I Ride: 1199 Panigale Base +ABS
Wink What's not to love?

Picked up my base +Abs this morning and immediately racked up 160 miles.

My wrists hurt
My bum aches
My backs jarred
Yes it stalled
Yes it smoked
Yes the stand was fooker to find with my toe
No the Ducati paddock stand didn't fit together properly

But, what a machine.
I wouldn't change it for the world.
I'm sat here with a permanent grin quietly chuffed that I made the right choice.

The bikes nuttier than a box of frogs!
Wild horses ain't keeping me off this beast tomorrow.

Top marks to Ducati, another Jap convert to add to your trophy cabinet.

In fact, bugger it, I'm going back out.

What's not to love ?

PS, if youre on UK roads, change to the P setting, the F setting, while fun to ride bronco, is gonna put me in traction lol.

Glad you are stoked Scoop. You found it that uncomfortable? Like, outside the norm? Most reviews have been it's rather comfortable.
