I'll be getting my FE this week. only thing I can't decide is if I should run my BST for track or use the red wheels for the track.
Thanks from TOBTEK

Personally I love this new exhaust, I can't wait for them to finally release a race pipe and get rid of the underbelly canister.

What block offs do you have on the bike now?

Had a few track sessions on an FE over the weekend -- just a few miles on the clock, so no really hard acceleration. The handling and suspension were wonderful and very confidence inspiring. Had my knee down without hesitation on the out lap, and that was on stock tires without warmers! A wonderful experience and probably actually worth the money once break in is complete and the power can be used and enjoyed.

I found that the shift lever had very low effort -- is that common, and can it be changed?
Thanks from Prince Albert

I picked up mine late this afternoon. With the short drive home from the dealership, I could surely tell the difference between my 1199R I rode this past long weekend. I hadn't ridden a '15+ Panigale before this. All I can say is wow. It's impressive with the feel and response differences between the bikes. In one word - refined. I'm excited to get more seat time on FE.

That looks great with the black wheels.
What screen you got on there, is it the DP taller version?

Yes, it's the DP version that was included separately in the box that came with the bike.
