Spot on, shilling! Couldn't agree more with what I've experienced. I've only done a tenth of the miles you've packed on so far.

7.5-10.5k, quick-shift two, three, four. It's intoxicating. The surge of G's just feel like they multiply as you climb higher to 10.5. The fastest bike I rode before this was a 2004 R1. The Panigale has melted my face and left me giddy as a school girl.

I'm glad you guys are loving the intoxicating rush from 7.5 k to 11 rpm.... but I know I felt the same thing on the 1199 as most of the 1199 owners will probably agree.

You guys must not have put on enough miles on the 1199s... I thought mine pulled like a freight train from 6.5 up.

Just saying...

Having never ridden an 1199, I can still say that I have no doubts that the experience for either bike is pretty much the same. What I do feel like is that any further 'exaggerations' due to the increased power, like even more constant wheelies during a drive and so on, are all but picked up by the electronics, and you can feel that right away. Only solution is to go hacking down to the off/lowest setting until you find something you like.

It does - that's right in the fat part of the torque curve, and probably 15 ft-lbs up on the 1199

My nickname for this bike is "stump puller" - it pulls harder in the midrange than anything else

Shilling does the 1299 feel hotter than your s1k did? I'm trying to figure this out, but my local dealer won't let me test ride one without practically buying it, which I won't do. My previous dealer let me ride a 15 S1000rr and it was amazing, much more refined than my 14 S1000rr. I really want a Duc but I daily ride and in florida it can be constantly in the upper 80's and more with a lot of stop and go traffic and I'm not trying to cook myself lol

You really need to test ride both, demo 1299s should be available. The 1299 runs hotter and you notice it more on your legs if you're sitting at a light or in traffic, but when I'm moving I don't notice it. For daily riding I would say the BMW is more comfortable, but the 1299 has the torque and you will notice that immediately when you ride it. They are radically different bikes, so you need to ride both to make an educated decision.

Yes.. The 1299 is definitely hotter than my S1000K was, at least it is in stop and go traffic. Outside of that scenario, there's zero difference n terms of the rider feeling heat. Out on any road that you can keep your speed above crawling, I feel absolutely no heat from the 1299.

Interestingly, the 1299 runs a bit cooler in general than my BMW did. The engine temps on the freeway are almost identical, but through the twisties, the 1299 seems to run a bit cooler.

I am running distilled water and water wetter instead of antifreeze in my bike... Can't run antifreeze on the track.

Cheers.

ah yes.. I asked you this before... Aberdeen.. Lovely up there, but as you say, cold.

The roads around here are mixed.. My standard ride is on some pretty good Tarmac, so I can keep,the suspension settings pretty tight.. On my commute, I switch to the softer setting, because the streets of San Francisco resemble freaking bomb sites more than actual roads...

It should be noted that your 2011 S1000RR is not a 2015, which you have not ridden.

The 2015 S1000RR runs cooler, believe me, I rode both. If I was commuting every day or taking longer trips, I'd say it's a better bike in terms of comfort factor - and ultra smooth. The 1299 can be a bit of an oven in traffic - big pistons, relatively small radiator, lots of heat
