Lets see if there is love for the 2nd gens, I bought her in 2007 off of Craigslist with just the slip on and the hid kit and 11,000 miles, the rest is all me. She was my daily driver for almost a year (thank god for a mild winter that year) and current mileage is just under 50k. She has never left me stranded while at the same time giving some of the best experiences you can have in on and around bikes. Currently debating a newer bike but I just can't justify it when this one is exactly how I want it minus a set of minty lightweight wheels. But here she is my road bitch:

Reason: forgot intro
My father bought this bike brand new back in 92. Over the years growing up we built this bike, i consider it a family heirloom and it is now mine. Alot of blood, sweat and tears went into this bike. We did almost all of the work except for the frame, paint and engine.
The engine and frame mods were done by Guy Martin in Montreal, Canada. HE owns MBP Ducati.
The engine was built as he was pioneering his own design of collets that increased the valve adjustment increments significantly.
He use to build alot of the race engines for the factory AMA Ducati race teams which are no longer in the series.
The engine has been bored out, ported and polished, crank has been lightened, 2 sparkplugs per cylinder as per the stock 1 per cylinder and a lot of other things that would take a lot of brainstorming to remember. i have all the documentation on it but couldn't find it for this wright up. It has aprox 114hp at the rear wheel which is up from the stock of about 90.
The frame has had extra bracing and has been nickel plated. The rear shock was offset on the swingarm.
Full floating Brembo Rotors
Aftermarket Brembo Calipers Front and Back

Aftermarket clip ons
Stm Dry slipper clutch
Stainless steel braided brakelines front and rear
