2016 Panigale R at Aragon



Great three days at Aragon a few days after the GP was there. Probably the best track we have been to despite the gearing being a bit out for the track.

That's some nice riding; hope the guy in front was OK.

Aragon is on my bucket list although my riding wouldn't do the track justice.

Good job missing the "track debris." Looks like a hoot! That 8-9 complex is one of my favorite to watch...I'd love to ride it!

I want my R back

Cheers guys, it's an awesome track. My third time out on the R and it really started working for me. I'd done a couple of trackdays without setting the suspension up properly and with a few electrical problems and it didn't go so well; crashing twice. The first time the bike was pretty savage without the preload set up properly plus someone went down in front of me and I followed. Then the next trip I high sided after turning all the electrics off due to a problem with where I had mounted the IMU on the track fairings! I was really happy after this trip as it was feeling like I could push it hard like on my S, which was feeling like a distant memory until now!

I'm not using the Quickshift as it was not working properly. Ducati have sent me another under warranty so hopefully I'll have it for Portimao in a couple of weeks

Your fast. Im here at Aragon now for the third day of five. On fourth lap day one i lost my mind and had a front washout at turn 2. Suffered acute depression looking at the bike but it wasnt all that bad. Was riding again in the afternoon.
2 swiss with SL's here. Tried to talk to one of them but he wasnt talkable.
Anyway,awesome circuit and very scary. If you dont have enough momentum you loose big time here.

Hope you get it cracked Zelnik, it's an amazing place one you find a rhythm. Tyres make a big difference. Pirellis are terrible at Aragon, the place just eats them up in less than a day. I tried Dunlop slicks for the first time and they were so much better.
