard in the front yard  every year. We did a pirate theme on the side yard also this year. I'll have to check for some pics.

Oh ya, nice bike too.....

Snowman, The AK is a Yugoslavian M70 underfolder. I can put the bayonet on it for the ultimate in liberal scaring EVIL!!! I also have an Egyptian Maadi AK which is made on AK tooling built in Russia and shipped complete to Egypt. I love commie weapons. They may not be as sexy as guns from the west but you know they will work pretty much every time. My firearms budget is damn near what my motorcycle budget is!!! [laughing]

That's a Savage .17 mach 2. Very accurate. We were shooting little single serving containers of peanut butter at 100 yards with it. Great on squirrels to if you can pull off headshots ;D otherwise it takes them apart.

Hey bros and sistas. I'm the new guy. I just got an '07 S4RS, my first new bike and first Ducati. I'm picking it up from Indy Ducati Tues. and can barely sleep I'm so stoked! Other bikes I have are some old BSA choppers, a Triumph bobber that I'm just starting on and a Honda CB350F cafe racer. All are technically projects, collecting is a sickness I have. But, this time I got the real deal. I have always wanted to treat myself and finally have that opportunity so here I am. I have a couple buddies that are Hooligans and they strongly suggested I sign up. Looking forward to contributing and learning. I'll post pictures as soon as I have the bike in my garage. Thanks for having me.

Benvenuto, Butcher. Nice bike to start your Ducati experience! There are quite a few S4Rs in this group.

If you are so inclined, you need to look into MotoGP tickets in the HH section of the Ducati grandstand. Few tickets are left. Check MotoGP thead for contact info.

Again, welcome aboard!

DucLeone,

Grubby, Prem and myself have actually met up before.  Grubby swung by my area on his way to L'ville to meet up with Prem.  I had to resort to riding along on my Gixxer considering I didn't have the red rocket.  Those boys are passionate about Ducati.  It's great to be around guys like that.  I had the opportunity to see Grubby's bike before this winter project, so I can't wait to see it completed!

Wow, I take this as a good sign that the season has started, more than a handful of new sign-up (and new bikes) in a few days...awesome!  Can't wait till I can start riding more than a few days here and there.

It's somewhat disappointing, but the dealer continually told me "It will be here next week."  I heard it three or four times and at that point I began to wonder about the service of this particular dealer.  It just so happened that I found this fine machine at ducati.ms and started changing my mind about leaving the superbike scene.  Don't get me wrong, the hyper looks like a killer fun bike, but I do not think the roads around here will service the hyper like they do superbikes.  It's a dissapointment, but in the end I'm thrilled to own this bike.  As a side note, I did do a license plate mod on this bike that may spark some interest on other ducati machines...

They make a .17m2 conversion for the 10/22, just a barrel and bolt I think. I'd rather stick with my 10/22 w/ subsonics. If I gotta shoot more than 75-100 yds I'm getting out the .22-250. :L

Congrats on the 1098 Keith [thumbsup] I sort of wondered why you'd want to go from a gixxer to a hyper. I like the hyper and all, but it's not my cup-o-tea. Beleive me, I'm working 4 or 5 hours a day in the garage most of my days off to get the damn thing done. I can't wait to get it out again & show it off.

Hey bros and sistas. I'm the new guy. I just got an '07 S4RS, my first new bike and first Ducati. I'm picking it up from Indy Ducati Tues. and can barely sleep I'm so stoked! Other bikes I have are some old BSA choppers, a Triumph bobber that I'm just starting on and a Honda CB350F cafe racer. All are technically projects, collecting is a sickness I have. But, this time I got the real deal. I have always wanted to treat myself and finally have that opportunity so here I am. I have a couple buddies that are Hooligans and they strongly suggested I sign up. Looking forward to contributing and learning. I'll post pictures as soon as I have the bike in my garage. Thanks for having me. 

Hey its my Bro... (same fire -hizzzous different shifts).....   He has a very pretty pearl white wit ohlins suspension..I checked it out when I turned my s4r in for the 600 mile check. looks perty [thumbsup]  ...And now I pick my baby up with new clutch plate and stainless springs .. ((((but this is about him.)))) Luv you bro. you will never go back to the anti-performance bikes have fun be safe [twofinger]

Hi, my name is Angie. This is my Ducati Monster 620. I love the bike. Me and Ron (Snowman) worked on it today and adjusted the lowering link and dropped it down so it is more comfortable for me to ride. Now I just need to put some miles on it and get use to it.

So I met Bryan in class while attending PNC and am a fellow former Marine.  I just moved back to Indiana for school recently and asked him if he knew anyone to ride with, so he sent me the link to this site and assured me that it's alright if I don't own a Duc...

So here it goes,
Dan Hatten, currently live in La Porte, IN (S-East of Michigan City, 30-45 minutes west of Southbend)

Own:
2006 Honda CBR1000RR

And in case cars count:
1995 Lexus SC300
2001 Volkswagon Passat
1989 Chevrolet S10

Grifo asked me to define disabled and introduce myself, so here I go.

I retired from working 4 years ago with fibromyalgia and came back home to South bend in 2005.  I can still get around from time to time, and this year, I'm determined to get some riding in.  I lived in an LA suburb until 2005, and did a lot of riding down on the Ortega Highway (twisty) and up on Mount Palomar (mucho twisty).  I even got in a track day at Willow Springs, only to be put out on my third session when an ignition pickup failed. 

I've had my '94 900SS since 1998, and it has almost 58,000 miles on it.  It's stock, except for an Ohlins shock and almost new SP forks.  Oh yeah, and the Dyna coils which actually do make a big difference in how well it runs.

What else can I say other than where the hell do people ride in the South Bend area?  :)

Welcome on board again Hedge, whenever you ready and want to go for a stroll let us know.   We don't ride much around South Bend, most of the time we head for St. Joe MI or we head South. Every Thursday we get together somewhere either in New Carlisle or somewhere new to change it up a bit.

Well count me in.  I'm one of the rats who is jumping from the sinking ship.  I've been reading that board since the summer of 05' and it is sad to see it go.  Seeing as how I've been living in Indiana for the past 4 years I figured this is an appropriate home as any (compared to the CDC... which I will continue to read mostly for shits and giggles).

My name is Mike, and I'm a student at Purdue who is from the Cincy area and is currently working in Evansville. So I can be found riding anywhere between West Lafayette, Southern Indiana, and Northern KY.  I also used to live in St. Joe, and I see from Grifo's previous post you all like to ride up there (beautiful area). Like I said, right now I'm in Evansville, but I'll be moving back to Cincy (briefly) come next weekend. Then come early June, I'll move back to West Lafayette. I'm based all over the tri-state area and I ride all over that area too.

I don't ride a duc [twofinger] and ya'll can kiss my ass  [laughing].  Give me one year and I'll have an 848... guaranteed.  Well, here's to the future of Ducatisti on the interwebz!  [thumbsup]

Hello--

My name is Patrick.  I live in Troy, Ohio. I am a new rider. I took the MSF couse in March and have been building my skills on a used bike. I have an deposit on a 696 at Indy Ducati. I visited several shops before Indy Ducati. When I met Matt and Bill Carr my decision was made. They were great and spent a lot of time showing me their shop. Definitely planning on going to MotoGP [twofinger]  Look forward to meeting everyone. I will post pics of 696 when it comes in. Hopefully soon ;D


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: FreeDuc on May 10, 2008, 03:15:39 PM
Hi Patrick, welcome. What kind of time frame did they give you on your 696?

Can't wait to see one in person.

I copied this from the MotoGP thread for ya. (Ain't I a nice guy?)

"Tickets are $125 which includes general admission ($50) and a seat in the Ducati "Project Mugello" grandstand ($75). To purchase tickets contact Zack Houston at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway who is our group sales agent. 317 - 492- 8411.  Ask for a seat in the "Project Mugello" grandstand. Your members must be able to verify which club they belong to and the name of the club President.  Zack can also exchange any previously purchased tickets for these seats. These tickets also include a special Project Mugello fan package that among other items includes a lap of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on your Ducati!"

Our club president is Mario Calzone... oh no wait  it's Cavurro. [twofinger] Hi Mario!

Mouseman here from Indy. I have a 1992 851 and a new 2009 Monster 696. Love both. THe 851 is raw and mean and the 696 is, well, new. I am short so I fit pretty good on it.

Back on topic... Most of you know that I was born in South Bend IN, but I grew up in Italy. I just found some olds pics from my last visit in Italy in 2004.
This is the town I lived in from the age of 3 to 15 before moving up Northern Italy, where I lived up to the age of 22. At 23 I moved back in the US.
The beautiful Gioiosa Jonica in the province of Reggio Calabria. (down in the toe) ;)

Well, I just found the "intro" thread so I'll post up again (what I previously put in the Shoutbox).  my bad~~   :P

Own a 2007  Red & Black Monster 695.  Bought new in March '07 and have added just a few mods, most notably Termignoni Carbon Fiber Pipe Kit. 

I'm just a few miles south of Louisville, KY so if anyone is in my neck-o-the-woods, lemmeknow. Always looking for another Duc owner to ride with.

Oh yeah...  I should note that this is my second bike, the first one being a 2004 Honda Shadow Aero 750 and I'll never go back to a cruiser after owing my Little Monster.   >:)

Post by: Lillie Monster on June 09, 2008, 06:49:56 PM
Found you at the DML site.  I was looking for a place to ask tech questions specific to Monster's as I have had some issues with this bike that have led me to wonder what's 'normal' and what isn't.  For example, I was on a 140 mile Poker Run Sunday and it was extremely hot (99+ degrees in the shade) and the temp. indicator was hovering around 240 all day. Should it have been running that hot?  My rice burner was water cooled and it never felt hot to me while riding but the Duc certainly did.  It felt like I was sitting on a fired up weber grill!  Normal?  or have I got a problem with her?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Uncle Mofo on June 09, 2008, 07:25:25 PM
 In air cooled engines the HI temp light comes on at 330 so on a hot day 240 to 300 is fine, my liquid cooled one was running around 213 yesterday in traffic, 180/193 on the track it was 92+ out. the cooling fans kick in at 220 on mine. On yours, just ride faster get some air moving :L

Welcome aboard. If answers are what you are looking for you have found the right place. I have found plenty of helpfull info in her. Lots of good stuff in the archives so be sure to check out some of the old stuff as well. I was born in Kentucky also but only lived there for 7 months so can not really claim it as home. Grew up (if you can call me a grown up) out west. Kentucky is the closet thing there is when I want to find something that resembles a mountain. Plate tectonics and the glaciers were not friendly to Indiana. I will be down in KY on the weekend of June 20-21. If it works out maybe you could give me a tour of the good places to ride and refuel my belly. I will PM you when I know my schedule.

jeez...  I'll be in Nashville that wknd but would have loved to have done that.  Please do holler at me if you get back in this neck-o-the-woods another time.  I'm a transplant myself, btw.  Originally a cheesehead from Milw., moved here 18 yrs ago.  Once a cheesehead, always a cheesehead. GO PACKERS!  sorry Colts fans.  >:)   But I now claim both WI & KY as "home" since I've been here so long.

