    my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    hi all.. long time i didn't posted.. this summer for a reason i still ignore, all my attention went on two wheels machines, i bought two new bikes : a ducati 1098, a street legal cruise missile, and a honda Rune, for those who don't know the rune is a very rare bike produced to around 1300 pieces worldwide between 04 and 05, its a massive bike, 3 meters long (longest production bike) and it has a six cylinders 1800cc engine taken from the gold wing and reworked for more power and torque. its an amazing thing to look at, and to drive. here are some pictures, although they don't do justice they will give you an idea. this bike was only sold in the states, i was lucky enough to find a brand new one in arkansas, and i had to send a friend to buy it as it is forbiden to the dealers to export this bike.

    OFF TOPIC!! this week end i drove the Nissan GTR for two entire days. even tough at first i was truly and deeply impressed it just failed the test when i noticed that the gear box changes gear alone when it reaches the red line, for me this is unacceptable. that's a pitty because the car was truly ammazing , the power , the chassis, the speed of the tranny, etc.. everything is PERFECT, i will buy one in a second if they modify the gearbox software not to change gears alone. i felt it was like meeting a gorgeous top model, and after dinner she tells you she hates sex.. total turn off

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    Cool bud..the Ducati's awesome. You have any other pics of the Rune tho?

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    What a beast! The Ducati must be amazing though.

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    Very nice! But where is the pic of the Ducati? What colour? I would love a white one. Probably prefer it's little brother though.

    the 1098 doesn't come in white, only the 848 does. i had the choice of red, yellow or black

    LOL! just looking for a place to install a few tomahawks

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    Congratulations on the great bike purchases.

    I have never seen such an outrageous bike, love it.

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    That Honda Rune is awesome! It almost looks like it belongs in Mad Max, with a shotgun sticking out of the pillion. Sweet Ducati as well. I just hope you aren't riding around without a helmet

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    awesome bikes Dimitri. you sure seem to be a safe rider behind all that padding lol just joking . Love the Ducati and the Rune is a definite head turner. Congrats

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    Awesome! I prefer the ducati myself

    Re: my 2 new toys.. on two wheels..

    thanks all for the kind words. of course i never ride without a helmet, but i remove it for the picture.
    as for the paddings, i always wear them when we go on a speed ride.

    moogle: the ducati give more adrenaline rushes, but after 30 minutes all your body starts to hurt. on the rune you could go for hours.

    porschejockey: that's what everyone says when they see the bike in person: its going out of a mad max or a batman movie, in this picture you can see why; especially when those rear led lights are on
