Not sure if this is unique to me but I recently came across a Ducati S2R 800, red with white off center stripe and I have to have it. Usually when buying bikes I read reviews, carefully weigh the pros and cons, test ride the bike and decide if it's going to fit well with my riding style and where I'm at skill wise.
Not so with this Ducati, I saw it and now I have to have it so I'll likely be buying it. Probably at a price premium *gasp* to get exactly the color scheme, exhaust and mix of carbon fibre bits. This coming from a penny pinching persona, what gives?
Has anybody else been afflicted with this disease?
