    It can be ridden either, not as ride it like you stole it Superduke 990. I should say it has all the toys and I haven’t topped out with it yet, so many rider modes at the press of a button.

    The SD was probably getting too much for me as I think my legs have shrunk along with my muscles,I’m 63 next month. The 790 is a dream to ride,so is the 690.

    Never got the chance to ride all the old bikes,parents put their foot down when I was 16, so I got into boats and ended up ski racing at 65mph. o_O

    My first bike was a Honda (XL250s).

    I tour with a local Honda dealer and always get the piss taken ‘cos I ride a Ducati!

    Traded my rd250 for a dt 400 excellent fun bike lacked top end been stuck between grin factor and sensible ever since tdr 250 was a lot faster and crossed over well compared to my 950sm but both have serious fun factor and power
