The Duc will have its page I guess, but don't get too excited, I am not the kind of guy that goes finetuning his machine for ages like dingo is doing on his Evo for instance

New exhaust, maybe some more here and there like wheels indeed, but I guess it will stop quite quickly and the rest of the time will be spent riding it instead of toring it apart!

Good thinking, long term, they don't exactly sound shit to start with but Ducs should set of car alarms really.

The wheels aren't cheap so go for pipes first.

Well done again.

Nope, as I said, useless to take crappy pics in the dealership, so I better try to resist some more. I might be able to take the first quick snaps already Friday evening if I can leave work early enouh to still have some light!

Thanks again everybody.

Today I left the office early just to go to the garage, do a quick walkaround and give the Duc a caress before going home.

Dang, it's hard to resist. They confirmed it will be ready with plates and insurance Friday. That's basically less than 48 hours, but they'll be daaaaamn long!

Weird enough, it fits me perfectly. Not a bike for a 180 cm tall guy IMO

And.. SUPRISE!! It was ready 24 hours earlier!!!!!!!!!







More to come in the "What do you drive or ride" section after I'll have something to eat
