Lurker actually buys Panigale today!

Some of ya'll have seen my posts the past few months, and some probably figured I was a troll and would have been happy to see me go. But I most assuredly was not a troll, and today I made the deal. The bike is bought and paid for, but still at the dealer. I'm having it delivered to my house tomorrow. Logistics just aren't good for me having someone take me up to the dealer today, so I just drove up and did the paper work and paid them.

Pics are about the same, but slightly different angle. Oddly enough, they got in the new heat shields yesterday and were putting them on yesterday when I went up there to make the offer. The owner of the dealer is a 30 year friend of mine, but I had not talked to him in a couple of months and he did not even know I was going to be there yesterday. When I made him the offer he said the bike was in service getting ready to have the heat shields installed. BTW, in person they really don't bother me at all.

Can't wait to get the bike and do some riding this weekend!

BTW, it is a new "leftover" 2012 ABS model.

Ok, the rear guard looks like the avatar that was the all leather person with the belly blown up - the cylinder looks like Batman's chest plate - not sure I can put that on my bike, this summer will tell, plus I can compare to my neighbor Apeluvs. Maybe just never look at this side of the bike.

Well done, be prepared for a total shift in what your thought previously, be patient, there is a lot to learn on these new machines.

enjoy and cheers
