Duckhunter Lmao ! Never was big on Camo.

The keys... the box of blanks is still sitting next to my key cutter.

The Stig Duckhunter? I imagine a guy with a duck whistle in camouflage.

Speaking of DHC, when are you going to make some 100% carbon ignition keys for us (Or at least metal ones with a carbon RC51 knob)?

Your's is the sorted example I could imagine riding. Maybe someday & likewise, if you want to try out a sorted SP2. Shame there's a biiiig pond between each of us with our bikes!

And of course, welcome to the forum Millsp1.

The Stig 996's are cheap now and I recently begun to feel tempted, but then I remembered the maintenance and build quality. My brother's 916 has cost him a lot, incl. an engine rebuild. Meh, not for me. It's why I bought an SP instead!

I see Aprilias cheaply too, better than a Ducati but parts availability, etc. would bug me and they're not so pretty in my eyes.

The SP's have all I need. Someday I'd like to ride a sorted SP1 for a day so I can feel the difference.

BritRC Welcome Davie,

Some great scenery up there, just of late it seems a snow mobile would be the best way to appreciate it.

Nice to see another UK member.

Great bunch on here, just watch out for Duckhunter he's our resident pusher, and he will get you hooked on a carbon habit before you know what's happened.

Millsp1 Thanks for the welcome, the sp2 is just that bit smoother & nicer to ride than the sp1, but the sp1 was the most invigorating ride on 2 wheels, should never have sold the sp1 but an 04 plate RSVR was on offer, excellent bike, then a 1999 Ducati 996 which I thought was going to self destruct every time I went out, the sp2's a keeper.

Once again Cheers

The Stig Welcome. Although I only went to Scotland once for a week some 25 years ago, it remains indelibly beautiful in my mind. A great place to own an SP, assuming there's no danger of getting caught enjoying it fully.

Would also be interested to hear what your experiences are of SP1 & SP2 compared.

There's a lot of knowledge & enthusiasm for SP's here, but few have owned both SP1 & SP2. Post pics when you can too please.
