I've heard, mostly from british magazines, that the 916 was one of the greatest bikes ever made. What makes em so special or great? I can't reallyl find many articles on the 916....:confused:

I think the feeling with the 916,was that the engine output matched the chassis stiffness perfectly.(I've read mags say that the 996 engine was too much for the frame.)
That fact that the 916 is easily one of the most sexy bikes ever made doesn't hurt either.
The price and the ridiculous service costs really make it much less attractive though

DUCATI 916's Rock

Ever notice that Ducati bikes never copy other bikes. Any one have a frame like a Duck? Others are doing their best to copy the exhaust but can't. Fire up a 748-916-996-998 do they sound like a R6-954-GSXR, no way! Be warned - if you don't ride a Duck now-don't start now- 'cause that's all you will want to ride.:drool:

Hey, how's it going? Have you talked with any of the FBF guys lately?

I wish they would get back into the racing scene Ducati or not.

I love that picture 748!!!!

I love how people cry like a 2 year old with a skinned knee around here when they get picked on.

Hey Ferracci-boy: Grow a backbone. When you move out of your parent's basement you'll learn what the real world is like. If your still mad about me busting on you let it go, life's too short.

Ah yes, I love to receive "life threats" from someone 17 years younger than me. Listen here big shot, I have served my country for twenty years and raised 2 children. You're still young enough to think you still know it all. oohh, a house - I'm impressed. The next time you want to impress me and everyone here, try using a vocabulary - vulgarity only proves your ignorance. What is your issue?
