Bought my first Ducati a couple weeks ago Picked up a standard 2001 748s. She’s fairly tidy, do for now at least but I’ll do a full tear down, clean and refit over winter. So far Ive found it a little lacking on the open roads, but I suppose it wasnt designed for that…the cornering though, love it! Nothing really planned for mods to be honest…although I have ordered an A&R Motorsport baffle kit (was going to go for carbon Termi’s…but other projects are nibbling at my funds at present).
Ouch…four days for my thread to get approval? Good job I dont have any urgent questions
Been making full use of the search function over the weekend though
All the moderators are busy people and sometimes this causes a delay.
Once you have 10 approved posts the need for moderation goes away. Bear with us as it is an unfortunate requirement to keep those sneeky spammers out
I too have a standard 748 and live near Donington Park.
Hello and welcome to Ducati ownership and DOC GB!
I had a 748, loved it but it was stolen, welcome and look forward to hearing more about it
Hello , hope you enjoy your new toy. I was amazed at how much fun you can have at lower speeds when i switched from a ZX9r to a Monster.
Have fun , Tosh
Cheers for the welcomes
Just been chatting with a guy called Rich on the club stand at Donington…I picked up some leaflets then realised I’d actually already joined the forum
My Duke is stuck out in the main car park Got my old Gixxer on a club stand here though.
748 has been going great. Done just over a 1000 miles now, running sweet. Find it really comfy too…which came as a surprise after hearing various stories of an extreme riding position. Did a 360mile round trip to the coast last Monday with ease, great ride out.
That’s all great to hear, Stu. Club stand looks great at Donington - Richy has done the club proud
Yeah looks good! I’ll get some pics later when I go back up…left the GSXR up there last night, not looking forward to the ride home in this weather tbh

A quick pic I took on the way out…I’ll sort some others later. Ive had to download a photobucket app as the forum uploader wont allow any decent sized pics on here…so fingers crossed I’ve done it right and you can see the pic. Is that pic size a limitation set in place for newbies, that will automatically lift once Ive past 10 posts?
Good weekend at Dono…I did a VERY steady three parade laps in the rain on the old GSXR…gonna take a week of cleaning to correct, but was worth it. Apparently Kevin Schwantz’s wife had her pic taken with my bike But I missed it as the bike was at the show whilst I was at home in bed…dammit.
Seems I linked the wrong pic…I’ll try again later
