Here it is again while on a ride with a local Ducati gang:

My second Duc, an '05 ST3 which I'll be riding to this year's Un:

And here's the ST's garage mate, a recently acquired '04 1000DS Supersport:

That's exactly the way I felt about my ST4. It came with a little devil who rode on my shoulder saying "You can take that corner faster than that."

I checked recently and, oddly enough, although it's 100 lbs heavier, the power-to-weight ratio of my 1200RT-LC is about the same. Cornering is pretty good, too. But I'm a much more experienced rider.
