I don’t even know what made it happen, but yesterday I found myself looking for a clean Ducati 749 Dark for sale.
I can’t buy a new motorcycle, I know that, and yet there I was wondering if maybe I didn’t need a Dark version and maybe a red one would be OK.
This really is becoming the motorcycle that someday I must own. I wrote about this bike almost three years ago claiming it to be the coolest bike. I still stand by that, it’s a great bike and in my mind the perfect sport bike. Vtwins are great street engines and I still don’t think I need a bike that makes crazy horse power, I get in plenty of trouble with the 70ish I have now, I can’t imagine needing more than 100 riding by myself on a canyon carving machine like this.
Sadly as the years go by it gets harder and harder to find a good clean version. Hopefully I’ll get lucky and one will find me.
