I Ride: Ducati 1199 Base Model
How many miles do you have so far?

I picked my 1199 base on Friday evening, already put over 620 miles on it over the weekend. Seein if I can break my riding record last year. Rode 18,500 miles on my brand new 848 in 6 months. Lets see if my Panigale is up to the task!

That's pretty amazing. I'm on the other end of the spectrum.. Last Ducati I bought was a 996 new in 2001... sold it in 2006 with a hair over 2000 miles on it.

This Panigale is like a "bull in a china store" here in Austin. Just way too much traffic to have any fun on it. I bought it for blasts out into the hill country and a shot at running on the new F1 track that's being built here.

I'll be shocked if I can get to the first service by the end of the year. Keep us posted on how it holds up with as many miles as you are planning on putting on it.

I'm with you. No time and not that fun in Seattle. I'll street it occasionally with the wife. Mine has 105 miles I think in the 3 weeks I've owned it, but it DID do a session at the track

I want to at LEAST get the first service done this season.

Just got back from a 10 day road trip around northern Spain. Completed the 600 miles and first service before leaving, total mileage on bike now is 2679. Really enjoyed being able to open her right up once the 1500 mile break in was completed. Loads of smoke in the early days, nothing at all now, does cook your arse whilst riding in traffic but not to much to burn as some have sugested, I always ride in leathers. Rear tyre was changed in Spain at 1600 miles as it was totally destroyed in the mountains of the pyrenees !

Hi mate, I would sugest a slightly harder tyre if you are going to be pushing in the twisty stuff. Or check out dealers along your route and have there numbers available. I had a tyre fitted in Pamplona Spain by Puro Racing, Ducati dealer. I got the receptionist at my hotel to speak to them in Spanish and pre ordered a tyre for when we arrived there the next day. They were awesome and had an immaculate workshop with Spanish championship race bikes. Enjoy your trip.
