What do they offer for a possible trade in? And how sounds it to you?
They finally got back with an offer ... $18,000.
I guess given they have to mark it up and make some money that's a reasonable offer or starting price to bargain from.
The Ducati Streetfighter V twin is $23,200 and the V4 is $32,400 so that's $5,200 or $14,400 change over.
I strongly suspect I'll not act as not only would it be moderately expensive but on a Streetfighter my licence wouldn't last very long. :oops:

Tried my new lifter from Horning. Have to remove the sump Guard to use. But will make servicing and upgrades easier.
That's a pretty trick set up. You have to take the skid plate off anyway to do the oil change that's nice.
I watched a service video on YouTube, where the guy flipped his foot pegs over and used jackstands.
That's definitely something to think about if you're in a pinch.

Careful, those lifters (got a similar from Becker) are tend to flip the other way round and could give the engine a serious knock.
I had a mishap with the Becker lifter the first time I used it. (I must have done it wrong.) I bought a rear paddock stand and never used the Becker thing again.

.. c'mon, you took pics from the bike - and there are mirrors, are they?
I came very near to getting that helicopter in the mirror. If I were to move a few inches to the right... I really don't know what would happen if I took photos without permission.. It's really silly since the military allows access to film crews to shoot movies on occasion. They do have an escort making sure the cameras don't accidentally point at something they shouldn't though. I'll tell you what. The installation opens to the public for an air show one day every summer. Photography is allowed that day. I'll take pictures of all the military hardware I can find.
