Ducati 620i and 1098s

My bike his bike

The weather is getting pretty hot. I went out riding with Marzouq today and I took the picture above when we stopped for ice cream. Later we stopped at Starbucks in Marina for some icy frappuccinos.

I was chatting with a friend the other day who is a Harley rider when I noticed something interesting. When Harley riders upgrade their bikes they usually end up making them a lot heavier since all the chrome and accessories add weight to the bike. When sports bike riders upgrade their bikes they usually end up making them lighter since most of the parts weigh less then the stock ones. We are like complete opposites.

Limited Edition Bimota Delirio Azzurra

Post by Mark

bimota

I was at the Ducati dealer yesterday, TriStar and they had a limited edition Bimota bike on display. There are only 23 of them in the world and they were made as a tribute to the Italian soccer team for winning the World Cup.

I was kidding around with my friend who works there telling him how easy it would be to make this bike look like a tribute to the Kuwaiti soccer team by editing the Italian flag to make it look like a Kuwaiti one. When he heard that he took me to the rear of the bike where it turns out there was something that already looked like a Kuwaiti flag! I found that pretty funny.

Here is another better picture of the bike [Picture]

Not only Marzouq can get his picture taken while riding his bike. Today morning a friend of mine took this picture of me while I was riding in to work.

First ride with Termi exhausts

Post by Mark

ducati monster termignoni raised carbon

Just came back from my morning ride awhile ago and the new exhausts sound ridiculous! They are unbelievably good!! Its like a completely different bike, they are loud, mean and look much better then the stock ones. The whole bike feels lighter since the new carbon exhausts are much much lighter then the old aluminum ones. Anyway below I have pictures of the bike with the new exhausts and front fairing. If you want to see how the bike looked like before click [Here]

Termignoni Exhausts ROCK!

Post by Mark

I got my bike back today with the new exhausts installed. The bike looks a lot cooler now with the new raised exhausts and it sounds really incredible. I recorded the sound of the stock exhausts and new Termignoni ones and created a small clip which I uploaded to YouTube. I figured it would be useful in case a Ducati rider somewhere in the world wants to know how the bike sounds with the Termignoni exhausts. I will take pictures tomorrow of the bike when I go riding and post them here also.

Starscream

Post by Mark

my bike on the truck

Yesterday night Tristar came and picked up my bike so they could install my new slip-ons. While the bike was being put on the truck I realized I still haven’t come up with a name for the bike. So after some thinking I have decided to call my bike Starscream.

Termignoni Exhaust Pipes

Post by Mark

termignoni

Marzouq just posted about the great service he has been having with Tristar so I figured I would post about what happened with me. Last Saturday I passed by and ordered Termignoni carbon racing silencers for my motorbike and I was told I would receive them in 2 to 3 weeks. Yesterday I got a phone call telling me to pass by and pick up my silencers since they had arrived! I called the Tristar garage today morning so that tomorrow they can pass by and pick up my bike so they can install the silencers. Really great service. Also I found out that anyone can join their bike club not only people who purchased bikes from them, so if you are a biker and are looking for weekly activities give them a call.

Kuwait BMW Motorcycle Club

Post by Mark

BMW Club

The Kuwait BMW Motorcycle Club launched their website a few days ago. The club is run by TriStar and is open to Ducati riders also since at the moment there is no Ducati club in Kuwait. I think its actually open to all riders no matter what brand of bike you have. They usually have weekly rides and events so its a pretty active club. The site is blog like with a forum that currently has no activity but overall the site does have potential. Hopefully it gets updated often and riders start participating in their forum. [Link]
