Very nice! I've got a friend in Scotland who does rally races and has a few Ducatis. He posts videos on Facenook that stress me out just to watch. There's "go fast" and then there's that fast. Enjoy, and be careful with it.
I think they are truly beautiful. And at that price it is a true steal. When the rules advantaged the big twins in the series where I race, I raced a 1198s for a short time. The most horrible racing bike that I've ever tried on the tracks that I race. That said I have tons of left over parts from that era if you have any interest in any upgraded parts.
“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”
Awesome bike and even awesomer deal!! A tri colore no less!! I currently own 4 Ducatis, and had 2 previously. They are simply awesome bikes that require some extra maintenance. I call them the Harley of the performance/sport bike world. They have "soul". Unlike their Japanese brethren.
The getting to know each other period is the best part IMO. Enjoy it when the weather improves, and of course, be careful!
Still waters run deep, so careful I don't drown you.

Let's not kid ourselves here, everyone who likes this type of motorcycle is looking to buy one. At that price, I would have bought two if they were available. Nice find.
When I bought my 1998 ZX-9R new in 1998, the insurance was $5,000 a year. The bike was just under $10k out the door, so I didn't get the insurance. I still have the motorcycle. Out of curiosity, I asked what a 916 would cost to insure, the answer was $700 a year. Go figure.