Thank you for the info and thanks to Grifo also for responding.  I'm going thru a learning curve here trying to figure out how to respond to individual posts.  I only see a "reply" button after the last post in the thread. Could use some tech advice here too.

If you've got questions, let er rip ! If we don't know the answers I'm more than confident that one of us will know somebody that does that can help out.

I do know the solution to your poker run heating prob. Don't ride in Poker Runs... can't think of anything more boring, (maybe golf).

Love the Black Monster with Red frame. Cool bike.

Hell if I know. I heard of em, but never participated. The way I understand it is you go on a designated route and at certain waypoints of the route, you pick a card, 5 in all. Whoever has the best poker hand at the end of the ride gets something.

i tried a poker run once...got bored out of my gourd before the first waypoint and took off...needless to say...i didn't win any cool harley door prizes...

...but i'm a better man for it...

on  a serious note, i agree with mario (did i say that out loud?)...the temps you are running are not a concern...make sure you are changing your oil with a good synthetic and using a good filter...otherwise...if it's just buggin you because you are ocd about your bike (not a bad thing btw), then beg, borrow, steal an oil cooler off a liter bike and attached at will...

see you down the trail...

Hello all - my name is Kal and i'm a ducaholic. Living and working in Indianapolis. I grabbed up the last tricolore monster from indy ducati a couple months ago  ;D

No pics yet other than the one indy ducati took before i drove off. As for mods, I had to start with smallish stuff since I'm BROKE after buying the bike itself: CRG lanesplitters, Speedymoto Kukri pressure plate & 10-spoke cover.

Also got my tix to the MotoGP race [thumbsup]

If you can point out any good roads I can start exploring, please let me know.  I know Ohio fairly well, but I know nothing about the Hoosier state.

Welcome Pat. The north end of our state lacks some topography but there are some hidden jems here and there. If you work your way just south of the big city you can find some great riding rather you are looking for historical sights and touring or if you want to create your own little Isle of Mann course. Did you set your gt up like this for the purpose of touring or was it for commuting reasons. I test road one of those and it seemed like it would make an excellent long distance rider. I am on my way out to dinner but I will try to PM you later with some route info in the north east. BTW where about in the Fort are you. My grand mother used to live between spring and state on lindenwood. Not a bad little town.

Hey Patrick,  There are a bunch of really nice twisty roads in the lakes area, northwest of the Fort, between US30 & US33.  Watch out for dirt on the corners though, Indiana is terrible about that.

Find Washington Center road, take it west out of town, then zig-zag your way in the northwest direction.  Although US33 itself looks good on paper, it's ALWAYS clogged with traffic.  SR8 east from Auburn into SR18 in Ohio is a nice ride, and the way we go to Mid Ohio.  SR5 north of South Whitley is a great ride, all the way to Ligonier.

Basically, find water.

When you think you're going to head up this way, shoot me a PM........... I live here. ;D

Hi Patrick. Yes, listen to sTD. He knows some excellent roads in the syracuse area. He's also advised the best time to ride them is during the week when not so many "lakers" are around.

And BTW, welcome

its usually a good place to ride until the guy on the Aprilia shows up around syracuse....  that dude is a total dick head...... he's always trying to get me to do wheelies and get a knee down around the corners.....

Jesper Kehlet here, live in Carmel, IN.

Currently no bike, but seriously looking to get one -- haven't been riding since before I got kids (and guess what, the oldest is 8 now), so it's about time to pick up again, don't you think?

Was seriously looking at a Kawa Ninja, but then I started eyeballing the Superbike, and with the 2008 intro of the 848 I think I am in love...   :P

What great feedback on Indy roads.  Thanks.

How about a good dealer?  I use Motohio at the moment (east side of Columbus) and I think they're great but that will be a haul to get my bike serviced.  Should I migrate to the Indianapolis dealer or is there something a bit closer?  I didn't see a lot on ducati.com.

How was midohio this year?  That's where I fell in love with my gt1000 but alas with moving and what not, I couldn't make it this year.

Does anyone have an opinion on the Hypermotard.  I think that might be one of the coolest bikes out there but I can't see shelling out 10 large just to have an enduro (of sorts).

Thanks again for all of the feedback.

Last weekend was Vintage Days at Mid-Ohio, this week is the AMA Races, (so you still have time to plan) and I'm leaving for it bright and early tomarrow morn.

Yeah, only wankers like sTD  ride enduros. J/K. Seriously though, the H-tard is a badass looking Machine. I test rode one last year, but not a long enough ride. So I wasnt able to put it through it's paces (Yeah right, Like I could anyway) [laughing]

Post by: thodeboss on July 31, 2008, 06:41:35 AM
I rode a htard with the termi race exhaust setup while my s2r was getting its 600 mile service. I liked it ,the stance was fun and it just felt like you could zip in and out of traffic and damn near thread a needle ( the handling was awesome) That being said it couldnt be my only bike , because of the rider position the wind plays with you big time and it is not the most comfortable position in the world. I see why they are marketing the bike to larger city dwellers, over all I give it a 7 out of 10.  :L

Finally got signed up a year after talking to sTD about the club, lol.  Actually sold my SS last summer soon after talking to him and recently picked up a Monster.  I just had my bike in for some new rubber and took a 4 hour test ride on the HM.  I had a short ride on the debut weekend but this ride was a lot better.  I have a dirtbike background so I loved the feel of the bike and wheelies are effortless!  The seat was very skinny and after riding it I was glad to get back on the Monster.  Can't complain about anything but the seat really.  I couldn't get one because I doubt I'd keep my license long with the hooligan feel of it.

You're right, it's the one from Indy Ducati, and yes, oni has a good eye...  I've busted my ass on a few curbs in the winter, and I'm always trying to forget them ASAP...   ;D

I'd love to come out to Noblesville, but Saturday and Sunday I'm booked -- we're celebrating my youngest and oldest kids (2 & 8) birthdays with friends, and guess who's turning 39 on Sunday...  The 900 is sorta birthday present from me to me  :L

Hey, Grifo, just curious...  Your tag, "Come Folgore dal cielo, Come Nembo di tempesta." sounds familiar.  Wasn't Folgore the chute team during WWII?

So my rusty italian says it's "Lightning come with the clouds, Clouds come with the storm" or something close to that, or?

Yep FOLGORE is the glorious Italian paratrooper brigade that kicked some major ass in North Africa during WWII

I am immensely curious by nature, and being Danish and a lover of history and military (although some people find Danish and military contradictive), I am really curious:  Are you Italian or what?  Why would somebody be in the Folgore, have the motto "Fly Always, Dominate Everywhere, Defeat Everyone", but live close to South Bend.  My guess is you grew up in Italy, and somehow study @ Notre Dame with a dual citizenship, but hey, I could be sorely mistaken...  :-)

I look forward to meeting you!

That second motto was from my training company. You are correct on my dual citizenship, I was born in South Bend but my parents took me in Italy when I was 3 years old.  I don't study at Notre Dame but sometimes I work for them...

Hello everyone.  My name is Jeanne Thode, Daren's wife.  I am new to the motorcycle world, and am in the process of learning to ride.  Some of you may know that I have purchased my first motorcycle, a 2009 Ducati Monster 696.  I am so very excited to get my new baby!  Unfortunately, I have already had my first wipeout; on my son's moped!  :'( Baby steps (Thanks, Mario).  Just got back from watching the experienced riders at Gingerman, and I'm ready to learn!  I look forward to meeting all of the "Hoolies" on the road, and maybe I'll make it to Moser's one Thursday.  Hopefully, I'll see all the Indy Hoolies this weekend when I pick up my new baby! [thumbsup]
P.S.  Hopefully I can keep my husband, his wrenches, welder etc. away from new bike!  Say a prayer!

Howboucha here.  or in real life Brendan Kearns of beautiful Clay City, IN (Between Terre Haute and Bloomington) and proud to say the only owner of a 2008 Hypermotard S in Clay City.  Picked it up in June from the shop in Indy.  Not sure really why I bought it but I am glad I did.  Incredible machine. 

I have owned probably 50 motorcycles, and this is the first duck I have owned.  My "primary" motorcycle is a Suzuki DL650 (Wee-Strom) which I picked up after trading in the DL1000.  I own a pretty large V-Strom forum, stromtrooper.com and I can appreciate the hard work and effort that has gone into this site. 

My good friend ducatisarge turned me onto the hoosier hooligans some time ago.  I have met a few of you at the Upland during one of Matt's get togethers. 

I am looking forward to meeting you in person, and participating in your events.

Peace,
B.K.

Dunno. I was 1/2 spirited at the time anyhow but the guys are true at heart and seems to have disbanded a bit. Looks like DRILL is "alive" but I met the local guys here in Cali and they're cool. Much superbikes and less monsters but still killer desert roads. I still have my S4 but looking for a stable mate.  900SS, Honda XR 600R, some SM, I dunno! Mario, I see you got a new bike! Are you tracking her yet?

Greetings to all, from now on I will be 'ducsoup' to all the Hooligans.

I was pleased to learn that there is a Ducati club in Indiana- I had no idea that Hoosierhooligans existed until the MotoGP last weekend. I expect the club will grow dramatically as a result of the presence at Ducati Island.

I bought a 907ie new and still ride it today. I have found it to be a trusty steed over the years and still think that it is one of the most comfortable and versitale Ducatis. It may not be a 'superbike' but mine was the only one I saw at Indy last weekend!

Welcome, ducsoup.... I have a friend who can buy anything he wants.  A few years ago he got into bikes in a big way; at one time I think he had 20+.  Since then, he's sold every one of them, except the Paso & a mint original 87 GSXR.  The Paso is his rider, and the Zook sits in his living room.

After many years of riding Honda's I decided to step it up a notch with a Duc.  Found this at a great price so I couldn't pass it up.  Wanted to post up and say hello from Louisville, KY., just across the creek from Indiana.  Pretty much stock except for Termi slip-ons, open clutch cover, MPL pressure plate and an after market slave cylinder.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: sTD on September 30, 2008, 04:09:37 AM
Well, I sold the bike to a (now) friend, so unless'n y'all drove up to Wisconsin and stole it.... that ain't it. ;D

There was a recall on some of the rear wheel spindles, call your dealer with a VIN to find out.  There was also an in-tank fuel line fix/recall, which was basically replacing a $2 piece of hose.  I've heard good things about Commonwealth in your area.

The original voltage regulators don't last long, but odds are yours has been replaced.

The early 916s were not affected by flaky rocker arms; make sure the valves get/got set to the latest "looser" tolerances, and you'll be fine.

