I like having the latest toys in my toy box, (and the hottest blonde slut at the gym) gagging on my python

Early days for me..... as for the comments on Ducati making clients part with there money? You guys need to meet the team from the UK who make the carbon super cars .... only difference is they build a reiliable vehicle

I'm not overly happy with my 1299 having some issues with it in the recent past so I'm not sure I will,add this pregnant looking V 4 to my collection
Will be reading with interest the comments from the older well schooled members who love the character building Ducati brings to ther boring fuking lives
You seem like a nice happy fella
Thanks from able duc

Nothing preventing anyone from swapping suspension parts on the 1299 - I intend to keep mine a long time, most fun streetbike out there

I bought the last 1299 S from Coleman PowerSports earlier this month. Really glad I did!

I bought mine 1299S from them in November last year. In the shop now for its first service. Got a great deal for buying in the winter.

How many will buy a 1299 twin instead of new V4?

Iím fairly certain had the V4 been out when I bought my 1299, I would have gone for the V4. Iíve done about 2k miles on it and they have been some of the worst 2k miles Iíve rode in a long time. Fortunately, I have finally got my 1299S set up properly and now I love it, but it took some time and about $1000 on:

Grips and heavy barends - vibration
Tuneboy - Ride Ability
Comfort seat - iron butt
MoTool - set up sag and suspension

I think these came in order, but now that Iíve done them all the bike is amazing. Itís handles great, stops well, and the Ohlins shines on my rough roads.

With that said, Iíve been on the V4 and it probably needs less to make it rideable, which would likely be setting up the suspension. I like the dash and electronics better on the V4, however the 1299S is the better looking bike.
