and i don't think you can just cancel an appointment and have it immediately available if that's what you're thinking..
you could, if you call in and request it.

I had two time slots (prs + appointment I made online).

I passed it thru prs and was able to get give away my appointment.

Only if your bike is under 250 cc.

Google Greg Moore

Other option is Pitt Meadows Track Days.

Wife and son are out of town for the weekend. Woke up early to get a nice long weekend ride in only to find my rear flat with a screw in it.......FML. Will try and get it into Holeshot or International this morning but odds of getting it fixed today are frickin slim which means no bike the rest of the weekend when I have the whole weekend to myself.....

So i got to test ride my first ever Ducati. it's very fast & powerful but it's not something that i'd have as an everyday bike.

Review: 2010 Ducati 1098 Streetfighter

Quote:
Ducati is to motorcycles as what Ferrari is to cars. Or at least that’s what we are led to believe. But is this true? Read on and find out.

Performance – Ducati is known for their V-twin Desmodromic engines that they’ve produced since the 1980s. The 1098cc V-twin desmo engine in this streetfighter is essentially the same but with a few modern upgrades. In case you’re wondering, a desmodromic engine utilizes two different camshaft profiles to open and close a single valve whereas in a normal engine, one camshaft profile and a spring are used to open and close one valve. Without getting into too much detail, the main advantage of this system is to prevent “valve float” at higher rpms. Back to the 1098, this engine produces 155hp and 85 lb-ft of torque but unlike any other Japanese or European motorcycle, the power feels instant and unending. Above 4000 rpms, the acceleration is instantaneous and the engine does not hesitate one bit. It has so much power that as the rpms climb to the rev-limit of 11,000 rpms, it gets harder to stay on the bike if you’re not bracing yourself. The downfall to the V-twin is that below approximately 4000 rpms the engine is very jerky and it makes for very difficult slow speed maneuvering. Further adding to the difficulty of slow speed maneuvering is the clutch. The dry multi-plate clutch does not allow for a lot of slippage when setting off which in turn can cause stumbling or stalling off the line.

While slow speed maneuvering is a bit tricky, high speed maneuvering is very good. The V-twin engine layout makes for a narrow frame and allows the bike to transition from left to right very quickly. The suspension is a bit on the stiff side for daily city riding but for canyon carving it is set up to inspire confidence through corners. But by far the best handling feature of this bike are the Brembo monobloc calipers. They are powerful yet also precise and delicate to allow for modulation of the brake lever during braking.

Comfort – A streetfighter layout is designed to be more ergonomically comfortable for the rider on the street, as the name implies. While this 1098 is more comfortable than other Ducati sportbike models, it is still considered an aggressive seating position when compared with its Japanese counterparts. It is not a fully upright riding position but a blend between sportbike and Japanese streetfighter. The foot pegs are positioned lower than on a sportbike but the taller seat position means that shorter riders will have difficulty reaching the ground with the heels of their feet. Also the vibrations from the engine get translated into the handle bars which can make for sore hands after a long period of time riding.

Odds and Ends – As streetfighters go this is one of the most beautiful on sale today. It has just enough bodywork to continue the lines from the front to the back and just the right amount of exposed drivetrain to keep wondering eyes interested. You can say that the back of the bike is the most interesting part due to the single sided swingarm and the large dual Termignoni exhaust mufflers. Speaking of the exhaust, it is by far the loudest I’ve ever heard on a motorcycle. It’s not so bad when riding the bike because the noise is behind you but when riding behind the bike in a group, it sounds and feels like the exhaust can start earthquakes.

So back to the original question, is a Ducati like a Ferrari? In many ways it is. They’re powerful, beautiful, expensive, and exotic machines but they are not vehicles that you’d want to use on a daily basis.

Thank you to the owner of this motorcycle for the opportunity to test ride it and photograph it.

my bikes got some smoked led turn signals in the back of my f4i (they're aftermarket). I want to try and clear them out so they can look brighter. What do you guys think would be the best way to do it, if its even possible?

I was nervous as hell at first cause my license expires in 2 weeks and had I failed I would have had to redo everything. It helped that the examiner was pretty hot

Local kickstarter. Looks pretty cool, you could probably DIY for much cheaper since none of those things are proprietary.

Cool features all crammed into a helmet but I'm not a fan of taking focus off the road.

I've seen that before and its a very cool product but I feel like they're trying to fix a problem that isn't there.

Thats just the way I'm looking at it though...

Like iceboi said keep eyes and attention on the road.

GPS would be neat if you could toggle the video on/off easily but leave the sound directions on. Rearview camera sounds like a good idea, even better if they could implement a warning system if it thinks you're about to be hit from behind. HUD sounds cool since it'll keep your head up more methinks.

^i actually thought the rearview camera was rather useless, takes up a huge chunk of your view (even though its transparent, its a distraction), and that's what mirrors are for

a warning system like you said would be way more useful, like the kind they use in cars that apply your brakes for you, only this one will alert you of fast approaching traffic from behind