Make sure the drive pins on the rear hub engage the holes in the wheel, and torque to around 200 ft/lbs.  You'll tear up both if they aren't.

Ride it like you stole it... they love to rev.

Howdy all.  Just moved from New Jersey to Kalamazoo and the fellas at Life Cycle pointed me this way.  Was fairly active in the NY,NJ,CT,PA DESMO group and am looking forward to hangin' out with ya'll.  I might even buy a round at Bell's if there's a group of ya in Kzoo that want to hang out [thumbsup]. 

Let's see, semi-vital data...  i'm 37, been riding 8 years or so. 

current quiver:
1991 Duc 907ie
1992 BMW K75s
1971 Moto Guzzi Ambassador
2006 Triumph 675

so, i like the slightly esoteric, wierd, and european (people, bikes, etc...)

This was my first year racing (the 675 is my race bike) and am psyched to race next year with so many more local tracks around.  I'm sure there are a few other racers on board? 

Anyways, HELLO!

Yeah, there are a few of us that like to spend an obscene amount of money on tires every now and then ::) ::) ::)

Myself, Matt (carrmoto), and Anthony (desmoworks) have all done some racing, and Mike (crazyducdude) is planning on joining our broke-asses this year.  Lots of folks here have done the track day thing, including MissusTD.

Hi, my name's Adam and as you may be able to tell from my username I'm from the other side of the pond.  Live in Westfield not far from the dealership in Noblesville.  I have a couple of Triumphs at the moment - Sprint ST and Rocket (both frozen in the garage at the moment) but after seeing the pictures of the new Streetfighter it looks like I might have to finally make the plunge.  I've been dreaming ever since watching Carl Fogarty on his 916.  Just need to make the tough decision on which Triumph gets sacrificed.

Look forward to meeting some of you in the future.

As of last night I am now the proud owner of a 2005 Ducati S2R 800.  It is red with a white stripe, white rims, and it has the full Termi exhaust system.  (Pictures still to come.)  It looks unbelievably beautiful.  I am a little concerned since it has 11,000 miles on it.  Matt at Indy Ducati has done all of the services on it, to include the 12,000 mile service on it this week.  I had taken a 3 year sabatical from riding due to having kids, but I caught a bad case of the Ducati Flu when I went to the GP qualifications in Indy.  (Man, I never should have gone.)  Nevertheless, it feels good to be back in the game.

You mean "football" where you use your foot to move the ball?
You mean the most popular sport on the planet?
You mean the sport where you don't get at least a 25-second rest break between every 3-second play? 
Not to mention 2 rest breaks 2 minutes before the end of each half?
You get one point for scoring, not 6 ::)
You actually have to be in shape to play?

sTD I completely agree with your description of football.  I do however have an explanation for all of the breaks.

Cheerleaders! :L


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: crazyducdude on January 22, 2009, 11:31:20 AM
American Football only needs cheerleaders b/c it is so damn boring, and lets remember the breaks created the cheerleaders and not the other way around...

If there was enough action in football we wouldn't need cheerleaders, i.e. Soccer (european Football) = constant action!!!

You wanna watch chick, might i recommend Women's Soccer... Very scrumptious.. i.e the women's world cup a few years ago when the one chick from the US team took her shirt off [thumbsup] [thumbsup] [thumbsup] [thumbsup] >:) >:) >:)

I coach youth soccer, played youth and even played for the USMC team (west coast)  still play indoor, but I think the draw to AmericanFootball is the connection to the "battlefield" we get from football. Taking "assets" and accomplishing a mission (moving the ball down the field). I love pro soccer but I just cant get excited about US pro soccer yet, and euro anything seems kinda fruity(beckham). Just sayin!!!! :L

I like both kinds, but I never heard soccer players having two a day practices.

I beg to differ, when i was in college we had to be at the track at 5:30am for our 2 mile run in 12mins.  then at 6-8am we had practice then at 4-6am we had another practice, everyday except for game days throught the entire seaseon.

The 12min 2mile run was only for a week/ or until you actually did the 2miles in 12min. took me 2 days, pretty damn good seeing how i was the 2 biggest guy on the team at 215lbs, and there were guys that never made it.. 

lets see some football players do that..

In Toasters defense though, lets see some soccer players bench press a mini cooper

 In college i actually lifted with the football team and out lifted them, the football coach came in one day and saw me and asked why i wasn't playing for him and I straight up told him that i wanted to play football but when he met with me he asked what position i played in high school, and I said that i played soccer in high school he pretty much dismissed me at that instant..   


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: MotoPsycho on January 23, 2009, 11:25:49 AM
We had an advanced P.E. class when I was in highschool. The gym teacher was also the football coach so it gave all the football players a chance to lift during school. We'd run a few minutes and then go to the weight room. Coach asked me why I never played football if I was as strong as all his buys were. I told him I'm NOT a jock and they were all DICKS. He said he didn't agree with me but admired my spirit. :L

Hello from Goshen. Was introduced to your organization by the staff at Jordan Powersports. Looking for any info on 125 racing or track days at any local tracks. Heard there maybe something at Gingerman.

Hello from Goshen. Was introduced to your organization by the staff at Jordan Powersports. Looking for any info on 125 racing or track days at any local tracks. Heard there maybe something at Gingerman.

Welcome Carl/Michelle (that's TWO people right, not a split personality?) ;D

I work here in Goshen, and live just south in Syracuse.

Gingerman in South Haven, MI hosts an "open" track session on Wed evenings in the summer.  The bikes have to alternate sessions with the cars, and all the bikes are on track at once.  Not the best environment to learn if you're new.  But it's cheap & close.  AHRMA, CCS & WERA race there.  www.gingermanraceway.com

Grattan in Grand Rapids, MI is probably one of the most challenging tracks in the country, and hosts dozen of track days each year.  Worth the trip.  Both CCS & WERA race there.  www.grattanraceway.com

Putnam Park is west of Indy, and is a fast, albeit simple track.  They host dozens of track days, but only host CCS racing.  Them & WERA don't get along.  www.putnampark.com

I don't know if the 125 challenge series visits any of the tracks.

PM me and we'll meet up for a beer at Constant Spring.

new guy here,

I have been comming to this forum for a while but haven,t registered till today. I live in Windsor Ont . Just over the river from Detroit.
This is my second season with the duck and I love it! So far I have put on an Arrow full system, open clutch cover from mad duc with a red balancer thingy. I changed the mirrors out to bar end, blacked out the wind screen ,took off the black plastic emmisions stuff on the side.
Oh yeah I also made a new bracket for the plate to tuck it in a little.All pretty standard stuff but the coolness factor went way up!
 I rode it out to Gingerman last year to check out the festival and had a great time, classy bunch of people. So nice to be away from all the attitude of H-D events.

A description of a good day for a redneck who has a taste for Ducati Hypermotard style-

After breakfast at the Denny’s in Lebanon go south on SR39, (going south on SR39 is important because of the descending elevation in that direction).  From Denny’s grand slam to Danville, SR39 is a series of slow curves that allows for digestion.  South of Danville, SR39 becomes Deal’s Gap lite, but just for a few minutes as crossing US40 SR39 delivers up another lazy series of curves.  Then the fun begins south of Monrovia, (now you are glad to be going downhill as SR39 gets tight and a rider needs every advantage).  You hit SR67 taking it south, stay with SR39 and cut across Martinsville to SR37 taking it south a couple of clicks to Turkey Track Rd.  But instead of turning onto Turkey Track you take Old SR37 all the way to Bloomington.  Stop there and get gas as the Hypermotard engineers decided that two gallons of fuel is enough fun all at once.  After the fill up you want to take SR46 all the way to Nashville and continue north on SR135 to SR45 which will take you back to Bloomington and then back track to SR67 which will take you to Gray’s Cafeteria after which it really doesn’t matter where you go.

   That is a great route. I took some of the guys on part of that route after Saturday practice laps at last years moto GP.
Another good way to run that route is when you get to matinsville go north to SR44 take that to 135 south to SR45 into B-town and head back to M-ville on old SR37. This gets rid of the whole 46 section which can get real slow if you get behind some sunday drivers. There are few (legal) passing spot in that road and most times you need to gas it around 7-8 cars and a horse trailer.

Welcome to the club. I will look for your hyper out there on my old standby route.

Agaduc996,

SR46 can be a bit slow at times, one reason to go early.  I first started going that way because of a different kind of “duc”.  The little known Stillwater Marsh is located just outside of Bloomington on SR46 and now instead of using a shotgun on them I am using a Canon.  Also great fun can be had at buzzing Yellow Wood.  They also have a hillclimb, I think it is called the nashvillenitro.  While I do have an xr650l- my that hill is big.

Achoo-had a non Ducati moment today.  Went to Beemer land in ananapolis town.  Forgot to put in my action tooth while on 16th street, (you know how forgetful us redneck hillbillies can be).  But seriously, the HP2 sport hand job for 25 smackers producing 130 hp and tit-tanium heads surely would put my Hypermotard, (the bike that makes my hyaKaboose look big) to shame.

Redneck poker run-

A few sunbeams and a faint crackle of a rooster wakes the would be Ducati guy.  Rolling out of bed the scent from the cappuccino maker tells him that the steamed milk has automatically reached a temperature of 132.3 degrees Fahrenheit.  Taking a sip through the foam and thinking to one’s self-not baa.  Opening the closet and taking the one riding jacket with the back spackle that looks least like bacne the rider turns to the sound of mama’s warning to watch out for the bacon cruisers and the glimpse of a blue puff of smoke from her cigarette butt out of the corner of the rider's left eye. 

The barn door opens to a potpourri of sights, sounds and smells that only a country boy understands.  And then the mechanical Desmo beast roars to a thunder clap.

Hi All,

New to the forum. I have a 2006 PS1000LE. I am in Fort Wayne, IN. Bought it used in January in Kansas City Mo. Borrowed a truck and drove down to pick it up. I now need some service as it is stalling. Called Indy Ducati yesterday and am renting a truck to get it down there Friday June 12th. I talked to Bill and Jason on the phone yesterday to setup appointment. Going to to have make another trip down once fixed (a little over 2 hour drive) I met Matt at Indy Ducati a few months ago. VERY NICE GUY. Hopefully all goes well with my service experience.

Long time reader, first time poster.....

After standing at the start/finish line at Mid-Ohio in 2005 and REALLY hearing a Ducati for the 1st time (Jeeeebus!!!! I didn't know that anything could sound like THAT.... :o) , it was just a matter of time until I rearranged my garage to fit in a Ducati.  After briefly considering an 848 this spring, I picked up a Ural so I could share riding with my 6 year old.  Then, a few weeks later, I stumbled across a 2001 Monster 900S i.e. with ~1600 miles, and the garage shuffle began.  Finally.  After I spent an hour or so bleeding hydraulics, changing fluids, etc., the Monster shifts and stops great, and the sound from the CF Remus cans is sublime....rather loud, but still sublime.

