    Cool Can our NCX do this? (With the proper tunings and setups?)



    We've got loads of such roads here, just not so brown and dry....

    Well, at least we don't need that wristwatch this guy has attached to the dashboard... It is a wristwatch, isn't it?

    Maybe a stopwatch since it was supposed to be an 'under 10 minute' run

    That's Ducati digital dashboard design.

    I am going to say this as nicely as possible without coming across as a arse.

    We can all ride like that, if the ncx was a sponsored one, and the roads were cleared for racing up. With proper gear and setup, I believe I can ride scarier than him. We in Swisslan are used to such roads.

    The rider in that video, dunno who he is, is just chicken shit coz look at the his speed at the hairpin turns. Enough said, I will try to record a hairy video if chance comes, but those darn police radar and control do not help me. Plus this is irresponsible riding behaviour on a public road.

    take care, do it only if you are safe.

    Are you kidding? Have you ever heard of Pikes Peak? That Ducati set a new record. People come from all over the world to race it every year. Our little Honda wouldn't stand a chance and no amount of engine work except replacing it would get us there.

    Maybe the speed show in the dashboard is in MPH and Happy thinks it's KPH? It would make a big difference...
