I can barely believe this but having done a couple of average ride outs this thing is crippling me. I'm old, overweight and must have been dreaming that it would be OK.

So I'm going to try and sell it being a good time of year and find something comfier.

Nov 06 749 Dark - one of the last made with the later R swingarm. Asking price includes rare custom made single seat cowl and lots of Ducati Performance carbon bits.

Good condition for its age. Has the usual Ducati crack in the clocks, small scratch in the tail unit and a few age related marks. Must be seen really.

Comprehensive service history as follows.

Nov 06 - PDI
Dec 07 - Service @ 3267 miles
Oct 09 - Service / Belt change @ 5176 miles
May 12 - Service / Valves check / Belt change @ 6862 miles
Mar 16 - Service / Belt change @ 8830 miles
Sep 17 - Service / new Regulator Rectifier / new battery / new brake pads @ 9047 miles
Mar 18 - Service / Belt change @ 9087 miles

MOT due Mar 19
New Pirelli Diablo 2 tyres fitted for MOT
Currently on 9200 miles

Bike is great, nothing wrong with it. 

Ninja price £3995

Good news. What bike next then?

Did a Ninja buy it?

Couldn't think of anything to say about the original post that didn't look like I was trying to be smart.

MOzZereLLa

I didn't mean to reply to my shitty (but unsurprising) for sale thread. Just anything in general on here.

No, a ninja didn't buy it. I actually sold it via Facebook. Didn't think that worked as a general rule but no stress hassle free.

Wasn't sure about selling it to be honest but I did make a bit of profit.

I'd love a 790 but not sure about the cost.

What happened to the retro considerations?

MOzZereLLa

I have no idea what I want.

To be honest - I might just buy a 790, get it registered on cheap private plate and try and convince Mrs MOz it's a used bike 🙈

Sounds like a good plan 👍🏻

Written in the stars. Do it ✔️

I was very impressed with the 790 at the show. Looked like a fun package...103bhp is plenty to have fun in the B roads and use it to its potential.
Just do it.

Risky, could look like you are a Marc Marquez fan.

Yes. Was thinking that.

Just like my old job had the same number as loser Jorge.

for what you want and will use it for just get a Street Triple R (whatever vintage you can afford/fancy) and enjoy. You've had one before, you know how much fun they are and it won't cripple you like a sports bike.

Looked at them - still lots of cash and no bargains out there. Time not on my side with just 2 months until aim away so wanted something pretty quick therefore.....
