I Ride: 2000 996s
Hello from Pittsburgh, PA

I came across the forum when researching a question about my bike, a 2000 996s. My wife backed into it a few weeks ago and I've been repairing the (thankfully) minor damage. I found everything I needed to know, so thanks folks!

This is my first Ducati. I was looking for a Sport Classic back in 2011 after having gone without a bike for a couple of years. When I found the near-mint 996 with less than 2000 miles on it for essentially the same price or less than a used Sport Classic my mind was made up.

I've had a few bikes over the years, most notably a 1995 Honda VFR750 (loved that bike!) and a 2000 Suzuki SV650 that I bought wrecked and made into a track bike. It was the perfect bike for that. The twin cylinder engine really made me want a Duc.
