I'm in the same boat, haven't had a Panigale in about a year and a half. But, I still come on here almost everyday.

Did you do a build thread on that bike? I'd like to see it I'm interested in cool builds rather than posts that are about clear clutch covers and jewellery.
I think you have a big fault, your images you post are too small can you make em a bit bigger?

Sure thing. Shoot me a PM.From now on anything that I am working on, building new pieces with other members here, request for parts that I have make and ship for free, pics etc please PM me and I will correspond via email. Im done posting things and attempting to contribute to real problem solving and innovation to an audience who could give two shits. I will leave the mirrors, tank bags, broken bolts, oilquariums, trinkets, doodads and "my bike is leaking" to the experts and continue with my stuff in a more appropriate environment.
Thanks from Milepost

Isn't this forum a place for all Panigale owners?
There are guys here that race, people who love bling, novices, grandpas etc.

Within the thousands of posts here one finds real pearls. Even if it isn't alway high tech or sometimes even stupid, there is definitely an entertainment factor.

Live and let live. Our forum mods are doing exactly this. And I highly appreciate that.
Thanks from Phl, TricoloreSF, youngR and 5 others

Most of the hate against you is unwarranted imo. There are a few members that have taken the "I can build it better" posts the wrong way. That said, I wouldn't bash someone for spending the $80k on a SL. Just because you can build it better/cheaper, doesn't mean the next guy can. I know I always hated it when someone knocked my bike for money spent. Someone not being able to justify cost on XYZ doesn't make that the standard. We're all in varying situations and have different relationships with money.

I consider you one of the valuable members as far as contributions go. Instead of the "I'll take my ball and go home" approach, why not stick to the topics that I mentioned earlier? We know you have no interest in limited editions, SL's, cosmetic bits etc. (nor do I). But the tech/fabricating/one off part, topics would be well received if you ask me.

I'm confident the board will go on without you.

I have been staying out of this because I'm a new member here but after seeing this turn, I figure that I should chime in with my perspective as a new member.

I understand what the OP is saying and he's right: there's no place for personal attacks like "you're stupid," etc. etc. etc. However, this should be a place for ALL panigale owners. That means a place for the guys who polish their bikes with a diaper and don't ride them, the guys who ride the bejeezus out of them and see who has the most miles, the ultra wealthy who buy one of every Ducati Superbike made, and definitely the mad scientists who just know there's a better way and work hard to make that a reality, and everyone in between.

There's no "right way" to be a good owner and it's important to have different kinds of owners here who share their perspective.

I get that no one likes reading some of these handbag fights but on the flip side of that, I like seeing where people are going from with their perspective. There is a lot of great thinking and ingenuity here and it's unfortunate that some of these other things get in the way of that.

I hope that no one stops posting and that this is a place where everyone can share their thoughts and opinions.

It takes all kinds to make a world. This forum is NO exception. I take almost everything I read on here with a pinch of salt if it is inflammatory. For the most part it's amusing to see the "usual suspects" slugging it out (handbags at dawn and all that) so not looking for a major shift change in the politics on here. It's only when it gets personal that mods need to step in. There is a lot of envy driven diatribe on here but that's true of many forums and is nothing new. That said, if you as an individual are happy with your life choices, be that bolting another piece of carbon on your bike (guilty your honour) or willy waving your latest lap time at your last trackday or berating someone for their lack of technical prowess, then it's all part of the makeup of this and countless other forums. Rise above it and move on.

I look at forums like this as part informational and part entertainment. Kind of like MotoGP; part sport and part soap opera for guys. Neither to be taken very seriously in the grand scheme of life.
