The Qwack has arrived! *pix*

After a whirlwind tour and a 10 hour drive each way, through the mountain pass and the snow, we've finally got our hands on our brand new 1098! We left at 3 am on Thursday morning and drove non-stop to get there and back.

Huge thanks to Kathy Jo and Dave from Bend Euro Moto for hooking us up with the bike in very cool (tax free) Oregon ... and to Ducati North America for their assitance...

Initial impressions? None right now... I'm running on about 4 hours sleep in 2 days and 20 gallons of Red Bull ... it's amazing that I can stay awake to type this... Also a big thanks to PK for sticking with me and driving the night shift, and Doug Meyer for telling us about Bend Euro Moto...

Just finished washing the 1098 off and got it up on it's stand... now I need to get some sleep... It's POURING rain out right now but sun is in the forecast for the weekend

I'll post up some pix in this thread...

The LONG road to Bend....




Look who shows up to watch us take delivery!




Bend Euro Moto...






Not much under that "seat"...








Love them DOT reflectors!






Pipez!

I was feeling pretty good about the Brembos until I snapped this pic...




PK in the Lambo...




The Qwack leaves Bend...




Dog is pleased...




Stoppin' 4 more Red Bull..












Outside the crack hotel...














Success! Got my rubber stamp from the Offices of the Banana Repulic of Canuckistan! Rubber stampers still have to give me one more rubber stamp on Monday





Home, and wet...
