So I decided to play my hand (put my cards of the table) and step out from behind the veil of anonymity!

Here is the PM I sent Admin ...

I wondered how long it would take admin to shut the thread down.
I did think that it would be aprox 4/5 pages ... I was not wrong!

I will assume that you ride bikes? And based upon that assumption your motives for locking that thread must come under close inspection.
If you care about people and the lives they have you would leave this thread locked and make it a sticky ... or your motives are questionable and you will let it slip off the front page and into room 101 of threads.
Should that happen I will put the Ducari-Scrambler forums on MY LIST ALSO.
I do not want to do that ... so PLEASE show me you care about those of us who already are exposed to enough danger just sharing the roads with cagers!

Is this forum affiliated with Ducati, in anyway and thus you wish to avoid any publicity that is NOT to your liking?

I am in contact with Ravi Avalur, (the MD of Ducati, India) so he already knows who I am, how much damage I can do and what I seek.

Once I have collected all the people who have had the same issue ... and I can justify a recall on the CLEARLY defective part. That is what I want to see happen!
I seek zero financial recompense. I am not interested in MONEY from Ducati!
My company alone is predicted to be in the top 5 of my industry in India by 2025 ...
Dr.Howards's Way
Both my families (blood and in-laws) are wealthy beyond the necessity for money. My family (Howard) sold an international brand in 2005. I do NOT want money!
I do however, want Ducati, to take the lives of it's customers VERY seriously.

Clearly this is not about money (out of court settlement) for me ...
MY FAMILY ARE WORTH MORE MONEY THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW EXISTS !!!
Here is the history of Howard foundation research institute, and the
nutritionally complete total food replacement. Then medical
research/clinical trials demonstrating the safety and efficacy of what
I do. And finally the ADA (American diabetes association) recommending what I do for children and adults with (acute onset Insulin resistance) type 2 diabetes

The history of the VLCD and the Howard foundation research institute - housed in Cambridge university

Chairman of Howard foundation (my uncle) - Dr Alan Howard MA, PhD, FRIC

Wilkins Fellow of Downing College, Cambridge University and Honorary Professor at University of Ulster. His career at Cambridge University spans 50 years and he has held positions in the Department of Investigative Medicine and Pathology as well as the Dunn Nutritional Laboratory, before founding his own laboratory at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, which was closed in 1999. He has published over 250 original articles in medical literature and authored and edited 8 major books on coronary heart disease and obesity. He was co-founder of the International Journal of Obesity and was involved in the foundation of the International Congress on Obesity and the European Atherosclerosis Society. His work on obesity led to the development of Very Low Calorie Diets, leading to a number of commercial products including his own formulation of the Cambridge Diet, which has been used by millions of people world-wide. In 1982, he established the Howard Foundation, a charitable trust supporting bio-medical research at the University of Cambridge, and which has provided 3 buildings at Downing College between 1987 and 2009.

Howard Foundation - Trustees

Cambridge Weight Plan (CWP) and Cambridge Manufacturing Company Limited (CMC) were up until 2005 owned by The Howard Foundation - a charitable trust established by Dr Alan Howard in 1982. The aims of the Foundation is to provide funding for biomedical research in the fields of obesity, nutrition and key areas of health.

Further aims include the funding, construction and maintenance of
buildings at Downing College, Cambridge University, and the
establishment of scholarships for international students.

Howard's way (my mothers company) has been featured on discovery
health (they made a programe about us called desperate dieters) which has been aired over 30 times now ! We were also featured in the "Times of London" due to a client of mine, Simon Glazin, he is a famous fashion journalist from London who lost over 30kg - and at the time of the article he was maintaining for over 3.5 years (the article is over 5 years old now, so over 8 years of maintaining). Also on my mothers website are various glossy magazines with nation wide distribution levels who had featured various members of our client base who had lost 20kg + and kept it off for danger time for regain (the 1'st year).

We have also had celebrity clients from both stage and screen reduce
body fat levels with us on our system.

My out of court settlement is that Ducati, do a recall on the huger once I have proven that the numbers warrant it!


Matthew Howard.

Delete this thread and you will expose yourself as having your bread buttered by Ducati, and possibly not even be into riding!

Ray am I right to think that none of the bikes of which you are aware of that have had the issue have come out of the Bologna factory?

Correct . To my knowledge the scrambler is the only bike to come out of the assembly plant in Thailand.
However, that does NOT let Ducati, off the hook! This bike was NOT made in Thailand ...

There is ONLY ONE saving grace here ...
Ducati, were having such financial issues that they were brought out by Audi, and now we can all expect the L-twin engine we all know and LOVE to be strapped to something that will do 16,000km with-out parts falling off :blob8:

What I've gathered from this thread so far:

-something about Ducati, safety, and the mods

-I AM VERY RICH EVERYBODY LOOK AT HOW RICH I AM HERE IS PROOF I AM RICH BE IMPRESSED BY MY WEALTH BUT THIS ISNT ABOUT MONEY. BUT I AM VERY RICH.

-I AM VERY SMART I HAVE VERY HIGH IQ DO NOT MESS WITH MY KNOWLEDGE BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT OF IT. EVERYONE BE IMPRESSED WITH ME.

Dude, chill out. I stopped following your last thread for the same reason it was closed - it was going nowhere, fast and way too loud. Feel free to update us (in a new thread) on the development of the case, preferably in a neutral tone.

Bragging about your family, net worth and/or education seems somewhat inappropriate on an international motorcycle forum. I'm sure it gets you a few favors and a great deal of good will in your local community but being born rich impresses noone.

