Started riding in the 60ís have been lucky enough to have a couple Ducatiís over the years. Tracked my 851 Tricolore Kit bike and TT 2 in the past. have been riding vintage past 10 years Laverda SFC , BSA Golstar and others. Iím turning 68 yo time to go back to the track. Iíll be getting Ducati V 4 s in the spring.
The dream never dies.

Nice Ducati and exotic history and nice to have more old blokes on the forum I'm one also.
I like it when you pull your helmet off and some young guy goes "fuck"

Welcome and keep enjoying your track days.
Thanks from Cinders

Well done I'm not quite that old but over 60 we'll say forget everything from the past the V4 is a monster well disguised for street use.

After the running in;

Select Race with Dynamic power delivery, DSC to 1, DWC 2 or 1, DTC to Performance, and DES to Dynamic. And learn to hang on!
The first time I did the above and went to 13,500 - 14,000Rpm in 1-2-3 it was a Holy WTF is this thing. Enjoy and Welcome.

However I did try Street mode & reduced power for city cycle and gave it away as riding a bowl of custard absolutely horrid no power so I leave power on Dynamic much better
