Ducati newbie buying a V4

Hi all - nice forum!

I am a Brit living in N. California. I used to race TZ750s back win the 1970s in the UK and Isle of Man. Raced against some famous names like Joey and Michael Dunlop, Carl Fogarty, Ron Haslam. Anyway I did a couple of track days locally in 2016 on an old RSVR (first time on a track in 32 yrs) and had great fun. I did manage to bin it first time out due to some old road tires that were on the bike when I got it, (and a bit too much throttle off the apex) but I still bounce OK.

Thought I had hung up my leathers and the V4 came out so I thought I better try a full on 200hp bike while i am still able. I will be buying one in the next 2 weeks. Never even sat on a Duc before - thats OK, i am sure i will like it.

Will post some Ohlins and GP shift questions separately

Cheers all

i'm sure you will do fine you have bigger balls than most of us after all if you used to race Isle of Man.

Hollister isn't that far from Laguna Seca track

what a beautiful old bike those TZ750 were, do you still have it? everyone loves an old 2 banger, it would be worth a bomb now,enjoy the new Duc.