In any case, the vitals if you want to skip the above:
South Bend
2001 M900S i.e.

Cheers, Michael.

Thanks for the welcome.  With a nearly divine confluence of events, while out seeking big mud puddle splashes on my Ural, I stumbled upon the Hooligans in New Carlisle two days before finding this M900S.  I plan to ride out this PM for the first time on the Monster, but I felt quite welcomed the past two weeks, despite riding my Ural and Kawa 650R (in the rain I might add....no Ducs in sight, just Duc owners ;)).

I live very near downtown South Bend, so if anyone is making a stop at Fiddler's Hearth or whatnot, I'm often nearby.  Oh, and not to be too self-congratulatory, but I was quite pleased to find such an excellent condition low mileage Ducati to silence the "Buy a Ducati...you know you will eventually anyway...do it now...." internal monologue.  Now if I could only get my neighbor's dog Sam to stop telling me to loft the front wheel....

Cheers! [thumbsup]

Hello to all, my name is Robbie Rea from South Bend.  I currently do not own a bike yet but am saving up for one.  I am friends with sTD and his passion for the Ducati brand had me doing research on them for a few years now.  I find the dedication, passion, and pride associated with owning a Ducati is wonderful and I can't wait till I can buy my first one.

I hope to  join you in a ride as soon as my finances allow me to.

I am a Union Carpenter, married to my wife Cathy, with two boys (Aiden 7, & Jacen 5), and am currently employed by Solid Platforms building scaffolding at the BP refinery in Whiting, IN.  My other hobbies are playing offroad (how I met sTD), being involved in my local Union and community, spending time with my friends and family, and am involved in my local Cub Scout pack.

New intro for new bike. 2008 Moto Guzzi Norge bought 6/4/09 and yes it now has more miles on it than the Monster! Kevin & Beth, South Bend, Indiana. The bike now has over 1750 thanks to several trips into Grand Haven, Holland, Grand Rapids, South Haven and Michigan locations. I love the temps there and the roads are a bit more twisty along Lake Michigan. Anytime any of you want to ride with a two up bike to Michigan let me know.

Hi, I'm Jennie from Brownsburg, IN.  Just joined up today, I've had my bike for about a month now. 
She is a 2002 Ducati Monster, 900 cc, full Remus CF exhaust, some sprocket mods, and very clean.  I am quite happy so far. 
I'd like to give a shout-out to the crew at Indy Ducati, as they have been very helpful, even answering questions after hours, and Matt gave me a jump after I left the parking light on while I was at work.  Fortunately I work just around the corner from the shop.  That was a little  embarrassing   ::)

Hi everyone

My name is Dave and i live in Lafayette Indiana but grew up in the Ft. Wayne area.  Although I don't currently own a Ducati it is on the top of the to do list.  I just recently got married (July 25) and now that that is done the wife has said that I can start looking for the Ducati.  I currently ride a Suzuki SV650 and a I am huge V twin sportbike fan.

Welcome everybody.  Edwin Jennie I was the wet guy on the Road King a couple of weeks ago u rode ur Monster in to Indy during the rain.  Welcome Dave looks like the South will rise again.  The numbers are growing there.

Hey Dave. I've been working on and off in Lafayette. I'll most likely be back in a couple of weeks. I'll look ya up and go out for a brewski.

If you like your SV then you'll love a duc. I had a first generation SV a few years ago as a dedicated track bike, but there was a lot of work done to the suspension (read $$$) to make it as forgiving as it was. Not an incredibly powerful machine, still I loved that bike and miss the hell of her.......

screaminss

That would be cool.  Shoot me an email whenever your in town.  I am always up for a beer.  I love the SV and can not decide if I want to keep it when I get a duc or sell it.  Understand the money in a SV for track. Had a buddy back home that raced a 1st gen in WERA for years.

Mark here, from Plymouth, IN.  Don't have a duc yet, but am seriously looking at a new Monster 1100 (beautiful silver and red).  Went to the Ducati fest at Gingerman on Sat 8/8 and fell more in love with these machines (umbrella girls weren't too bad either).  Can't wait to go riding!!!!

My name is Michael Hutcheson - Heritage Lake, Coatesville, IN - I just purchased a '98 Ducati ST2 which is all factory except for a Hawk Oiler and Arrow Exhaust and has 30k miles on it. Just started riding at the beginning on Spring and I'm looking forward to having something that tours well. I'll be sure to stop by the tent next friday at the motogp. Not sure if I'm riding in yet or not. Glad to be on board and welcome any advice as I'm fairly new to the game. Thanks.

Welcome :L

One bit of advice..... you didn't mention if you knew when the last maintenance on that bike was performed.  The timing belts are due for replacement every 12,000 miles or 2 years on that model - you could be overdue or have it coming up in a bit and they are important since there is interference between pistons and free spinning valves

I appreciate the heads up - the previous owner just changed the belts 1000 miles ago. I will be due for an oil change in the next 500 miles - previous owner was running Mobil 1 full synthetic... I'm planning on riding until it hits 35 degrees out so should I be running 15w-40?

Welcom Mike. Be sure to stop by the Hoo-Hoo tent, introduce yourself, and say hello. We are a pretty friendly group with a passion for Ducati's and having a good time, so I think you found the right club.


  The timing belts are due for replacement every 12,000 miles or 2 years on that model
Belts are due @ 6000 mi. as all pre 07 bikes are. I would call Indy Ducati, and see what they recommend for oil for cold weather use.

I have a suggestion and not sure where to post it, this is probably the best thread. I've seen a few blogs on the internet where the group will use Google Maps to put pins where the members live. I have a hard time trying to scan thru 61 pages of "introduce yourself" to find someone close by to ride with. Can someone put one of those maps on this site so I can find some local riders?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?

Nice idea.... I actually did that a long time ago but it didn't get much use at the time....



here's the link to that page   http://www.hoosierhooligans.org/forum/index.php?page=11

maybe we should get it started back up?

Probably Frappr... most Google mapping / imaging apps aren't too shabby, but for some reason Frappr kinda blows.

Anyone tried communitywalk?  It lets you 'pin' destinations, upload pics, map routes between, etc...

Greetings from the Big Island of Hawaii!!

Okay..so Grubby said I should introduce myself even though I don't own a bike and I'm not an official Hooligan (any problems, blame him, I do  [laughing]).

Anywho, I'm Kat.  I live on the island of Hawaii in the state of Hawaii.  I'm currently a high school English teacher (9th/11th grade) and part time Nail Technician (girly stuff).  I've been around bikes my whole life.  I know most of y'all are Ducati riders...but being that I don't have one of my own yet, thought I'd share what little connection I do have with bikes. 

My dad has been affiliated with a couple of different bike clubs here on the Big Island.  He is currently the Vice President of Hawaiian Knights M/C. It's a family oriented club that he and my uncle created about eight years ago.  They participate in various non-profit events (Toys for Tots, charity poker runs, etc.) and offer security services for community events.  My dad got his first Harley, an '87 Evolution when I was ten, which he sold just this past year. He later went on to pick up a '58 Panhead and then built a custom something or other with a really fat rear tire.  Last year he picked up a Fat Boy and that's what he rides most of the time now. 

...Anyway, enough about him :P. 

I'm here as an extension of the infamous Grubby.  He talks about y'all so much and shares stories from the forum with me all the time.  I hear such great things that I wanted to be a part of something that truly makes him happy.  He loves being a member of this awesome club and values your amazing friendship.  (Shhh, don't tell him I spilled that mushy stuff ;D) 

Hopefully someday I'll own a Ducati.  Until then, I will remain a loyal Ducati Groupie and will always be beside my Partner in Crime.  Ride fast, live free.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?

Thanks, yeah, I need to get over there.

Awesome! Will this be your first Duc? Welcome Justin. Have fun, and keep an eye open for upcoming events in 2010. There are a few here that ride out to Quaker steak and Lube on Wednesday nights for their bike night during the summer. feel free to post up if you would like to organize a ride, or just meet up for some shenanigans  :L


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Stack_Tester on December 31, 2009, 07:01:33 PM
Among other things... I am always up for some shenanigans.
I am really glad to hear that there are others nearby.
I was hoping that the roads would be slightly less salty and icy. I actually managed to ride last year on New Years, but since the bike is brand new, and the tires are still a little slick, I will not make it out this year.
This is actually my first Duc. I have owned 3 bikes in the last 3 years, but I think that this one may keep me occupied for a little longer than the last three. When I heard that bike run in person today it was love at first start. Looking forward to some better riding weather, and meeting up with some of you (Quaker Steak or otherwise) in the near future.

Happy New Year!

Welcome Beau.  Of course when I get ready to move away someone else from West Lafayette joins.  I would say we should meet up and ride but I took my bike to my grandfathers house to store until I move to Evansville in a week.  If you are going to be around Lafayette the end of May quite a few of us will be in town to ride and have a good time.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: FlyingDuc on April 27, 2010, 04:30:45 PM
Hehe...that's how it always works right. I imagine I'll be here most of May. Might make a trip or two down to Indy for 500 qualifying/carb day events. I've been reading up on the Knickerbocker Run in the events forum and I may have to skip pole day to meet up with all of the people coming into town for it. Sounds like a good time. Plus, this is my first Ducati and I'm eager to discuss items with people that have more experience with them.  It's a different animal than what I'm use to for sure

Beau you should definitely try to meet up with us for the Knickerbocker Run.  It will be a good time for sure.  If you want to meet up with someone else local try to pm cmkiel.  Chad is the only other member I know of in West Lafayette.  He might be hard to get ahold of until after finals but he has a 08 1098s and can probably answer some of your questions.

What a great site!  I'm Jerry.  My wife (Deb) and I live in Westfield.  I bought my first Duc in July of 09, a M1100S.  I absolutely love everything about the bike.  I haven't done any mods yet but bought the showroom custom Ducati Indy had on the floor (the one with the Brickyard custom paint).  I opted for the OEM tank cover and cowl (red) because I didn't want to pay the price for the custom paint.

My wife and I love to ride.  She has a 1976 KH100 (her dad bought new for her) and an 06 1200 Custom Sporster.  I ride the Monster and occasionally ride an 08 FLHT.  I will post some pics when I get some good ones to post.  We have been riding since we were kids.  I grew up on dirt bikes like Elsinores and such.  Most of the bikes I have owned have been Harley, some of them when AMF owned 'em.  We don't get much of a chance to do any touring but love to do day rides.

We look forward to meeting new friends and getting together for some rides.

Thanks for keeping this site and all the work that goes into maintaining it.

