Hi Simon
Looks real good and you certainly have better weather than what is predicted for when I pick up my bike wednesday!

How are you liking the bike so far?

Was there a red Icon in the showroom?

Hi Tony

I spoke to Mike yesterday and yours isn't due in until Monday. I did ask and I did look for you.

I went out for about 45 minutes this morning for a first ride. I cannot fault it at all.
It will burble along slowly or really kick if you want it to.
No issues with stalling, neutrals or suspension.
In fact, with my new Shoei Air helmet on and the sun visor down it was nice And quiet and smooth. The gearbox is a dream.
I can't wait to go out again for longer.
You won't be disappointed.

Glad to hear you are really enjoying the new ride Simon :)

Blimey I wonder if it will get there as was due last Wednesday but on Thursday was told either that day or or Friday....have sorted insurance out for switch over for Wednesday afternoon as advised by Mike so hopefully Monday it will be!

Glad you like it, obviously you're going to ignore the sign.
What helmet did you change from ?
I'm wondering about the Shoei air next as I have an XR1100 and really like it but was hoping for the Air to be a bit quieter.
Looks good with the Urban seat, not too racey and not too retro like my Enduro. like it.

By the way I appreciate you enquired after the Icon on my behalf :)

Did you get the fancy Ducati wallet thingy? Just wondering if it fits under the seat or I may need to take a bag with me...

Sorry to butt in, but I know the leather document wallet will not fit under the seat. What you do get though is a tool kit wrapped in a nice canvas pouch with Scrambler written across it.
It's green like the Urban which is nice but it will suit your bike too.

Ta I guess I better take my Kriega US10 and hope it fits in there...

Looking great, have loads of fun (you will! :D ).

TC3 so glad you are finally near to getting yours, the handbook no way will it fit under the seat, the space there is minimal, just about big enough for a phone! You will def need some kind of rucksack or tailback/tankbag. I take a waist bag for bare essentials and a rucksack if I'm going farther afield!

Si apologies for hijacking your thread :)

Little owl the US10 bag can take A4 easily enough and I assume the folder is no bigger than that. I remember you have the evotech bungs. I was hoping to get a measurement of the engine bolt that was replaced by the evotech bolt. Do you have it to hand by any chance?

It's a small black folder like you get with a car. I didn't get one of those fancy leather ones. Glad I took the van to collect. It never would have crossed my mind I would have needed to carry anything.

I had an Arai VX7 GP with KTM on it and in Orange, white and black. Didn't really go with the DUC. The Shoe is a fantastic helmet. I have the Air GT it's super quiet. Highly recommend it. Especially as it has a built in sun visor just like the AGV ones do now.

If anyone is interested in swopping their Black ICON seat for my Black and Yellow FT one then let me know. TONY?

Shame as would have been nice if it was the fancy thing rather than a black folder.I hope it says Ducati on it at least ;)

Yes it does. Mike does a good job prepping the bike. Bit stingey on the petrol though :bootyshake:
