Buyer Comments:

"Buy books from Ian Falloon and Mick Walker if you just want to look at pictures of Ducatis. Buy LT's books if you actually want to maintain your Ducati. Far superior to the every other manual, in every way..." - Chris C.

"Written for the do-it-yourselfer, by somebody who knows the challenges that do-it-yourselfers face" - Shane M.

"LT's expertise is reflected in the attention to detail in the manual. He knows and loves Ducatis and cares about how others service them." - Brad W.

"Hi LT,received the manual over here in England yesterday after buying on ebay.What can i say,brilliant,just what i need to service my Duck. Couldn't put it down made me late for work." - Mark H.

"I've been using LT's book in the garage to maintain my Duck. After six months of use, the pages are dog-eared and the pages smeared with grease. It has been everything I hope it would be, and more. Since purchasing it, I haven't opened the Haynes manual I purchased last year." - Danny H.

"After spending some time reading I just wanted to tell you that my expectations have been surpassed. If you only knew the kind of nightmare that exists in my area for service! Your experience and efforts in documenting will be invaluable for me". - Rob P.

"I have heard about this publication for a while now & now I own it I can see why people rave about it. The publication is a pleasure to read & inspires confidence to those who want to do their own work on their pride & joy. You should be proud of yourself." - Paul M

"The valve adjustment section in your manual is the best I've been able to find. I have the Ducati OEM manual and Ducati's manual is pretty close to completely useless for valve adjustments. I've read the ducatitech, ducatisuite, and moto news articles, but your's is the most comprehensive. The valve adjustment section is the main reason I purchased your manual. I would recommend it to others and I would definitely buy it again. The pictures are great! I'm glad you're out there." - Robert

"This book could replace the bible" - God

"Written by the smartest man in the Universe" - LT's Mom

"A treatise on Global Peace in our time" - The President

"Thoroughly enjoyed your book LT. Live long and prosper" - Spock