I would like to express my appreciation to the thread starter for airing out his displeasure with a ducati product and making noise in the hope that those concerned would take action to rectify matter that all of us would benefit from. I own 3 ducatis and i also have a few complaints with each bike but my family is not wealthy and neither am i so i can only complain like any ordinary consumer would. I admire and am impressed that mr howard and his family is very very rich. Where i come from, wealthy families when unhappy about a certain product or service of another company, instead of complaining, tend to buy out that company and do as they wish with it in order to improve the product and/or service. So since the good TS's family is "WORTH MORE MONEY THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW EXISTS!!!", i suggest that he should buy out ducati from audi and hopefully we can see better products and services under his management. So unless he does that, he should just STFU.

Being concerned about other people who could be killed by a defective part that we almost ALL own ... yeah.
Now I have considered the communication, understanding and intelligence levels here ... I should just let social Darwinism take it's natural course!

You may all go away and play Russian roulette. YOUR MORE THAN WELCOME FOR THE INTEL! FUCKING CRETINS!

What a shame you missed the point of that PM to Admin (jaw breaking yawn). THAT PM WAS TO ADMIN. If you took something negative from that which was NOT addressed to you then may I suggest that you look in the mirror and not project your personality BS onto me
My intention was to come to a forum where everyone has the same bike and ask if others had experienced the same issue at any point. And also WARN potential victims of what I had to get through.

However
, in 4 pages I realised why I gave forums up MANY moons ago ... because the threads descend into off topic horse shit / self appointed experts who can't back up the claims they make for themselves / people who get pissy because what you have is a FAR better ONE than their version (DID I MENTION THAT THE CARBON FIBER ALONE IS COSTING £3900 / $4792) / people who misrepresent what you have said because now they don't like you due to the fact that you reminded them how mundane and tragically repetitive their existence is / Mods and Admin who only do this task because they fit into the category of "Billy no mates" while entertaining the power trip that having the smallest amount of AUTHORITY OVER OTHERS gives them (they normally get sexually aroused and masturbate while utilising this authority).

I have noticed that the traffic on this forum is so infinitesimally small, that 1 Admin and zero Mods can cover it. Pfffttt ...
Count-down to Admin locking this thread in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

No matter where you go on the in internet you find the same thing!
The fact that everyone in that particular space has something in common bears zero relation to how they interact.
So far I have seen 3 people who were either appreciative of my informing you of a potential (life threatening) hazard and one who could see exactly what had happened from the video and pics.
The same thing that a technician with over 15 years on Suzuki, and Yamaha, had already said.
The same thing that I had had already said.
The same thing that 7 other experienced engineers had already said!

Where do you come from son ... Disney FUCKING land !?
I have a better suggestion. You can get on your filthy untermensch knees and SMFC
Anymore Keyboard warriors who want to step up to the REALITY plate can get on a flight (that I will pay for) to Mumbai international ... where my driver will pick you up and drive your swanky low-rent arse 5.9hrs to where I am right now and you can tell me to my face ...

NOPE ... I DIDN'T THINK SO!

12,290,463 views more than this forum would get if you started it at the BIG-BANG and continued it until the universe gets sucked into a monolithic Black-Hole with a little fizzle and then a barely audible "POP!"

So ... <10 known failures for >18,000 Scramblers sold to date. None of them fatal.

I'll take those odds :)

A 0.05% failure rate with non-fate consequences isn't likely to inspire a full recall. A safety advisory to dealers, maybe. Recall, no way.

I started my first company in India with my own hands. And as I have clearly stated ... it is predicted to be in the top 5 in my industry in India by 2025.
That is a sub continent of over 1.37 BILLION people.
The population of the ENTIRE EU is under 0.75 Billion.
Again ... get on your low-rent untermensch knees and SMFC! :cheerful:

Ducati, India are doing a recall when I get that in writing in Jan (people are out of town till Jan) I will send you screen shot of the email chain ...
YOU WERE SAYING?

Happy to do that too. PM me.

I will PM you now however, you do know this will not be MMA right? I have been training with FMA for 9 years now Silat, Eskrima and Kalhi ... but I am focusing on the baton and edge weapon drills.



The last clown (a door man in Mumbai) who tried to give it charlie BIG-SPUDS even though I had agreed to leave after doing serious damage to a guys face ... the door man would not get out of my face so I smashed his left radial and his right tibia and folded his left knee in from the side with a 500gm 4210 steel ASP disc-loc Talon.
I paid the cops INR50,000 and they dropped the charges.
Feel free to come see me on my home turf where the law will NOT protect you and the only mercy you will get is from me (depending on if I got laid last night!)
My recommendation is that you stay behind your :computer: like a good little boy and cum to some more gay porn!

Feel free to keep the ball-gag, gimp suit and dog leash I have just used to walk you round this thread on your hands and knees ... I will have no further use for it!

I have no intention of fighting. Just explaining statistical reality to your face, which is what you were asking for.

If physical threats are the best you can manage in response, that says a great deal about you and the strength of your argument.

Bloody hell Ray, for someone who gave forums up you do babble on with a load of unrelated crap. I was going to sit back quietly and watch this thread hoping you had something intelligent and informative to share with us. Not happening so far, seems like you just want to bignote yourself and are hoping to get this thread closed as well so you have something else to whinge about. Try growing up, forgetting the threats and raving about how great you are and share some constructive ideas with us. That's pretty much what most of us tried in your first post until you spat the dummy. All of us here are Scrambler owners and naturally interested in possible faults etc so calm down, talk rationally and you might even enjoy the forum.
