Ok guys , thanks for the help in deciding.
Ducati sold & gone today at about 3.00, ordered this by 3.15  :046:
Collecting on Sunday, a nice little 130 mile drive back home.

Welcome to the Red side Lighty, I'm suppressed you did not go to Pidcocks.
After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

Picked up my new bike today & christened it by riding 165 miles back to Derbyshire, chasing my son most of the way in the Nomad.
I love the bike, it's better than I imagined, can't wait to get the rev limiter raised .
Lind Motorad in Norwich were great & I got a full tank of fuel which helps when in a strange place, didn't get all the way back, but prob would have just made it.
