Member Info: Currently living in Canberra, Australia (after another 3 years in Tokyo, Japan without wheels) and enjoying it. Still have the 1976 Ducati 750ss I purchased new in 76. Just completed a cosmetic makeover - new paint and decals, a good cleanup and fixing a number of small problems. Back on the road in August 2007. In the past I have owned and loved the following bikes: Hodaka Ace 100B+ Yamaha DT3 Montesa 250 Enduro Montesa 250 Cappra MX Ossa 250 trials Honda VF1000F Ducati 250 Desmo Ducati 450 Mk3 Currently looking after a BMWR1200ST - interesting ride for a Duke person. Took a lot of getting used to.

Info: Purchased new from Ambassador Motorcycles in Canberra. Came with an odd set of options. 40mm carbs, dual seat and LaFranconi mufflers. Still has the 40mm carbs and dual seat but has Staintune Conti replicas - the Contis I got from my brother and my headers and crossover were used to make the original Staintune patterns. Some pics show some other stainless mufflers purchased early on but replaced
 
 Past:
1984 Honda VF 1000 (Interceptor)

Info: Purchased while on posting in Japan. It was the only over 750 Honda in Japan that had never been exported and re-imported. This photo taken in Yokohama where I was living then. Used for commutes to Tokyo, weekend rides and touring in Japan. The only Honda to take part in the Tokyo Ducati club weekend rides. A good bike with lots of everything but not a Duke.

Info: My first bike. Great fun and a good learner´s bike. Came with the rear sprocket overlay for off-road use. Pretty strong and reliable. Simple to maintain - probably still going somewhere.
