New guy who wants to buy

Hey everyone,

I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a few months now and the only bikes I've found that I have been interested in have been bought out from under me. Had a few different bikes over the years and recently decided I want to get a Ducati as a track toy/occasional rider.

I figured I might as well join and try this approach to finding one too! The bike I'm looking for is a later year 749S mono, in red preferably. There seems to be a huge range of asking prices when they do come up, but lately you can't even FIND one for sale it seems.

I hope I can join the group soon and see what all the fuss is about!

I was also looking for a 749/999 for quite a while but didn't have much luck. They are getting harder to find and the nicer ones can go for a lot of money. I ended up buying a 1199 panigale for a decent price and don't regret the purchase so far. The older Ducati's usually need new belts etc so I opted out of going that route. Good luck with your search!

There are plenty of 999 out there, but the 749 is definitely getting rare, which only makes me think it's a good decision to grab one sooner rather than later. The later bikes, and earlier, have one thing I can't stand... single sided swingarm. I don't know why but I have never liked the looks.

I'm sure one will pop up, I've made offers on two and both already had a deposit before they received mine...
