  1. After all Ducati's are social animals. The need companionship.

    My wife is starting to believe they multiply like gremlins.

  3. I'd have to try and convince the wife they were all the same bike ;)
  4. nice work. how do you find time to ride em all?
  5. I've got 4 and it is a problem, often I take my favourite of the moment out but feel I should take one of the others out cos it's not been ridden, nice problem to have though, always worth bearing in mind the following formula as well

    X multiple bikes = neglected wife = zero bikes + zero house.

  6. After 21 years my wife is acclimated to my antics. I see it this way... It salves my hunting instincts. Without the bike, bicycles, or any other random interest I find my self partaking of I would most likely be a serial philanderer.

    Love one woman and many hobbies!

  7. I've a wife with a similar problem... it's called shoes!
  8. I've no wife (or GF at moment) so I buy whatever bike(s) I feel the need to and keep them and work on them whenever and wherever I choose.
  9. You sir have the process well sorted.
  10. How kind.:upyeah:
  11. Yeah but who does the cooking, washing and cleaning?
  12. Yeah but who does the cooking, washing and cleaning?
  13. I can cook to an acceptable standard and I wash and clean all my bikes with no problems at all. :p Some times I wash and clean myself as well, usually on my birthday. :D

  14. I thought the formula was much simpler... N (Bikes) +1
  15. I am sure take away's, and laundry are much cheaper than a wife!

  16. Nice collection, when does the Panigale arrive?

    A question for you; which is your favourite Piles Peak? I always regret not having the Mk 1 (Jenson Button's old Pit Bike) when I had the chance......

    PS I find if the wife has a horse it makes life very easy :)

  17. I don't think ill be adding a Panigale anytime soon, and the 2012 is my favorite.
    In fact if I had to have one bike only it would be the 2012 Pikes Peak.
    Don't get me wrong I think the 2016 DVT is a brilliant machine, But the 2012 is just so raw and visceral when you want it to be, and you can throw down big miles at ease with comfort as well.
    I will most likely add a Monster 1100 S as my next acquisition , I want to try a 2 valve aircooled dry clutch bike. maybe a similar Hypermoto if the Monster doesn't fit.
