All the Ducati's made the 1290SDR possible!

The 899 is a sweet bike all over. The 848 was damn nice too! The only thing was once the road opened up you tended to get left in the dust. At least when we used to ride with liter bikes.  I'll bet the 899 is a whole lot easier to ride over Tantalus than an 1199/1299. But maybe not easier than my 1000R.   Evil  Dolph

No modification goes unpunished. Memento mori.  Good people drink good beer.  Things happen pretty fast at high speeds.

It's all up to your will level, your thrill level and your skill level.  Everything else is just fluff.

I like the sounds of that! Evil  A few mods and she should be just about perfect for my liking.   Grin

And the sugar fountain fairy swore so hard when she came to super-size that stale hope soybean; liiiike a homeless German woman. Who is this super-sizing spirit-crushing femme? And tell her I'll break a tree root up in her shrimp.

Being faster than you thought possible…it feels good. No, screw that—it feels like shotgunning a gallon of adrenaline and chasing it with an all-night orgy aboard a burning Viking boat.

I was merely offering up the premise that since the S1000R is easier to ride over Tantalus than my old 848 that it might well be easier than the 899 too. Since I have not been on an 899 I couldn't say for sure.  Not throwing down any gauntlets or anything. Seth was right, right on my tail the whole way the one time we rode up there.  Dolph

I have never truly taken an 848 out for a ride but the little bit I have, I think the 899 feels better.
