Ducati Superleggera Owner Roll Call!
 
There's only 500 of you out there... which means I want to see 500 pictures of triple trees showcasing your limited edition number.

For those lucky 500, post up a picture showing off your Superleggera and please include a picture of the triple tree so we can see what limited number you have!

For those unlucky 956,207,892,392 Ducati riders, this is your mission... in the event you see an ultra rare Superleggera, please take 2 pictures, one of the almighty bike and one of the triple tree cover so we can see what limited number we don't have!

This should be a fun thread! :cool:

a lot of owners don't mind you taking pics of their bike, but some prefer that the triple tree number is /not/ taken. . I would suggest you get permission from the owner before leaning over and taking the picture and posting it. . I know this to be the case with several numbered bikes in previous generations. So not something I would encourage you to do unless you have the owners permission. Otherwise you're just asking for Ducati owners to be more difficult in the future about not having pictures taken period.

Aaah interesting... I was not aware of this. In my earlier years, I had a numbered 996SPS (#17 on the triple tree) and I never even thought about worrying about the number.

Would it be best to remove the request for the triple tree picture?

FYI - I only posted that triple tree pic because a fellow owner posted that pic on our Ducati 1199 Facebook Page, so I assumed it was fair game.

Thoughts?

Are you requesting people to post pictures they took of a triple, or only one that is their personal bike? If it is already posted anywhere, it is fair game - part of the rules of the internet lol

your bike - no big deal. . but asking people to just go up to someones bike whether they are looking or not and snapping a triple tree number and posting the picture along with identifying information in my book is - "not cool". . . It's a common courtesy type of thing. If I go up to someones bike, I would always ask whether I could take a picture before doing so (including the triple tree). I wouldn't just go up to someone's bike and without asking - snap a picture of someones triple tree and post it. . . That's almost akin to snapping a picture of the VIN and posting it - because both are identifying marks. And if you're going to post someone else's property with identifying marks, I think you should have permission before doing so.

I think that's a naive and frankly paranoid view of things... If the bike is parked in a public place then it is ..in my view..in the public domain..therefore I can take as many pictures of it as I wish... As long as I do not touch it..interfere with it in anyway then the owner has no rights to prevent me taking such images.... Of course I would ask if the owner was there...but do I have to?? No I do not...

As I said - some people have common courtesy, others don't. .

I can come up to your bike and touch and fawn all over it as long as I don't damage it as well. . Sure, you can do it but how courteous is it ?

No...You have no right to touch it... I specifically said that!!!

Sure it may be a means to identify a vehicle but who cares? Vin's are posted all over the net and so are license plates, yet people are extra paranoid about blocking that when posting photos. To me that is comical.

If the owner of each SL doesn't care, with or without permission, post up the photos...triples n all.
