DGR_IMG_2917_sadfaceSad day to sell the CB450. I really loved that bike, but I had two cafe racer bikes and one had to go to make room for a Scrambler.  Picking up a Ducati Urban Enduro this week. Bike has 450 miles on the clock, so basically brand new. I have a few plans already for this bike, but I will be be flexible beyond the first few items. First thing I HAVE to do is change that exhaust. Been researching exhausts for the past several weeks, and made a decision based on YouTube sound tests, overall aesthetics, and price. I am going with the HP Corse EvoXtreme.


I am also going to change the colors. I am going with a charcoal gray, with a slight touch of olive drab, with regular charcoal gray tank panels. Also going to replace the stubby rear mudguard with a longer version from a Scrambler Classic. If I’m gonna ride in the dirt and rain, might as well protect my back side… The bike does come with brand new side bags so luggage is pretty well set, just need to get a rear bag and tank bag… Will probably change the mirrors at some point and maybe even add some gel to the seat.  Here’s a little Photoshop before/after… ducati-urban-enduro_before-after


Small Update

Got the wheels changed out from mags to spokes. New Triple Tree, and clip-ons installed. I screwed up my seat cowl when I was added the clear coat, so instead of redoing the whole thing, I masked off a stripe down the center and reworked that section, making it darker since matching and blending would be impossible… Not digging it… Bike is at Ashton’s shop getting the Motogadget M-Unit installed. I’ll rework the tail section once I get it back… It’s a week long process, mostly just waiting for layers to cure… The black rear shocks don’t seem to be working for me anymore… Maybe it’s time for some Ohlins…
