02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

The soon to be released Duc motard only has normal sports bike suspension on it.

So we won't be jumping gutters and speed humps and riding up and down stairs on it.

It will also not take much abuse off road.

Pity...I was looking forward to this bike.

I thought they were going to have long travel suspension...but they're not.

Normal Duc suspension is nothing to rave about.

That first pic is great though. :D
It's not just a mode of transport, it's a fking adventure!

im not too sure about the indicators on the handguard idea...i think they need to ship at least 3 replacement pairs with each bike sold..

Talented fellow, this Mr. Xaus...
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

I really enjoy these types of bikes, would love to have one for the commute to work instead of runny up Kms on the 950ADV.

Always liked the KTM


 but this Duc is really really cool. 8)  :twisted:

Im with you mark...

My preference tho is the yammie xt 660 with twin akra's...i crap my pants each time i get passed by one of them in the morning..

a real cage-terroriser... :D  :D  :twisted:

And second the Suzook DrZ 400sm..for the price it hink it's a great commuter..

and if i was a rich man.. tralalalalal (coming soon to a PC screen near you.. Wilddogs, the musical) i would want to buy the BMW x-moto...

I like the DRZ 400 Motard myself..and one day when I see a used one at the right price I may get one.

Too expensive here for what it is brand new at the moment however.
