Hey wassup?

I'm pretty excited, I went and test rode it back when the owner was asking $5500 for it. Apparently there aren't many peeps out there interested in the older Ducs

Same here, I gotta work again in 6 hours, just got done with an 8hr shift too have you seen No Country For Old Men? If so, the avatar should scare you!

I'm selling/trading it. If I can get cash, cash + goodies, or trade it straight up for something I'd be happy. I'm just sick of the 600rr, its quick, but it looks like 90% of bikes out there and it bores me..

Ouch, not taking a nap? Nope, and don't need to see it, it's scary as is!

Ah, I seeeeeee! Makes sense, and that way you'll still have the fun of having a bike. Hope the trade goes through!

Yeah I'll fall asleep in a bit, probably wake up with the keyboard imprinted on my face

And yeah, I'd miss having a sportbike for sure. I still have a cruiser I inherited from my dad, but its not the same thrill that sportbikes deliver

Eww! I'm sure it won't appreciate the drool, or eye boogies. Poor keyboard. Tragic situation.

Mhms, so I've heard, and can imagine. I'd kill myself on either though, so sticking with the car.

I don't drool!
I'll probably die on them too, but hopefully that waits a couple years

G'night fest, I leave you with this cute picture of kittens!

You sure? Just a couple years? I've been telling Chad my death is very imminent, but he won't seem to believe me.


Good night, and your picture wins.

I figure I'll probably continue breaking bones and getting concussions for a while, then I'll hit the jackpot

And of course it wins, who doesn't like kittens???

Just depends on the item being ordered, direction of the wind, and phase of the moon. I tried to order fogs from them when I bought my car. The item was supposedly listed as in-stock when I placed my order. Two weeks later, I still hadn't received my package, nor heard from DDM. I called them, and that's when they decided to tell me that it had been out of stock, but that it had come in and was shipping the next day. It never shipped. Two more weeks went by with no package on my doorstep, so I called back out of frustration and canceled my order. I also had to request that they email me my invoice twice, since it didn't arrive automatically as is typically the case. Totally unacceptable lack of communication.

That said, down the road I had to order a 2nd pair of fogs, and the eBay vendor I wound up purchasing my last pair from no longer carried the ones I wanted. Back to DDM for round 2... Turns out that my 2nd ordering experience was completely fine. It didn't take longer than a week to get them, and communication was fine. Go figure.

Now I'm on my 3rd purchase with DDM. I just ordered a pair of clear tails from them (they're on sale now for $55, in case any of you are on the fence). I placed my order very late on 11/17, and after one full business day, my order status is still listed as "processing". Not a big deal, yet.

Yeah, the DDM tails are the Eagle Eye brand, which are supposedly have much higher quality gaskets than the Depos that they carried before.

Didn't know that, interesting.


Also, those wheel deals are awesome! I would drop the money for these in a heartbeat if I didn't have wheels already, not that mine are great.
