Hello from Struggletown
« on: November 07, 2017, 09:00:00 AM »
I'm from Australia and live in a small city called Queanbeyan, affectionately known as Struggletown due to it's close proximity to our more 'affluent' (or should that be 'effluent') Capital City, Canberra.
My red 950 is now six months old with about 9500kms. It has the sports, touring, enduro and urban packs fitted together with the low seat, heated grips, led rear indicators, a Garmin Zumo GPS on the Ducati high mount and a shorter tinted screen.
Love the way it goes but a bit worried about how well it will fare on our often crappy roads. Having problems with the paint getting marked by bug splatter and wheels which seem to dent rather easily.

Mine too, bug city. Unfortunately it seems the bugs have etched into the red paint on the piece below the screen, I have a warranty claim in with Ducati, waiting to hear back from them.
