I'm back on a bike

Some people may remember my accident in 2005 but my surgeon has said I'm now at no more risk of getting injured as someone who had never been injured on a bike.
After many years I'm riding again. I'm so glad to be back on a bike.
I will post pics once I find my camera and can get the microSD card reader. I bought a 2007 Ducati 1098. This was kind of a mistake because I miss the flickability of an I-4. The MV Agusta handled a lot better than the ducati (from my 4 year old memory). I'm hoping its a matter of the tire pressure being off on the Ducati, the guy I got it from hadn't riden in in 5 months so I'm sure he didn't ever check the tire pressure.

Blue,
The wife and I split back in April but that may work again, dont know. She got into drugs and alcohol. I have full custody of my kids and needed something for me to do when I have my own time.
Yep, I did break my neck in two places but I'm all healed now and ready to ride again. I will admit that I dont go much more than 10mph over the speed limit and ride more for enjoyment rather than to go as fast as I can. I can remember being 23-24 and seeing guys with nice bikes and wondering why they were being so careful; NOW I GET IT. the road isn't a track and although I wasn't racing on the street when I wrecked; if you tempt fate too many times she will bite you.
I almost got another MV but after ~2 weeks of a guy saying I could see the bike tomorrow, I got a ducati thinking a twin made more sense of the street because of the torque. I should have gotten an 848, the 1098 is super fast and you can't really get above 50% throttle without the front getting light and tank slappy.
