    Default Good morning and Hi from Perth

    Hi all,
    My name is Dave and I live in Perth. I am obviously going through the best midlife crisis and just passed my bike test this year in July. Similarly I am new to the world of Ducati and started with a wee Monster 797 and just getting to grips with it all. Looking forward to meeting and learning from you all out there.

    So I guess next round is on me?

    Dave.

    Welcome Dave!

    I had a similar mid-life epiphany 10 years ago, got my bike licence, bought a Monster and joined in with the crazies on here. Now on my third (696,1100Evo,821) and have absolutely loved it. See you out there sometime.

    Pete.

    Welcome to the nut hooooooose.

    If I was you I would buy a Scooter & join the Vespa club.
    They are not a nice bunch on DUN or the SDC.

    Hopefully see you out and about at the SDC events. If you have not joined up please do so.

    Great bunch.

    Hi Dave and welcome to DUN. Sorry to hear about your mid-life crisis, I hope you get over your it soon
    It seems to have had it's good points though - you bought a Ducati

    Old enough to know better, young enough not to care

    Midlife crisis's are useful. As I can't be certain of the exact midpoint, I've always arranged to have one at least yearly. More people should do so

    Welcome Dave.

    It's strange when you first ride a Ducati after years of more eastern things and going round corners seems just natural rather than forced...

    See, going round the bend is normal

    Welcome to the mad house!
    In Theory, Practice and Theory are the same. In Practice they are different.
