My Wife Finally Picked Out A Bike

My wife was with me at Ducati Seattle yesterday and for the first time EVER, and I mean ever, she said ďthat is a beautiful bikeĒ 🤩. She was lookin at the scramblers.

Now Iím no stranger to bikes. 7,000 road miles per year and just a hair under 1,000 on track this year. I currently own a Ď15 821

This is my daily rider.

Two track bikes, dirt bikes, etc.


My wife finally expressed interest so damit, she is getting a scrambler. Iím sure the 62 will be appropriate for her and Iíll customize it to be a good match for her. What is the things you have found to be problems with these 400ís.

I see a lot of complaints about cold starting and quick tire ware. What else have owners found to be major issues, wants, or cautions?

I put custom bits on my bikes so if there is anything other than the standard exhaust, ECU, slider, mirrors package I should also get please let me know why.

#1 important thing is safety and comfort for her so it can be a fun learning experience. Iím looking forward to trying to get into a session of Team Oregon with her later this year to get her an endorsement and Motorcycle Safety Training.
