1199 vs another 1200 twin (AKA how to make your bike feel way faster for almost no $)

Shocked. Literally shocked so much I was scared to twist the throttle. That was how I felt this morning on my first ride of my 1199 after 4 days of riding a BMW R1200RT (loaner bike while mine was in the shop).

Forget all the fussing over the bike that you read online and in magazines. The Panigale is such a sweet ride, nothing else compares. Enjoy it as often as you can, and don't second-guess your decision to make the purchase.
Thanks from AntiHero and centeroff

HAHA, glad to hear the enjoyment, but that poor bmw makes 110hp and 90ftlb of torque, no sportbike. Boxer Engines are a different story

I traded up to a Pani from a Buell Lighting.. So I got to admit that I will instinctually shift around 6k rpms unless I'm in "haul ass frame of mind". It'sa hard habbit tro break. Going from the Gixer to the Lightning was just as hard.

Thats funny, I just got done riding a buell lightning today, definitely took some getting used to. Definitely an interesting motorcycle.

The Buell is particularly difficult to ride. You want to hang on to the revs and enjoy all that sweet sportbike glory, but the bike is like, "Hey, boss, this is a union shop! No revs past 6,000!"
