Saw a Beautiful Bike Today

Post by fightingpantah » Tue Apr 13, 2010 3:09 pm

On the tram, going to work, Autumn in Melbourne, going down Lygon Street.

Heard a noise - that sounds nice - could only be a Ducati.

Checked it out and there was a beautiful Black and Yellow I think 900 GTS late 70's.

I'm not an expert but thats what it looked like - absolutely gorgeous - and the sound of the bevel.

If the owner is a member of the forum - thank you - you have left me with a smile on my dial all day.

Cant wait to get the Pantah back on the road and i am convinved that the black and yellow will look awesome.

Catch ya

I Wish there were bikes like that just riding around the streets here.. but there is nothing. The odd old Triumph, but no old Ducatis, Lucky You!!

I was making that very same sound (Conti's) on the streets of Louisville, Kentucky. It put a smile on my face too!
I am finally riding my 1978 900GTS, the weather here is great in preparation for the Kentucky Derby and I will use every excuse to Ride!

On Thursday just gone I was heading up the coast and going through Lismore a guy passed me on a green frame SS.....just magical!!!....then another 100klm up the road in Murwillumbah a black and gold Darmah went passed me.....another glorious moment. Made me envious as my Darmah is still apart waiting for its heads to return from the engineer.
