Hello all, I just picked up my White 899 on 27DEC13 and had several carbon pieces put on, like the key trim cover, the shock protector, and went ahead sprang on the CM smoked light kit. So happy so far it is my first Ducati coming over from Harley...

I recently served 14 years in the Army and purchased this as my medical retirement gift to myself. I have 4 wedge and deteriorating vertebrae and torn hip cartilage. However is the reason the Harley got sold and the Ducati got purchased. I happen to own my own Motorcycle Towing company and also do high end luxury and exotic vehicle transport. You can follow me here at www.facebook.com/MotorcycleResQueTeam

However my good friend of mine up in Dallas has the 1199 Tricolore and he has been dominating all the motorcycle towing up in Dallas. Marc from Motorcycle Tow Company is who got me into Duc dealer and hooked me up with probably the first 899 Sold in Dallas. I got my bike at European Cycles out of Plano, TX and Elvis Jr. has one more white one in stock. But overall extremely happy with my new 899....can't wait to hit up MotoGP and take a lap in Austin at the Circuit of the Americas come Spring.

@Tio - Not too sure I'm ready for that yet. This is only my 3rd bike and my 2nd sport bike (first was a 08 kawasaki vulcan 900 custom cruiser, traded that 2 months ago for my 08 kawasaki zzr600). The 899 is by far my favorite so far, even with only 17 miles on it!

With time, I might get on the track, but for now I'm content getting in some good rides on the tollway and turnpike here. Hopefully one day soon I'll have the confidence to do some track days. I'm not getting any younger!
