I bought my '07 Superduke in December 2007 so it's now been ten years of fantastic ownership and experiences with this bike.

First fuel injected bike for me.

First bike on a racetrack for me.

First bike to fall off on a racetrack for me!

First bike I ever more or less changed every component on it for a better one.

First bike I ever kept for ten years.

Probably the first bike I will never sell because I know I will regret it later.

Here's to the centenary of the Mk2 Superduke. :D

Yeah I feel the same way.. Just bought a cheap '06 SV650 for commuting (mainly to preserve the SD990).
It's just such a good bike to ride :)
