Roland Sands 'Dirty Desmo': des-irable or des-ecration?

Roland Sands recently took the brave/insane decision to accept a commission to streetfighter a Desmsedici RR. Or dirt tracker-it anyway, as is their wont where he lives. There's no doubting the size of the cahunas required to take the angle-grider to a MotoGP rep, and equally to ride the 200bhp mutant. But was it the right thing to do? Is the...

posted any lap times around a flat track, if it gets its ass whooped by stock bikes around a flat track it will just look really stupid.

I'd love to ride one of these. Never would have gut the bike like that, but for someone with more money that then can spend, nice project.

Oh Well...........................

I suppose somebody had to do it........... It's a bit like over-treating a beautiful woman with plastic surgery. Liberty, equality, absurdity.

I defend to the death their right to do it but I wouidn't do it.

when you've finished testing it I should like to ride it just to check my feelings are justified,,,,

I know one or two people will gush over anything RS does but this is the 'Emperors new clothes' What a waste of a good bike (and engine), a Desmsedici engine has no aesthetic qualities whatsoever.

Dirt Duc

This bike is AWESOME! to ride, and sound blurs vision. Track condition was complete crap, made it very hard to deal with but the street; comfortable, crushing appeal. And yes of course its converssion version is big deal who could afford such  Opulence? Not ME! But I did enjy the time me and DD spent together.

Once again.......

.........Roland Sands has butchered up another nice bike.  His talent is limited and results always predictable.

I can't believe Ducati didn't send out an assassin for this guy. Why would you take the BEST bike in the world and cut it up. If you wanna build a fast dirt track bike, yank the motor out of an R1 or something. If all you wanted was the motor, try and build one yourself don't take the opportunity of owning a dream away from someone. That bike is useless on the track anyway, the power is completely a waste. Also, if all you wanna do is go drift your bike on the street go buy a yz250 and never touch such an awesome machine again!
