    Cool I love/hate this pig!!!

    Well, after some I decided to pick up the prettiest bike I could find, been eye ballin these for some time and waiting for the right setup before I scooped one up. Tell you the truth I'll prob end up selling it in a year but for now I'll enjoy it or at the very least take some cool pics with it. Picked up a 2013 Ducati 1199S and fuck my life, this thing has more electronics than our Porsche or the Audi. Comes with ABS, Traction Control, Electronic Suspension front and rear, quick shift, electronic engine braking crap and some other shit. Thing is a beast with 195HP but per usual my love hate relationships with V-Twins continues.

    Bike came set up in GP shift, I HATE GP shift... woodcraft rear-sets so i get down to business to flip the linkage - yeah that turned into a 5 hour job that resulted in a fuck ton of assemblies and reassembles and tools purchased from home depot because you know, apartment living in CA. 5 hours later and a shit load of googling and i come to find out Woodcraft makes a DIFFERENT rear-set for GP shift vs regular, you cant just flip shit like in the good'ol days. So after I reassemble everything BACK to how I got the bike I take her out for spin #2... and 2 miles down the road im stuck in 1st because 2, NOT ONE, but two fucking bolts back out half way and I cant shift. So now I have to buy new rear-sets because I hate stock and I will not learn GP shift - do the entire assembly again and then kick the bike over. I fucking hate this thing already. But shes pretty...

    Are those chicken strips really that big or is it just the camera angle?
