You can see Bayliss gearing up off to the right when he's waiting for the green flag...then he shows up at 2:02, over shoots a corner then takes off like the press rider is dragging an anchor

Sure did lol...

I dunno if Bayliss was the one who over cooked it tho....beside, this press rider was not pushing it at all, he never once redlined the thing ugh.

riding in that environment on my 1198 im redlining every up gear and traction control set at 2...cuz I use a lot of engine breaking on my down shift so I slide a bit

Interesting to see what this engine breaking feature feels like, I may not like it

Seems like some like EBC and some don't. I'm coming from all I-4s so I'm not use to a ton of engine braking. I'm not getting it because it says Ducati on the gas tank, I'm getting it because a want a bad ass twin.

So by default, it will say Ducati on the gas tank

I'll learn to live with it...I guess.

If it were 10 years ago, I'd be getting an RC51. I was kind of curious to hold out and see if Honda did have something up their sleeve since they haven't really changed the 1kRR since it came out in '08. The only reason the RC51 came into existence was in order to compete.

That would be bad ass twins, nobody wants just one twin in that regard.