Welcome Jerry!  It's good to see that bike in someones hands. Do you know all the places it's been on display?  It's a bit of a piece of local Duc history :L


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: hedgehog132 on June 07, 2010, 01:53:39 AM
Yes, I did get the Hoosier Hooligan piece that was on the bike.  And no, I have no idea where the bike was on display.  Bill didn't tell me much about that part of the bike.  I did find out that Bill's family, or his wife's, is from the same town I grew up in, Ottumwa, Iowa.  I know it's only a couple of states away but when I meet someone who even knows of Ottumwa I figure it's good karma.  Tom Arnold and Radar O'Reilly are the towns only claim to fame.  Radar is only a character but I did go to school with and run around with Tom Arnold.  Enough about that.

I am a hugh fan of MotoGP and have been to both 08 and 09 races at Indy.  I have tickets for the 2010 race and would love to experience it with a bunch of local riders.  Do the Hooligans do anything special for the race?  I would really like to meet and ride with some of the members.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: hedgehog132 on June 07, 2010, 02:01:03 AM
p.s. I love everything about my Monster.  So much so that I am thinking of getting rid of my FLHT.  After riding the Duc, which I do all the time, getting on the Harley is like trying to handle a rodeo bull.  It's a great bike for the open road and even some town riding, but it's so damn heavy.  That's all I have to say about that.

Welcome Jerry.  Last year quite a few members meet at the Revolver store at the Noblesville mall the weekend before the race.  Bill and Matt from Indy Ducati where there with a few bikes, as well as an IMS van with a few bikes.  Even a few Ferrari made it out too. After hanging out at the store about 12 of us rode around Hamilton county for a bit before going to the courthouse square in Noblesville.

Here is the link to the Revolver store thread.  Bottom of page 3 has pics.

Do I need to contact anyone in particular about getting my name on the list of helpers for the booth?  I also need to get a shirt or two for the weekend.  Where do I get 'em?

Who has the scoop on that bike, just to give him the full background?

As I recall, it was made as a dealer built entry in a Monster customization contest.  There was later a club built contest and one of our members bikes did very well.  You'll probably fine Jeanie's "Stella Rosa" Monster around and could sorta consider her the sister to your Indy built bike.

Your bike, which probably deserves a name, was display at Moto GP last year and I hear it was on display in the Indy airport for a while.  It's been taken to several local "shows" as well - wasn't it at the 1 year anniversary party for the Revolver store mentioned above? 

I know I have some pics of that bike.  We should start a thread where people can post pics they have of it or share historic details they remember about it.  I think Jerry would get a kick out of seeing how well known it really is.

You'll have to ask Matt Carr (Bill's son and the service manager/best Duc mechanic around) about that bikes trick brake/clutch reservoirs.  There's some pics where they were hidden (ie, they were removed and the lines plugged to make the front end look extra clean)

My name is Shawn C. from Bloomington, Indiana.  I'm new to all the groups and forums so please excuse my ignorance.  I've been riding steet bikes for 20yrs and have just now purchased a ducati, which I've always wanted.  I'm riding a 2001 996 monoposto.  Obviously bought it used, but it was meticulously taken care of and only had 3800mi so I was pretty happy about the purchase.  I joined the club because a I want to ride with others that have a true passion for motorcylces and as I've found out about owning a ducati, a passion for working on them as well.  I plan on going to the race tommorrow and would like to now where I could meet up with some local riders that are club members.  Please respond with any helpfull information about this website and it's bennefits, also what's the schedule for tommorrows MotoGP race.

Wecome, Shaun!

All the MotoGP info is in the "Events & Rides" forum.  There's a whole bunch of Ducati stuff in the infield of the track, just head there.  I dunno if anyone's riding up from B-town, but I'd bet you could link with people that were riding back down after the race if you visit the tents.

If you catch this message before tonight, lots of people will be out in downtown Indy (massive bike night event w. streets blocked off), at the Indy Mile at the State Fairgrounds, and afterwards drinking responsibly at Landshark's in Broad Ripple.

Post by: Ryan Jung on August 30, 2010, 11:02:58 AM
Ryan,
Avon, IN

  My first bike was a 01 Monster 900 S4 Dark and have loved Ducatis' ever since.  After several months of 45min commutes and early morning high speed runabouts in the Catskills with Hayabusa and Gixer craizies the wind and lack of gusto proved too much.  The next was a 998 Dark ordered straight from Italy (professional connection with Texas-Pacific), I have always wondered what happened to this bike as it was totalled in 2003 but was not in too bad of shape and at the time was the only 998 Dark ever factory built to my knowledge?  I had not ridden since until about 2 weeks ago and found a used 2010 NCR (m16 like) custom with a DD16RR motor.

  I actually have a question to those who may know more about Ducati bikes,  The bike does not have a coolant system i.e. radiator.  I did notice the temp got abit hot riding once over 45 mins and I would like to be able to ride it for longer trips.  Here lies the problem; the radiators normally used on Desmosedicis' are quite large an obtrusive and would destroy the aethetics of the bike.  The plumbing connections are all there after inspection of the normal RR this weekend.  I have some experience with extreme import racing and know there are some very small thin,ultra light radiators on the market.  Does anyone know the actual cooling specifications/needs required by this motor and if I could use a non Ducati or even motorcycle at that to maintain the clean look of the bike?  I am thinking something 18"x6" at the largest would work best as brackets to hold it would be the least of my concerns!

Hello to all of you. This is my first post and I have not yet bought a Ducati, though that will be remedied quite soon. I am trying to decide which model and which submodel to buy. I attended the Moto GP race on Sunday and I really fell for the Monster. I haven't ridden a motorcycle for quite some time and I want to get back into it. Any recommendations as to which years are best and which models are best would be appreciated.

Post by: BryanS on September 01, 2010, 03:34:54 AM
I started off on a 2003 Monster 620 and quickly swapped it out for a 2004 Monster 1000S.  For me the big draw was the dry clutch and the engine (which ran at lower rpms at highway speed so was less buzzy). 

Personally, if I was shopping for a bike now, I'd look for exactly what I have.  I know some of the newer S2R, S4R type Monsters with the old style shaped tank have been having problems with the plastic tank expanding over time and not sitting properly on the frame.... I don't know if it's a really wide spread problem but personally know a few people that have had theirs replaced because it was so deformed.

Style wise, I prefer the last generation Monster such as mine as compared to the updated style you see on the showroom floor now, plus getting a used bike is always a better deal.

Engine size, I like the 1000DS or 900 motors.  The 620 was just a bit underpowered for highway riding (at least compared to the 1000 - the 620 is fine but even at WOT it wasn't ever scary fast)  I prefer the clean simple look of the air cooled motors as well but people with the watercooled superbike motors that you see in the S4, S4R, etc love the power they make.  Maintanance costs are higher on the watercooled, 4 valve motors though....

Just some thoughts.  I know we occassionally have members here selling used bikes and Ducati Indy has been great to all of us, so I would point you in their direction if you are looking to buy from a dealer.  They often have a few used bikes around as well.....

Hi!

   After owning (and riding) a succession of sportbikes (Kawasaki Ninja 250 and a Honda CBR600F4i), I purchased a new 2010 Ducati 848 last weekend.   After riding it, I think I will keep it around for a while.  ;D

   Indianapolis here.

Thanks,

Just bought a 2009 Monster 696 this evening.  My first Ducati.  Also have an 09 Harley Iron in the garage.  Living in Monticello, just north of Lafayette.  Picking up the new Monster tomorrow.  Any tips for the initial 90 mile ride home?  Breaking in the new L-Twin? 


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: BryanS on November 19, 2010, 07:57:46 PM
As I recall, the break in recommendation was to vary the RPMs rather than just get on the highway and hold it at a set RPM for the entire break in period.  Also, seems like there was a max suggested RPM.  It's been long enough that I can't recall exactly and I was breaking in a 2004 so Ducati may have revised their recommendations since then.

Where'd ya buy the bike?  I'd bet the sales or service people could tell ya the current recommendations.

Congrats on the new bike and be sure to post up some pics when you get a chance :L

nice combo... I can see that you don't leave stuff stock.... what's the first thing you're thinking of doing on the Monster?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: dgm on November 20, 2010, 07:54:56 PM
well, I already removed all reflectors ;)  does that count?  I actually already have the termi carbon pipes, ecu and air cleaner, but thought I'd wait till spring and I had 600mi on her to have them installed.  I definitely want to do the tail section delete, something with the mirrors, and I'd like to powder coat a few  items.  Nate at Ducati Indy recommended I do the 14T front sprocket when I do the 600mi service and the exhaust, which I thought sounded like a good idea. 

Beyond that... who knows.  I'll probably hold on anything serious after those initial mods and spend my money on leathers and gear to start participating in a few track days. 

Anything you'd suggest that I haven't thought of yet with the Duc?   This is my first Ducati by the way.  Really enjoying everything about the experience so far. 


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: BryanS on November 20, 2010, 08:39:43 PM
Sounds like a good list to me :L

The tail chop is  a great mod.  Did it on my 2004 Monster and it looks so much better without the big plastic tail.  As I recall, one of our members that goes by sTD is a fabricator and made up a nice kit for doing this... has brackets for mounting the lights, etc.  I believe I've seen it installed on the bike we entered in the Monster Challenge this year, which I've added to the post below.  Hopefully he'll chime in with more info on the kit.  I'm not sure if he went into production with it or if this was a one off part.  I'm sure he could mass produce them if he were motivated.

(http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs158.snc1/5889_146790855209_600300209_3642438_4215684_n.jpg)

You'll love the exhaust.  Ducs just don't sound right with the stock exhaust.  The 14T front sprocket is a very common, inexpensive mod.  Did it on my 620 Monster and loved it.  Went up 2 teeth in back on my 1000 (essentially the same result but requires a longer chain) and liked it too.  Rumor has it that Ducati runs the bikes overgeared so they can pass some sort of Euro noise emissions but that making a mod like this brings the gearing towards ideal.

Everyone seems to replace mirrors at some point.  Bar end mirrors are pretty common but the consensus has been that Ducati made ugly mirrors, moreso in the past than now.  My stock mirrors looked just like Mickey Mouses ears lol.

I put an HID headlight in my housing and really like the extra illumination, especially on back roads.  That has been one of my favorite mods..... turn signals are commonly replaced... I actually like the ones on the new Monsters.  They are a big improvement over those of years past.

You'll hear a lot of people say that spending money on some track time at a track day or a few is a good investment, and that spending money on bling is a waste in comparison.  We  have quite a few members that participate in track days and they seem to feel that it's improved their riding.  I haven't gotten out on the track yet though I suppose it's a good idea, even if it does nothing more than give me a better idea of how my bike behaves when I push it harder than I do usually, learn to handle losses of traction a bit, get more confidence in how much grip a tire really has, etc.  Your idea of investing in track worthy gear and some track time is a great idea!

