Perhaps I am missing some irony here, but I am 99% sure the copy owners manual I downloaded says P is for pillion. Will check tonight.

Just to ease that other 1% out of your mind:


Page #201
Changing the motorcycle track alignment
(fig. 154, fig. 155)
Motorcycle setup is the result of tests carried out
under different riding conditions by our technical
staff.

Modifying factory setting is a very delicate operation,
which may lead to serious damage if performed by
someone who is unskilled. The rider can modify setup according to his/her
needs by changing working position of the shock
absorber.

Important
The FLAT position (F)
allows for different track
alignment, as on the racing versions.

The PROGRESSIVE position (P) is recommended
with a passenger aboard.

WarningUsing the vehicle set to Flat with a passenger
aboard may result in vehicle instability.

WarningHave the track alignment set at a Ducati Dealer
or Authorized Service Center.

You are very welcome man. I want mine done asap but don't have true faith in completing this change in 10 minutes! Will just have them do it in 100 miles during first service along with all my other mods waiting on my arrival. Just want some shorty levers and hot rear sets to complete the package for my expensive taste as I continue to live beyond my means!
