Ducati Desmo

Can't believe I saw someone riding this bike on Friday in downtown.
Is it someone on this board? Pretty chilly day to ride.

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

it's the second one that I have seen. Saw the first one during the riding season with a small guy riding it. You can not mistake a 1098 and a desmo. Ram air is in the middle, paint is different and the sound is very different.
