i went riding today.

left my house at 10:30AM - it was already 94 degrees, humid and the sun was baking everything in existence.

14 miles later i see a massive rain cloud consuming the entire city.

stopped at a gas station "just in time" to hang out under the car port.

got on my bike again about 20 minutes later - 3 miles down the road i got hit for about 3 minutes with some pretty good rain.

but it felt sooooooooo goooooooood riding in the rain.....

i got home and my shoes were still "squishing", but my jeans and my shirt were real dry lol.

riding bikes is such an amazing experience......

Thx! Night and day from a handling perspective. The solid wheels push the bike around at speed and when it's windy.

I have to say, as a sport bike guy who has always loved street fighters and naked bikes, even when the V-Rod first came out I thought to myself that although I never saw myself on a cruiser, I'd definitely rock a V-Rod. It's a badass bike and still looks the business. Then the Diavel came out and the rest was history for me

P.S. I just added my second hardcore super performance mod for my Diavel... Wait for it... A carbon fiber rear brake fluid reservoir cap cover! Yeah! Definitely gained like 5000 horsepower with that one. Hehe just kidding but it does look really sweet. The first was, you guessed it, a carbon fiber front sprocket cover. Yeah!

^ how do you like the Diavel? or is that maybe an obvious question given your comments above LOL.

Not sure I understand that bike. I didn't have much interest in that bike after seeing it and sitting on it... and I even like Ducati's. The rear tire looks wider than necessary which I'd presume would make the handling worse. Looks mean though.

Took a ride tonight in my area. These damn warm temps do not make my air-cooled bike too happy when having fun or hitting stop lights around town.




On a separate note: I posted pictures early in this thread from the trip I recently took in Europe... but here is a little video I put together on one of the many mountain passes (Passo di Manghen in Italy).

Thought I'd share... the camera is shooting off the back of the 1200S Multistrada I had on the trip. My dad is chasing behind me.

Wow that scenery is breathtaking, I hope one day to be the dad riding with my kids in Europe like that. Great music and editing by the way, made for an entertaining viewing.

Anyway yes I love my Diavel. The first time I sat on one at a dealer, I hated it, and actually got depressed because I thought it felt like a cruiser and that I am all of a sudden an old man.

My previous bikes ...

1990 Suzuki GS500 (starter but beat crap out of it at track days)
2000 Suzuki SV650 (awesome bike, raced it in WSMC)
2001 Ducati 748S (the love of my life)
2001 Aprilia SL1000 Falco (amazing and mean sounding Mille cousin)
2006 BMW K1200R (the terminator, got first day moved to FL)

As you can see, mostly nakeds or sportbikes, but nothing cruiser-esque. Hence my initial dislike of the Diavel seating position.

I live in Florida which has influenced my last 2 bike choices greatly. Originally in So Cal, I would never have considered the Diavel. But here there are no canyons and no winding roads, except onramps.

I had issues with my K1200R tranny and decided to sell the bike rather than fix it, and I really wanted to get another Ducati (my last one was a beloved 2001 748S). Out of the current Ducati lineup I felt a Superbike would be a waste in Florida, as I am not doing track days or racing anymore, and there are only onramps for turns. The Multistrada just didn't do it for me visually, so that left Diavel, Monster, Streetfighter, or Hypermotard.

I started to research and read lots on the Diavel, how it handles amazingly, feels sportbike-like, and how the 240 rear tire was co-developed wih Pirelli to maximize performance and cornering ability. I also revisited the looks of it and realized its a drop dead gorgeous bike, and my main issue was feeling like an old man sitting on it that one day at the dealer.

I bit the bullet and put a deposit on one without a test ride, waited 2 months to get the bike, and WOW. All the reviews are true. You can ride it hard, scrape pegs on 90 degree street turns, and it handles unlike anything you would expect from the way it looks.

I have about 1500 miles on mine now, after almost 1 year ... My first Ducati had 1500 miles after a month, but I had a lot less other stuff going on back then in my life. For a pleasure cruiser here in FL, it's comfy, sporty, and can handle like a sport bike even with the 240 size rear tire.

If I was still in Cali, I'd have a Streetfighter S, although honestly I would keep the Diavel too, as I have really come to love the bike (from the moment I took delivery) and looking at it while taking a break on a long ride, or in my garage, never gets old. My longest ride so far has been 265 miles, around lake okechobee....

Ever heard of The Dragon, 311 turns in 9 miles or something? Well here in FL we have lake okechobee... 9 turns in 311 miles (more or less!). Only in Florida do they figure out how to put straight roads going around a Round lake!

Racefit isnt the only growler system that is available. There are many that offer growler systems, Racefit is just one of them. Check out Hotbodies' systems and products. They have a lot of racing presence in WSBK and AMA.

Wow I'm so happy that there are Ducati riders here.

I started with a Buell xb9r firebolt but after less than a year got bored and happened across my new bike
Ducati 848
I love this thing. I know I could have gotten a bigger 1098 or 1198 but hey I got it used and a hell of a deal.
2010 with 990 mi on it. Just had first service done.
It's great at everything. Street, highway and of course what it's made for the twisties!!
Leaves my buddies zx6 and 675 Daytona behind and everyone's eyes are going straight to the Duc everyone!!!
Damn. Can't add photos on the inline program.

Made an addition to my garage yesterday. I needed a commuter bike and always liked 5k Gixxer 1000s for some odd reason. Did some searching, very tough to find one that was never wrecked, stretched or some other nonsense. I resorted to annoying my buddy into selling his spare bike to me . I don't have a lot of seat time on it yet but it already feels better than S1, a lot more comfortable and street friendly. Most importantly this bike has zero vibrations, S1 owners know what i am referring to.

Grats. What will you be using the S1 for now that you have the gsxr?

Also, are the tires on the S1 and the gsxr the same?!

I love MV agusta. They are amazing bikes. I'm a huge fan of them, as well as Aprilia. I almost bought one instead of my old m coupe!
I would be very interested in a real life review

^No more street riding, only track for me. 08 CBR600rr.

Favorite mod has to be the Brembo RCS19 Master Cylinder. That bitch will about throw you over the handlebars when you hit your brake markers. Just picked up a Penske Triple Clicker rear shock sprung for my weight, haven't been able to test it out yet though!

I will do sunday twisties runs and occasional track day on it. Yeah those tires are the same, Power Ones. GSXR will get either Q2 or Road 3 swapped in next time around, Power 1s are stupid sticky but they require long warm ups.

16s are ok for 600s, nothing wrong with that. Higher HP bikes like mine are very demanding on tires and 16s are a tad sloppy on higher lean angles. Give Q2s a try next time around, great tire for the price.
