I’ve gone naked.
By the time we reach the Old Spiral Highway outside of Lewiston, ID I’ve stripped the screen from the Ducati GT1000. The windscreen was slowing the handling, making the bike susceptible to sidewinds, and inducing a weave past 160kph. Removing the screen the Ducati GT1000 is transformed.
The steering is lighter, the bike is more stable, and all in all the GT1000 feels… well… like a Ducati. Which is just a good excuse to shoot up and down the Old Spiral Highway 2 1/2 times.
It’s not slick, but we took the time to grab some video of this road come destination.
