You are definately hauling in an interesting new iron. Be sort of nice if the wife & you were riding the two bikes ---make some people take a 2nd look.

Didn't get bike yet but looks like it's still a go for tomorrow!
It's actually a 1999 model. Number 96 of 500. Man I can't wait!
Here's a few of the goodies it comes with:

Termignoni exhaust
Light weight fly wheel
Light weight valve pulleys
BRAND NEW Michilen Pilots
Rear fender elimator and led signals.
Oh yea it's red!
Billet adjustable levers
Sargent seat
Did I mention it's red?
35 LBS lighter than the standard 996
140 hp. (Prolly not in Colorado though)
Lots of Ducati chrome (carbon fibre)
Oh and only 2200 miles!

What to do with 900SS is still up in the air.

Man life is good. Still hoping the guy doesn't change his mind though.

A few ccs short of a full litre.
