 2003 Ducati 999 Track Test: Italy Comes To The Fastest Road In The West
Although only a small improvement in aerodynamics was achieved with the 999 (the 916/996/998 had superb aerodynamics, already), the 999 design focuses extensively on weight distribution and center of gravity.
The rider sits lower on the 999, closer to the rotating axis of the motorcycle (and its center of gravity), and weight bias has been shifted towards the front wheel.
Engineer Forni explained that due to the lowering of the center of gravity on the 999, and an increase in length of the swingarm (the 999 swingarm is 15mm longer), weight shift due to braking forces is reduced, and the 999 is less likely to lift the rear wheel under heavy braking during a race.

 The SF Site: 999 edited by Al Sarrantonio
However, several 999 stories are just plain good horror (if even slightly pulpish): Stephen King's "The Road Virus Heads North" or Al Sarrantonio's "The Ropy Thing," amongst others, don't need the accolades of the literati to make them good solid scary stories.
Soon he begins to interact with the characters, realizing that they are individuals from his own past life, which he feels may assist him to overcome some of his neuroses.
With authors ranging from horror icons like Stephen King and William Peter Blatty, to lesser known or more recent entrants to the field, like Bentley Little and Michael Marshall Smith, the book presents an excellent cross-section of horror as it is and as it stands to be in the next millennium.

 Galaxy Express 999 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Galaxy Express 999 (銀河鉄道999; Ginga Tetsudō Three-Nine) is a manga written and drawn by Leiji Matsumoto, as well as various anime films and TV series based on it.
Unapologetically melodramatic, with highly episodic morality-tale stories, Galaxy Express 999 has a philosophy perhaps closer to that of Friedrich Nietzsche or Ayn Rand than the eastern mysticism often found in anime.
In 1996, Matsumoto began a new GE999 series, set a year after the original, in which the Earth is destroyed and Tetsuro sets out to discover the source of the "darkness" that threatens all life in the universe.

I’ve just been through a series of corners on the Ducati 999, and I’m searching for words to describe it; heady, exhilarating, enthusiastic, invigorating, enlivening and inspired all leap to mind.
The 999 is a quasi-religious experience, which makes sense; this bike was designed by the Italians after all — who’ve also brought you the Pope, the Catholic Church, atonement, and now the greatest sin against the cannons of traffic law the world is likely to see — the Ducati 999.
Then there is the Ducati 999, it’s in a special category where you look down and suddenly realize how much speed you’ve carried through the corner and feel awe tinged with panic.
