Hey Ducati888

It seems you are still missing your previous bike 😉

I would have met you with a great pleasure but I am not in Huntingdon anymore.

I lived there for 3 months in 1999 for an internship at Cellbond. I really enjoyed it. I still have in mind names of old colleagues and friends but they probably have moved out.

Hey ducati888!  Hello, good morning and a very warm  :401: to the net's best for all things Street Triple!

It's good to hear that the switch from the racing crouch has brought you some physical and psychological comfort!   I doubt very much that you'll be short-changed on the grin factor over the 888, to be honest - there is something wholly addictive about the Street Triple's 'real world' capabilities and, to quote a much over-used term, its 'accessibility'.

It would be nice if, when this pandemic crap is done with us, we could all arrange some local meets of likeminded fellow Striplers, however informal that may be.   Definitely a thought to "throw out there"!

Enjoy that bike, ride safe, stay well!


Regards,

Adie

Apologies -looks like this got missed. 

Have you managed to sort out the problem, yet?  If you create an account in the 'PHOTOS GALLERY' you can upload mages of up to 6 meg. each to there and from there into your post.  It's a bit of a faff but fairly straightforward - must be, I've managed it!!

Let us know how you get on - we need to see the bike!  :001:

Regards,

Adie
