Hi guys (& gals),

I'm new to this forum but not to bike forums in general. I'm a regular contributor to ducati.ms, ducati-superbikes.com, sportbikeforum.net & r1-forum.com (not so much these days).

I've been living in Thailand for over ten years and finally got myself a very nice second hand 2004 999S / legal green book with all taxes paid. My last bike was a 2004 Yamaha YZF-R1 Euro spec, which I sold last year in the Middle East.

I wouldn't mind wearing my Ducati shirts but in this present political climate, I don't want to get shot. WTF

Anyway, I hope you like the pictures of my new purchase and yes those are a bags of rice in the background of one or two photos. A call the rice in this case, poor man's desiccate Laughing Out Loud

Cheers all,
Warp Thumbup

Hi Warp,

Welcome to our forum, hope you will have a good time. For wearing your Ducati shirt, I can fully understand you – I myself have a 1198S and have a red suit (okay with a bit of white) still no fun riding that currently downtown.

Anyway hope they fix the crisis in Bangkok soon, I start having problems sitting still...Thai Bike
