Thanks for all of the kind words and interest. The bike is ONLY listed for sale here, as it isn鈥檛 bike buying season for most...But for the enthusiast, passion knows no season, right? If nobody here is interested, and I actually decide to sell it, it will be in the spring of 2019, and it will be marketed across the known channels, maybe even the fleaBay. I am fortunate to be in a place where I do not need to sell it, but I really don鈥檛 ride it much anymore, most of my free time is now spent flying airplanes.

Additional info: I failed to mention that the bike has also been protected by a clear shield, non-adhesive 3M film on most of the forward facing bits...Invisiguard, invisishield, some sort of invisisomething I can鈥檛 remember. The film is still in excellent condition, clear as the day it was applied, covers headlight, front fairing, fronts of mirrors, nose of front fender, tops of fork tubes, kick-stand well, lip under the bottom fairing, etc. I mention this as I feel confident the film has definitely worked to avoid paint chips.

Tell a friend! Preferably one with stacks of cash and a penchant for hand-built Italian works of art.

Thanks for looking,

Larry.

THANK YOU!!! I paid less than $200.00 USD for the kit, I recommend not going cheap on this as the quality and thickness of the film will determine your results over time, avoid anything with adhesive. I installed the kit myself, with the help of one other person, but it wasn't the first one I had done. It isn't hard if you follow the directions exactly, a second set of hands is helpful, start with the smallest pieces on the flattest parts, saving the tank and front fairing for the end, once the technique is familiar.

Here is a VERY similar kit, also 3M non-adhesive, but it is being sold by a different company, this is an example only NOT AN ENDORSEMENT, there are many out there and I did mine YEARS ago!

It's tough to see from even three feet back, I've attached a pic of the nose, you can just barely see it on either side of the headlight, and both the upper and lower portion of the headlight lens are also covered, but it is practically undetectable. I definitely suggest SOMETHING, I put the same on the 1098R and the RC-51...I guess I'm sold on it! :grin2:

Damn, that's 拢20k in sterling! I have a Cousin in Cali ;)

So, importing from US? Shipping, duty and dreaded VAT would make it about 29k?! If I was Stateside I would have bought that. Good luck with the sale, she's a beauty.

l'll see you over there after I've finished making a move on one of those Kardashian gals:grin2:. Doesn't matter which one because I'll share my Botox with anyone!!0:)
You can tell I keep up to date with the social scene. I thought the Kardashians were one of the alien races on Star Trek :wink2:

The Tamburini is my all time favorite bike and would love to have one to keep for life.
At least I have what I think it's the official helmet for the bike but I guess I will keep it just for memory because most likely won't have the bike.
This seems to be a perfect Tamburini and I hope it will find a good home:wink2:
I also would love that a new F4 can be released to honor Tamburini just like the F4C.

I put the same stuff on my F4 750. Aussies can buy it from "clear guard" on the Gold Coast. Great to deal with. But I only purchased the side fairing, belly pan and tank pad. Almost invisible and very durable. I really don't ride my bike (down to 1000ish km/year now) enough to warrant much more. All my play money goes on the track bike now :)

SOLD!!! Am I legally required to change my username??? I鈥檓 sure the new owner will be quite happy with this masterpiece, or I鈥檓 sure I鈥檒l here about it here.....? I will let the lucky new owner share any details at their leisure, so I will not be sharing anything else, other than I feel more as though an adoption has occurred, not just a sale, and that lets me sleep well at night!

So for all of the times I was asked if I would keep the 1098R or the Tambo? For now, the Duc wins but the Tamburini is the Crown Jewel of the two.

I will always have a motorcycle in my garage, hell there are still four of them, but I fly way more than I ride these days, and it looks like a general aviation aircraft purchase is in my near future, and the Tambo deserves more than I can give. The 1098R may go next spring, we shall see, for now I welcome a brand new 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 that I am turning into a cafe racer...BTW, Ducati is giving these 2018鈥檚 away, almost free! Well, slight exaggeration there, but CHEAP!

Thank you all for this amazing community, I will miss 211, but she鈥檚 in really good hands!

Thanks man...it鈥檚 a bit of both TBH...

1987 Yamaha YSR50 (50cc single)
2004 Honda RC-51 Nicky Hayden (1000cc twin)
2008 Ducati 1098R (1200cc twin)
2018 Ducati 1100 Scrambler (1100 cc twin)

I pick up the 1100 on Friday (adding lower bars, bar end mirrors, real tires), but I rode one last weekend. Fun, capable standard bike with a nice wide torquey powerband. Handles nice, comfy, and I forgot how fun sitting up on a bike can be!!!

Just came across this while scanning through the FS section.
Thanks to Griff for letting me adopt 211. It has been a long process but we got there in the end after American customs were captivated by her beauty and kept her longer than they should have!!
The registration process has taken a while so I have only had a quick run out on trade plates while I was home. A completely different animal to the RC and the sound...... RC sounds like a screamer compared.
It is in a good home and will be cherished. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to own this bike.
