I Ride: Panigale 1199 R w/Dymag & CMC rotors, Ducati 916SP, '05 Gixxer w/BST's & CMC rotors, Ohlins
Mods to my R Go easy on a 75yr old guy

Motoholders AL tubular seat support. ˝ weight of stock, repairable, and racer cred.
Real CF side panels and seat sides, Bestem Matte and w/Vulturbike logos (Don’t deal w/Carbonworld.de).
CF small-style exhaust heat shield by Bestem (great customer service).
Ceramic coated stock exhaust. Valve butterfly & shaft removed then ported.
Termis used as slip-ons w/EVO map
AFAM quick change alloy carrier and sprocket. Many lbs. saved.
Fabricated footpegs from Gilles, narrowed and welded.
Fabricated fender eliminator.
Rad guard
CrampBuster and finally…..
Tank guard by Tankslapper.biz. Owner spent time getting me matte finish.

Future plans:
1. Move Braketech CMC rotors from my Gixxer to new 1199 Braketech carriers.
2. Move Shorai Lithium from Suzuki to Panigale
3. More trackdays

Now this is a hundred times better than an overview of an R. Congrats on the beautiful bike and nice mods!

Get a hold of some safety wire pliers, and redo the exhaust shield fasteners properly. Other than that suggestion, very nice job. Are you planning on finishing up the fairing in carbon fiber? Looks like you have spent a bundle to lighten it up. If you decide to install the full Termi headers, look into the TuneBoy program for your ECU, including the trim program Wayne has developed for the full Termi system. It runs far better than the included upmap from Termignoni. I am 60, and have a nicely modified Tricolore; as such, I am a believer in we "seasoned" Panigale guys have to stick together!!
Thanks from AntiHero

If you're really 75 my hat is off to you just for getting that model! Then you can modd the crap out of it and gain more of my admiration.

You only live once. At 60 years of age, my dad has days where he can barely move. He does work 60hr weeks running his own tailoring business but still, riding a motorcycle, a racebike at that, is an accomplishment in itself at 75yrs of age. Tastefully modded or not, I wouldn't give a damn.

May want to look at losing the engine covers with the different sub frame if you don't mind the heat?

Other than that, all good.

And at 75, riding an 1199R? My hat off to you sir, you are cool as f*ck!!
