The ebay fraudster who would post adverts of bikes that didn’t even exist with start prices of 99p and in the description either saying he was selling them on behalf of his brother or a friend etc etc. He always said in the description do not bid for the listing but e mail him direct..
Many of us frustrated by his actions reported him via the report option on the listing only to find yes, the listing taken down only for him to put the same adverts up again the next day..
Last week he had 21 adverts all saying exactly the same in a row under “ Ducati for sale”
On e bay ..
I decided enough was enough and phoned ebay eventually getting through to their fraud dept. I told them that many Ducati enthusiast are boycotting their site now as they are totally fed up of the fraudulent listings etc and are avoiding the site because of it.. At first I was told that they were aware of such issues. However when I said how we had all reported this chap only for the listings to reappear the...

I have joined the forum after visiting for some weeks.
I spent nine years in France before returning to the UK. Presently, I live in the Newark (Notts) area.
I have my first Ducati and it is a SS1000DS.
I thought hard about wether to go for a 900SS or 1000DS . I preferred the earlier fairing shape to the later type.
Anyway, I chose to go for the 1000DS as the engine seemed to be the pinnacle of the air cooled two valve SS. So specification over looks, although my bike is grey and the excesses of curves in the fairing seem to be muted by the colour.
The bike is a handsome machine.
It has a sawn-off air box and Termignonis and is lazily quick.
That's a bit about me and mine.
Hi there !
I’d like to introduce myself to everybody, as I’ve just joined up ...
I’m a born-again rider, after taking a family ‘time-out’ and wanted to have somewhere I could feel part of a group of riders with similar bikes to mine. My new partner and I both have Ducati’s - he was the one who influenced me - as I was always a Honda rider as a youngster ( I have a CB400/4 f2 also)
Above is a photo of my 851 SP2 ...
I’m just starting out out a pro photographer for my second career and one of my passions is bike & car photography.
Looking forward to reading lots of good stuff on here - and getting useful help with things !
Hoping it’s as sunny & dry where you are at the moment - and that you can go out for a great ride today !
The Bologna-based Company makes Streetfighter V4’s arrival in 2020 official
The PPIHC race track in Colorado (United States) chosen as the proving ground for the new Ducati Streetfighter model
Carlin Dunne, who won the 2018 edition of the race, will be riding the prototype
Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 13 June 2019 - Ducati is preparing for the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb; in this edition, which will start on June 30th, Carlin Dunne will tackle the most famous hill climb in the world on the Streetfighter V4 prototype.
As part of the development process of the new model, the "Race to the Clouds" has been identified as an ideal proving ground for testing the high performance of the Streetfighter V4.
In keeping with tradition, the Streetfighter V4 derives directly from the sporty Panigale V4 stripped of its fairings, and fitted with high and wide handlebars. The high performance of the 1100 cm³ Desmosedici Stradale is kept in hand by aerodynamic profiles...
Wanted to make my "strip" verson to my 1100 Evo SP
Original cover was painted with original Ducati red (PPG 473.101 Ducati red).
The strip was cut into foil and mounted on a matte ground surface. Then it was lacquered with clear lacquer. Have not seen it before and I like the result
Well your amazing Admin (that's me just in case you'd not noticed or forgotten) has done it again!

I just couldn't contain my excitement any longer so here are 2 pics of my MTS with my version of the Luck Explorer graphics, expertly interpreted and done by @evoboy.
He took my sketches and worked with the lines of the bike - I think he's done a great job.
I pick it up tomorrow and will take some quality pics during the week to share.
Forgot I had done this as it was about 3 months ago, mag dropped through my door this morning...
I decided to join the sticker promotion again for the business and reduced the sticker size so I could blag a Ducati Forum sticker in there again
Plenty of Italian content this month too which is good timing - a 5 page V4R article in the Performance Bikes section too...

Borgo Panigale, (Bologna, Italy), 6 June 2019 – On the occasion of the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, two brand-new Ducati MIG-RR E-MTB were handed over to Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci.
The factory riders of the Mission Winnow Ducati team will make good use of the E-MTB to integrate them into their training sessions and enjoy them in their free time.
The MIG-RR is an enduro E-MTB with 170 mm of wheel travel at the front and 160 mm at the rear. It mounts top-drawer components such as the Shimano Steps E8000 motor with 504 Wh battery, FOX Factory Kashima suspension, 4-caliper Shimano Saint brakes, Mavic wheels (29” front, 27,5” rear), carbon fibre Renthal handlebars and a livery specially developed by D-Perf, owned by Aldo Drudi.

I'm getting a new bike, possibly on Wednesday. But guess what? It's not a Ducati. It's a Triumph Speed Twin. Why?
I am still the owner, on paper, of a 999. I haven't seen it for 3 and a half years. Will I see it this season? In theory, yes, although my "garagiste" phoned me a few weeks ago to say that although it was the only bike he had left to deal with (he is retired, in theory) he had just fallen off at the track (again) and put a 12-stitch-long gash in his thigh. Right, I thought, I won't be seeing it until June again at the earliest. And who knows, maybe not even then.
This farce has gone on long enough, I thought. I need a new bike.
So what bike? Well, the one I like most is the MV F3 800. But if the Ducati reappears, it won't be worth selling (50'000 kms and 13 years old) and I like it too much to sell anyway. But the MV is just a different flavour of the same thing - wind it on and see if you can't get your knee down in the corners. In the current regulatory Swiss...
I've just done a deal with SMC for their ex demo V4s, I should be picking it up by the end of the week. I think I got a good deal in the end, and got the first service and an extra yrs warranty out of them. The bike has a couple of nice extra's like evotec rad guards, rizoma bar ends and rizoma lever savers. Photo's coming soon.