One of the things that really surprised me most about owning a Duc is the closeness of the community in general.  This club basically started off when Mario (grifo on the forum) and I met online, both being Monster owners.  We picked up friends/members along the way and went on outings to some of the local AMA track events that Ducati used to race, such as the AMA SBK series at Mid-Ohio, Road America in Wisconsin, etc.  We made friends with other Duc owners all over the US and it's not uncommon for members to stop in and say hi when travelling around the US.  I think one of the more typical experiences that illustrate how close knit Ducati owners in general are, is how, at events like MotoGP in Indy, a group of us members end up sitting around with the CEO of Ducati, just shooting the shit, while he starts tagging stuff around the Ducati Island area at the track with our club stickers...... I couldn't imagine being a Kawasaki owner and having this be a normal, typical sort of experience, but it doesn't even feel unusual after owning a Duc and being a club member for years now.  Granted, it's entirely possible to buy a Duc and miss out on that experience if you never really get exposed to that community, but that is one of the best points that being a DOC club member offers.  


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: dgm on November 21, 2010, 06:06:15 AM
Well, this certainly seems like a great group so far and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better and hopefully adding something to the collective!  I am interested in the tail chop!   I've heard from a few folks that it's pretty tough to do it right yourself.  I'm no mechanic, but I'm fairly handy and I'd say I have a better tool collection than average, so I'd rather do it myself, but don't want to take a chance on doing something dumb to the new monster already!  Any opinions?  thanks.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: BryanS on November 21, 2010, 07:46:43 AM
yours is different than mine, but I can't imagine that the process is significantly different.  It's been done on 696's by other members so they could give you more of a play by play.

For my bike, I removed the seat, unbolted the lights and plastic bits from the tail, took a hack saw and chopped off the last 6" of the frame where the plastic tail bolted on, smoothed out the cut and painted the bare surface to prevent rust.  Then it was a matter of a few bolts to put the new tail assembly back on.  The hack saw part was a bit intimidating but not necessarily so.  I'd really say that it's no tougher than changing the oil.

Daren, Troy; got any more info on the tail chop for the 696?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: MotoPsycho on November 21, 2010, 09:46:08 AM
Its way more fun to hack stuff up and build your own parts. Excessive use of flat black spraypaint is a requirement also. Adds cool factor and character.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: thodeboss on November 21, 2010, 01:59:21 PM
The kit we used on Jeans bike (the pink one Bryan mentioned) was real easy to install, bought a kit from Monster Parts. It was a about a 6 pack project (I had help). STd was working on a kit and I would buy his first if it is done but the Compitition Werks one was fine. Bar ends are a great investment I would recomend the CRG "lane spitters" they have a break away function to them and much better than the original ones, one thing I did was flip the mirror bracket over (gets rid of the unused bolt hole. Have fun you got a great, fun bike there look forward to meeting up with you one of these days.  :L

P.S. Grubby gets a Christmas card from Rustoleum every year to thank him for his continued purchasing  [laughing]

Hey, nothing wrong with excessive flat black paint usage!  As you can see in my iron, there isn't much that's not black!   My wife has already said to me, "don't make this ducati look like your other one."  ...meaning, don't black it out   [thumbsup]

On a more serious note:  I've always had belt drive bikes until this Duc.  Rode to work this morning and it rained a little so I got a little paranoid about the chain.  My office is about 60mi from my house.   Any tips on chain care that I've never had to deal with in the past?  Should I do anything now before I ride home this afternoon?  Sorry for my ignorance. 


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: thodeboss on November 22, 2010, 06:10:49 AM
Nope, you are all set. I oil (spray on chain oil) about every month or so. They are real easy to adjust (once or twice a year). You can ride that thing thru water up to the frame and it will be fine. We got real wet at Moto GP two years ago and Jeannes 696  did better on the slippery road than my S2R 1k (worn tires and too much throttle ::) ). I love riding in the rain. Have fun!  :L

Post by: BryanS on November 22, 2010, 01:42:02 PM
I pretty much neglect the chain, lubricating it a few times a year and tensioning it as necessary.  Ridden through rain and snow.  It gets a touch of surface rust but doesn't seem to mind.  I think sTD uses mud to lubricate his [laughing]


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: crazyducdude on November 23, 2010, 05:02:58 AM
Actually sTD and myself have started using a new lubricant called "Dupont Teflon Multi-Use"  Its a little blue 4 fl. oz. bottle, we bought ours at ACE hardware in Syracuse for about $5-$8.  Troy had been using the stuff when we rode our bike to the trackfest at Gingerman this summer.  I was quite impressed, we had hit every dirt road between Syracuse and South Haven and his chain looked as clean as it did when we left his house in the morning, while mine "conventional method" looked like it had been placed in a mud bath...

Hey Josh, I haven't done much shopping around so I don't know the going price for that part, but I've found www.woundedduc.net to be a decent source for parts from time to time.  I looked and they happen to have the headlight for a 2001 996, which I suspect is identical.  You can take a look here http://woundedduc.net/996-2001-2.html

Wow, that's quite a jump!  I think the 1200 has roughly what, 75x the power or the Ninjer? [laughing]

Unless the new Multi really bakes your noodle, might think about the old Multi.  It set the bar for versatility, and no other bike has yet raised it, especially when $$$ are figured in.  Sweet, heavily farkled used ones are $5-9k, and Indy Duc has an almost-new 09 demo.  Hooligan-approved.

I think that's about right, which is why this hasn't got passed the "drooling" phase.  :P
Life is is funny, there is literally only one reason I don't have one, and that reason is
me. How's that for cruel irony. I have "means, motive and opportunity" but I know better.

Maturity sucks.

If they made one with, oh I don't know, say a 696, I'd already have one. This is all assuming of course
I actually liked the way it rode.

What I want want is an old guys touring bike that hasn't had all the fun stripped out of it, how is an adrenaline addict supposed to get excited about a Goldwing or whatever-glide (no offense). An aging hooligan is still a hooligan after all.

The Multi is calling me like the Greek Sirens, but I seem to remember something about those stories not ending well.   [laughing]
Anyway, about the only other bike out there that "bakes the noodle" is the Aprilia Shiver, but there are no "real" Aprilia dealers anywhere near.   >:(

For now, the Ninjette is a great motorcycle, no matter what your friends try to tell you.  ;D

Hey guys. New around here and currently dont have a bike (YET!). Found this place looking for the right Monster for me and trying to workout a deal with a current member...

Im currently in Evansville and been building Mustangs for the last ten years and was always happy building cars that keep up with bike (:) ). But at the moment Im Mustangless for the first time in 13 years and need a toy to get me through the summer till I start a new winter project so the bike shopping started.

Look forward to getting to know you guys and hopefully meet up for some summer rides!

Look forward to getting to know you guys and hopefully meet up for some summer rides!

You talking to me Oni? I would be up for a track visit, highly doubt I would make any runs, but have pretty much lived at the track for the last decade ( but was all straight line racing ) and would love to get into some twisty events once I get comfortable on the bike.

Hey all, so I'm not a Hoosier, but a Dayton, OH Neighbor!  99' 750SS, love it! Just did a valve job the other day, and shes running like a dream!

Been ordering parts and dealing with Indy Ducati recently, hands down best service and friendliest ducati dealer I've met yet.  Walked in just to check things out and the owner greeted me gave me a tour, and was really nice guy. 

Only been riding a few years now, hoping to get everything in line so I can do a track day or two later this summer.  Hope to see you all around sometime,


Don't worry, I'll mainly just lurk unless I have something really good to add!

Jason Chaplin, 33, in Indianapolis, am a Home Health Nurse, yes some days I throw my files, stethescope and BP cuff in a backpack and do my visits on the bike. Next bike will likely be a Ducati, however, this time I went with a 2009 MV Agusta Brutale 1078RR. Would post pics but am new so can't do that yet I think. List of mods is extensive. I dig the look of the Brutale Challenge bikes and the Corse bodywork so I am making mine that. The bellypan is the latest add and biggest change to the overall look but it is the MV Corse lower fairing, not one of the aftermarket ones. The Corse seat is on the way. Rizoma pegs, mirrors, grips, barends are on the way. Steering damper, led signals, sliders are on. Full Titanium Corse Exhaust is on hold and being paid on, got an amazing deal, a $3200 system for $1800. Couldn't pass it up. It was a toss up between this and the Streetfighter, If the Brutale was gone, I'd have a streetfighter right now. Will be at the MotoGP all 3 days, live 15min from the track, have 2 empty bedrooms if anyone wants to save funds on a room for the whole weekend. :)

I have a wife and 2 daughters age 5 and 4. The girls love going for rides and they look cute in their pink and purple motocross gear. Hope to get them riding pocket bikes soon. Be at the Italian Fest Sunday.

Hello all,

Gordon from Speedway. After years of wanting a monster finally picked up an 07 S2R1000 last spring w/ 407 miles on the clock. I've of lurked around here and the DMF for the last few years off and on but now since I have the bike I've decided to join the action. Would like to meet up for some of the events and I'll definitely be around the GP next month.

Take Care...

Hello, my name is Ramon Vasquez (Ray). I live in Yoder Indiana just outside of Ft. Wayne Indiana. After dreaming of owning a Ducati for years I finally have acquired one! Its a 2002 998 with carbon fiber bodywork a full Remus exhaust, EVR slipper clutch and other little minor mods. Ive been riding for 27 years now including 11 years of roadracing from 1986 to 1996. I'm no longer road racing but have done some track days in the past couple of years (none on the Duc...yet). I do some play ice racing with some buddies on crf 70s in the winter to keep the racing fix going. I also currently have a 93 cbr 900 that I put a vfr single sided swingarm, R1 tailpiece, 929 forks and RC51 front wheel, and an aftermarket Erion racing replica fairing on this past winter. I am married with two kids, and my wife just acquired her mc permit and a 1991 Kawasaki ex 500. I have owned 72 Kawasaki H2, 85 500 Interceptor, 86 600 Ninja, 84 RZ350, 88,89,91 Cbr 600, 85 RZ 500 (the one bike until now I wish I never sold!) 87 YSR 50, 89 GSXR 1100, 86 VFR 750, 89 FZR 600, 2000 R1, 2 93CBR 900 RR's. Hope to make the Indy GP on the Duc this year and maybe trying to sneak in another track day this year, this time on the Duc, ( the two at Grattan this year were on the Cbr) just not sure when the belts were last done by the previous owner so that worries me a little bit. Hope to learn more about my bike (1st time Ducati owner it is very different from an inline four) and even get in some rides with other Ducati owners.

Hey Andy from Westfield about 6 miles from Indy Ducati. Just traded my 08 Multi for 11 pikes peak.   Looking forward to MotoGP hope to meet a lot of folks there. Also own a Moto guzzi breva 750 '04.   Rode out to Colorado springs about 2 weeks ago on the 08 was hot but better on way back.  Relative novice to riding bigger bikes but love the way the multi handles.

