Well as per the title, I set of home from work last Tuesday, and somewhere along the way my oil filter started leaking and I arrived home to find the back of my bike looking like this.

Yes, I'm very lucky I didn't end up under a bus or in the hospital or worse.

That filter was 8 months old!!!!!!! FFS.

I had noticed the rear brake had stopped doing anything and what with the rear pads being 2 days old I did find that a bit odd and was going to have a look as soon as I got home, took me a nano second to see the problem.

WoW, good to km\now you're Okay.
now, lot's of degreaser to keep bike clean.
after my first oil/filter change(OEM Ducati oil filter) at 620miles, it started leaking at 900miles, did tighten the filter but still leaking, re-tighten, keep leaking, Did replace the filter with a new Hiflo filter and no more leaks up to 2,650 miles.