Hello im jim my wife and i have moved to IN here in the last 3 years, since then ive been mainly driving back to MI where most of my buddys live to ride but its 1 1/2 away, so i was hoping to meet people closer to south bend to ride with. a smidge of back ground on me, im 38 have a wife and daughter of 3 and a dog and cat. ive been riding since i was 11 years old, starting in dirt, snow, and street. ive done mx racing, hairscrambles, drag racing (sand and street) and road racing. i still do some track days here and there.

my current bikes are my first sport bike i ever bought a 1992 gsxr 1100, a 2003 crf450rx (street legal motocrosser) and my recently crashed to hell 2003 gsxr 1000. im in the process of the claim on that one and im hoping to pick 1 or 2 bikes up soon depending on ofcourse how much the pay out is. the only vtwin ive ever had relating to ducati's was my old TL 1000R street track bike, fairly modded, i did love the boom of the pipes. my short list of bikes im looking at is the 1098's 1100hyper motards, ktm 950 adventure, and 990 super duke's, plus another gsxr 1000, and a 03 colin edwards edition aprilia millie.

well i look forward to meeting people and possibly alittle riding to.

Hello,

My name is Brian and I live in Carmel.  Been riding bikes for most of my life (since I was 8yrs old), motocross and street bike.  But recently was on a 9 year hiatus!  I recently wanted to get back into riding so I just purchased a 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 evo, and I absolutely love this bike!  [thumbsup]  I have been cruising around Carmel and Westfield getting the old feeling back.  But, I am now looking to find a few others to ride with on longer trips.  If anyone in the area is looking for a ride let me know..

Just wanted to say hi to you guys.  I met a few of you at Moto GP this year and you had Scottish Bob with you, what a great guy.  You guys were great and you seem to represent Ducati at the GP with tons style, you're what it's all about.  HOOLIGANS I'm sure are just what Ducati had in mind for what a club should be like.  You're resent trip around Indiana tells it all and I love the stickers that seem to pop up out of no where and every where.  Keep up guys!  I have a saying, "sometimes you have to pull down your pants and slide on the ice".  The boring people in life have no clue what that means but I bet there are a few HOOLIGANS that can figure that out.

Great job Hoosier Hooligans!

Hello folks, Dave here from Fishers.

Just purchased my first Ducati (Monster 696) and my first bike ever.  Should have it by the end of next week once the guys sort out the prep next week.  Yeah I know I shot for the moon on the first try.  I have no other excuse then I have wanted a Ducati for some time and well made it happen.

Looking forward to meeting some of you in the future during local events.

I am a teacher in Fishers and have been at it for 11 years.  I live close to 37 between 141st and 146th streets.

Dave,

No problem, I would definitly stay in town to get used to the bike.  The best way I found was pick a route with a lot of round-a-bouts.  Like Carmel, Fischers has a lot of those round-a-bouts.  They are great for learning how to lean into a turn.

I would be willing to meet up if you wanted a little help.

Good call man, I know plenty of those close to me, so as soon as the bike is delivered I know where to head.  Will be in touch soon.  I also have a huge parking lot in the back of my school.  I am trying to get approval from admin to set up an ABATE course there, but until then it is a decent place for me to "practice" some of the things I need to get comfortable on the bike.

Good plan, as the motorcycle licences ride test wasn't easy.  About 65% passed when I was there to take it.
The written test was also not easy, I actually had to study...
Anyway, good luck, be careful, and shoot me a PM if you want to get together.

No worries, I took and passed the ABATE class last weekend and got my permit this past week.  I only have to wait for another 30 days and I will have my endorsement on my licene.  I am still clever enough to practice, practice, practice so I keep the Monster up on the rubber.

I'll be. I didn't know you could do that. Now that opens up a whole new realm of possibility for me. Now the gears are turning.

Hey all,

I actually registered on here about a year ago... been waiting to come across the right bike ever since. After watching countless youtube clips over the months I finally found my 2011 Monster 696 ABS about two weeks ago. It's my first bike and I've loved each of the 310 miles it has on it. I live in Elkhart and work in South Bend, hope to bump into some of you in between!

are cored exhaust, track tank, touring seat, open airbox, and a few little things

Hello, I'm picking up a 2012 monster 796 next saturday, wanted to join up with the Indiana Duc club.  Anyway I live in Southern Indiana bout 50 miles from Louisville, ky.  I'm coming from a Speed Triple but due to some major health issues I went from 230lbs to 180 in about a month's time (ouch) so I'm trading in my triple for a monster (something I feel more comfortable on).

I'm always looking for people to ride with or rides, and am really looking forward to owning a Ducati. So if anyone is in the general area feel free to PM or email me and let me know!

Derek

Hey Powerlifter. You are in good company here. Btw, I take it by your screen name you're into some heavy lifting. I used to be myself.......... anyway, If you get up this way My father-in-law, owns a gym here in SB. Lynch's Gym (don't bother looking it  up on the web, the guy doesn't even have a land line phone in the place, he's THAT old school! It's nothing but business there). Specifically, he trains olympic lifters. Anyway, I will personally make sure you get a complimentary Hooligan workout, and drink of your choice.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Powerlifter on May 05, 2012, 02:25:11 PM
Yup Derby weekend, I try and stay away from Louisville heh.  I actually work down there so I make that drive every day.  Yes I'm a powerlifter was competing in 242 class till I developed acute pancreatitis at beginning of year, went from 235 or so to 180 in a month. I'm waiting on clearance from my doc to start lifting again.  Shameless plug, I run ironscene.com which is a video site for powerlifting and other strength training. Look up under Team Mojo or Derek and that's me lifting.

Very cool about the gym, that's how I like to lift, I have a garage full of equipment where we train, screw commercial gyms. 

I'm picking up my bike next week, very excited about it, looking forward to some nice riding this summer in the hills and twisties down in this area.

Oh man that was a cold ride...had to stop once because I was shivering so bad the bike was swerving!
 Got home and pulled the filter and sat the whole bike in front of a propane heater to get the seat to dry out.

Whoa, wait how come?  Two people at Indy Ducati told me I could take them off and I didn't need to save them!

Let me guess I just voided the warranty. 


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Uncle Mofo on May 13, 2012, 11:28:57 AM
No you didn't void warranty, but if you ever need the bike inspected by the police, you need two locations on the bike to check the vin.
One being the steering neck and the other the sticker.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself and where ya at?
Post by: Powerlifter on May 14, 2012, 04:13:57 AM
I haven't peeled the VIN sticker on yet. Figure that one will stay until I get it registered.  How the heck can you peel those stickers off without destroying them?? I tried with no luck on the emissions sticker.

Let the bike sit in the sun for awhile, or heat up the sticker and peel gently!

Hi, my name is nick and im from the Niles, Granger area. Im new to ducati as only two days ago I purchased my new 2012 Ducati 848 Evo in red. I love the bike to death, however at only 20 years old there are very few people my age that have a ducati, or a street bike in general that i know. So if your in my area and would like to ride message me and I would be happy to meet up and ride. So I'm sure i will be commenting and learning on this forum and im excited to learn more about my Ducati.
I look forward to this opportunity,
Pics of the bike are soon to come, but its only stock.

My name is Kelly(I'm a guy, not a girl), live in Elkhart,IN. Recently made the switch from a S4RS to a Diavel Carbon. Been riding cycles for 42 years(yes I'm an old fuck, hence the more forgiving Diavel).

Learned of this forum in an interesting way....... Last week pulled out on East Jackson St. in my car to run errands. Looked in my rearview and noticed a bike behind me, nothing out of the ordinary. As the bike got closer I notice he forgot to turn off his turn signal, thought to myself "come on buddy pay attention". THEN I notice his turn signal is a LED signal just like mine! THERE'S ANOTHER DIAVEL IN ELKHART! I about shot my wad.

I immediately signaled to turn off into a parking lot and started waving the dude to follow me. He saw me at the last minute and pulled over. Shot the shit for a little and that is when I met Hoosier Hooligan Farthead on his Diavel Carbon.

Made my day.

Hello,  My name is Mike and I just moved from Indy to Valparaiso, IN at the end of July.  I bought a 2012 848 Evo Dark in May (the first of many Ducs I hope).  This is my first Ducati and as far as I'm concerned it will stay with me forever, even as I purchase new bikes.  I don't care what any recent articles may say about a certain Brit triple being a little better, I think the Evo is amazing.  BTW I highly recommend the Termis, as if I had to say that on here.  Looking for people to show me some good roads in the area, so pm me.

I am an IDesmo member and they are a great group of people.  I was at the open house at Indy Ducati on the 16th and once hearing that I had moved to Valpo Marco wasted no time in poaching a member.  Marco hooked me up with a Hooligan sticker which is already adorning my bike.  I also met Mossimo who resides in Valpo as well, I look forward to meeting more of the Hooligans soon.

I moved up to Valpo for family reasons and I am currently seeking job opportunities as well.  If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.  I am on Linkedin under Mike Hester previously with Fiserv for 14 years as a Technical Services Manager and Project Manager.

Again Thanks, and I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Moto GP weekend.

Roadrunner, call me anytime at 317-625-8337.  Sunday afternoon I had a great ride home.  I started out alone then about 25 miles on 65 a guy on a new Pannigale came up beside me.  The sound of his Pannigale with termis and my 848 Evo with termis harmonized beautifully.  It was amazing, it sounded like a squadron of P51 Mustangs.  We soon picked up more riders, by the time the rain started and we all squeezed under an overpass we had amassed 25 riders.  A new MV F4 RR and a couple of RSV4's and the rest was asian hardware.  As there is at least one law enforcement officer on here I won't give any details of any enfractions that may or may not have occurred.  ;D ;D  I will only say that I think I need to upgrade to the Pannigale due to power concerns.   ;) ;)

Roadrunner, call me anytime at 317-625-8337.  Sunday afternoon I had a great ride home.  I started out alone then about 25 miles on 65 a guy on a new Pannigale came up beside me.  The sound of his Pannigale with termis and my 848 Evo with termis harmonized beautifully.  It was amazing, it sounded like a squadron of P51 Mustangs.  We soon picked up more riders, by the time the rain started and we all squeezed under an overpass we had amassed 25 riders.  A new MV F4 RR and a couple of RSV4's and the rest was asian hardware.  As there is at least one law enforcement officer on here I won't give any details of any enfractions that may or may not have occurred.  ;D ;D  I will only say that I think I need to upgrade to the Pannigale due to power concerns.   ;) ;)

Ooooohhh... Rookie mistake. Dont post your phone number on the forums otherwise Grifo will start texting you naked pictures!

Hello everyone!  My name is Robert and I'm from Albion, IN.  How I came into the Ducati world...

A friend and I were out riding our 600's in Fort Wayne, enjoying the start of the 2011 riding season, when a driver, coming from the opposing direction, decided to cross traffic without looking, and struck both of us, totaling both bikes. 

While laid up, I was back n forth about getting another bike.  Once I was fairly sure I was going to purchase another one... then came the decision, what bike?  I loved my 03 Honda 600rr, great bike IMO.  Growing up around Honda's has defiantly swayed me that direction, plus most sportbikes I've sat on just don't have the comfort for street riding that Honda's do, again just my opinion.  I was looking into 08+ 1000rr's before the accident, so that's where I started my search.

I've always had an "interest" in Ducati's.  As I'm sure many do.  Just never really took the time to look into them, thinking they would be way out of my budget.  Started looking at some used 848's and 1198's, sticking with a sportbike / superbike, and found out a used Ducati is very comparable price wise to any new and sometimes used jap bikes.  So then came the serious interest!  I looked into the nearest Ducati Dealer so I could check them out in person, Zionsville.  While trying to plan a trip down there, my girlfriend reminded me of our yearly trip to Indy to visit some of her family, BINGO!  Couple of us took a couple hours out of our "vacation" and headed to the dealer!  Once there, I felt like a kid in a candy store... there's just something about Ducati's and the experience.  I was so infatuated at that point, I had to plan another trip down for a test ride!  Once I got back down to the dealer, I test rode an 848... omg... the power delivery... the LCD display... the sound... handling / weight... during the test ride I pulled 4 wheelies (purely from torque)... the first two were completely unintentional, just wanted to twist the throttle gradually and sort of "push" the bike within my limits to discover its power.  Front end just came up like it was nothing, you can imagine the overwhelming feeling of excitement I felt at that point.  3rd wheelie, I wanted to see how "controllable" it was when I was actually intending to do one... amazing.  4th I just had to push it again before I finished my ride!  :)  What an amazing machine.  We got back and Don offered me a test ride on the 1199, regrettably I tuned it down, the 848 had as much torque as I could imagine someone would need, especially for street use. 

The search for a low mileage, well priced 848 or 1198 had officially began! Kept thinking that MAYBE someday, after getting use to the 848, I might want more power.  Finally found a nice, 2,900 mile, 1198 about 3 hours from where I live, we agreed on a price, after making sure everything was legit, title was clear, and the dealer he purchased it from and had it serviced at verified everything was as he said it was, I headed his way!  Since this was in January, the roads were horrible, so I couldn't test ride it, but after seeing it in person, it was flawless, sounded great and everything, I was actually a little intimidated by the sound.  Guy turned out to be a great dude.  We had those couple freak warm days in January (i think)... got it out for the first time... WOW... the second day, I got into it just a little and the front end came up like it was nothing... incredible amount of torque.

I recently went back down to Zionsville to order my riding gear.  Tommy and I were bullshitting when he asked me if I knew about the Hoosier Hooligans, I hadn't.  Came home and looked you guys up! Never been apart of a riding club, figured it could be a great experience.  Plus it's always fun to have ppl to ride with.

Well that's basically my story, lol.  Didn't think I would be typing a book. I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you, sharing experiences, making new ones, and making some new friends / riding buddies!!!

Hey, I'm Ray from southwest Ft.Wayne Indiana. I ride an 02 998 that I bought used in 2011. It's not perfect but it's the style of Ducati I've wanted since first seeing the 916. It's my daily rider,track day and road trip bike. In other words, I ride it as much if not more than I look at it. Would like to find other 998 owners and pick their minds about the in's and outs of their 998's and just compare notes.

I don't see many 998's around so its good to know SOMEONE else around here has one! I have a buddy who has a couple of Duc's but I don't know if he knows of this site so I will ask him the next time I see him. I work 2nd shift so my schedule doesn't match up with hardly anyone else's and I miss out on a lot of rides as a result. I make what I can when I can though! I look forward to meeting and riding with other club members should time allow!

Post by: ShawnDs2r on June 24, 2013, 05:17:31 AM
So, I guess I haven't formally introduced myself yet on here so here goes........ My name is Shawn I'm 26 year old single father of 2. I have a little girl just turned 4 (Kenadie) and a son who is 1.5 (Titus). I have always had a passion for things that go fast, I started at an early age on four-wheelers and just progressed as I got older. My older brothers have always rode bikes so I've always wanted to ride. About a year and a half ago I lost my wife in car accident and I needed to find something that I could use to free my mind of the everyday stresses of life so I started to look around. Naturally as many of us motor head, speed junkies do I came back to my passion and started to ride again. I bought a gsxr 600 and loved it but I truly was looking for something with the torque on demand that I was used to. My brother Travis aka "scout" made the mistake of letting me ride his duc s2r1000 and I was hooked like a bass on a spinner bait. So thus began my buying and selling spree to get my first Ducati.  As a single pops money doesn't flow like wine so I had to make it via craigslist lol. I bought and sold 2 motorcycles, 2 quads, and some odds and end stuff and low and behold I found my Ducati 2008 s2r1000 in Nashville TN. I've never owned a piece of equipment that every time I walk into my garage It excites me. I have never been bored when I ride her. Thus leading me into a Ducati passion that is comparable to wonderful marriage lol. And leading me to this hooligan site and brotherhood. In saying all that I'm a speed/race junkie nothing gets my heart pumping more, from my race karts on the dirt track, to fresh warm tires on asphalt following a curvy Indiana back road.  I was a bull-rider in high school and while that was pretty close still don't think that beats it. Anyway I'm in Lafayette area and if you are to look me up and we'll rip some road together.

Well folks, here it goes... I read this forum allows members with other makes. My name is Andrew, and i ride a suzuki... I wont apologize, I love my SV1000S (at least its a twin). I would love to own a Ducati 996, 998,999,848,Hyper,etc, but my bank account wont allow.
I rode my first Duc, a 996s about 10 years ago, and fell in love. My friend that owned it,that has since passed away described it as sex without a woman, but better than masturbation. I believe he was right.
I would like to meet/ ride with some fellow riders with the same interests.
If im not welcome, just say so and i wont hang out here. I live in martinstucky, but work in Indy, and live just miles from some of the best motorcycle roads indiana has to offer.

I will be staying in Zionsville and am planning to ride with the Red Snake (2014) I hope to meet some of my fellow Ducatisti!

BTW- My user name is Martire but I go by Martin. I was supposed to be named after my grand father but he changed his name to Martin when he immigrated to the US. I like his original name and use it. (:

Post by: jamesnewtonjr on April 17, 2015, 04:06:25 AM
Hello, I'm James Newton from Indys North Eastside. I've owned  several motorcycles of various makes including a 900 M and I'm now the proud owner a 2003 Ducati 999. The bike was very well maintained and loved and I intend to do the same!

I'm looking forward to particapating in Hooligan runs and events! Could somebody out there tell me when / where it would be best to introduce myself and learn a bit more about the club?

I can be reached via this forum, at jamesnewtonjr@gmail.com

I've been riding for about 25 years: Japanese bikes from cruisers to GSXR's and ZX6R's. Discovered a Ducati Monster 796 about 3 years ago……… and haven't looked back! I love making mods to my bikes, and this Monster has Arrow slip-ons, various Risoma parts, and REXXER ECU tuning (great mod!!!).
I'm from Brookville, OH (near Dayton), and hope to ride over for some Hooligan events. Any particular events this summer that I should plan on attending?

Hi cliff, we have the Italian festival in July. A kart race coming up in June, and the red snake ride in August.
Along with occasional get together and rides.

Hello all!  Just back in the Duc game from being away since the late 90's.  Picked up a sweet '99 Monster with a 944 kit and all kinds of other goodies on it.  Hoping to meet up and do some rides.  I live up in West Carmel which is rather convenient and close to the dealer  8)  Here is a couple pics of the new girl.  Hope to meet you all soon!

Thanks!  Yes, the stuff done to this one and the parts list is 2 pages long!  It literally has EVERYTHING i would do to it already done.  Previous owner spent some serious coin on this bike!

Brian, South Bend

I have an 03 Monster 620ie Dark. I've had it for a few months now, and after working out all of the issues caused by neglect from the previous owner, I have absolutely fallen in love with this bike.(http://i.imgur.com/s1Lguy4.jpg)

Hi Bruffy here from the Ducati Owners Club of Western Australia.
We had our AGM last night and in a bundle of stuff that I won as a raffle prize was a Hoosier Hooligans cloth patch. I have no idea how the club came by it but I will be sewing on to my leathers as soon as I get a spare minute.
Just thought that I would send a quick shout out from Western Australia

Hey everyone, glad to be part of the club.   Just picked up my first ducati (95 916).  I live in Valparaiso and work in south Bend. Having some trouble locating a good mechanic that appears to know what they're talking about. Want to know she's tip top before I'm too rough on her. If any body has any ideas where they would take theirs I could sure use a hand. Thanks guys.

Title: Introduction
Post by: James S. on August 16, 2016, 03:03:23 PM
Hello all. My name is James and I'm from Elkhart, IN. I got into this motorcycle ridding thing a little late. My uncle had been nagging me for a few years to get a bike, and I eventually jumped in. About 2 years ago I started looking. I've always been a fan of sport bikes. I saw a picture of the sexiest looking motorcycle I had ever seen while doing a google search for sport bikes. I didn't know what it was, but I wanted one! After some research I discovered the identity of the bike in question, a Panigale. I was talked out of buying it because it would've been my first time ridding. I settled on a really nice 2014 Triumph Street Triple 675r. After my ABATE class, and a year of ridding, the Panigale was still fresh on my mind. So...I bought one last year, and have loved it ever since. I have 2 small children, 8 and 4, so I don't get the chance to ride to often. I'm a huge sports fan, football, basketball and golf mostly. Just wanted to introduce myself to the group. Safe ridding all!  [thumbsup]

Hey there fellow hooligans!  :L My name is Brian and I am from Granger, IN. I just got back into riding after a 20 year hiatus. I know, I know, how can I go that long. Rode a Bultaco in high school and a Yamaha 750 Special in my early twenties but with having a family and a career I fell out of the two wheel fun. Now, after listening to the amazing sound of Ducati after Ducati on Lakeshore Drive in downtown Chicago, I had to have one of my own. I was lucky enough to find a 2008 Monster S2R 1000 in Madison, WI. What an amazing bike. Every time I get off of her I want to get right back on. I guess if you are going to have a mid-life crisis this is the best way to do it. Look forward to seeing some of you out on the roads and at some events.

Used to have this awesome electric razor dirt bike back in the day (2006-2010) but then grew up and got something with a little bit more pep.  I'm from Granger IN and I ride a 1981 Yamaha Seca 550 that I'm in the process of converting to a cafe racer.  I've done a couple of key components so far such as lowering the front forks, throwing on clip ons, and of course bar end mirrors.  This winter I've got much more in the works to really get her dialed in and ready for track day next spring  :L  http://(http://i.imgur.com/MqpQlGW.jpg) (http://imgur.com/MqpQlGW)
