Started first time!

I spent ages moving bikes and Mr Timms’s stuff to pull out and dust down the beautiful Panigale.
Put all the bijes outside down the slope then pushed the start button... not done thus since July last! Oh joy! The sun was shinning a week day and mid morning hardly any traffic. Takes 15 mins from home to the open road😍.
Boy did he feel good, had great fun dogs pulling on their leashes on the pavements, people turning to see what it was whizzing by. The best was when I pulled in at my local haunt and attention he got ( its a ‘he’ bike not a ‘she’). Even had someone ask if he could take a photo as I pulled away 😂 .
Suffice to say out I went again the next day sooo much fun. I love Ducati and this really is a handsome bike
Thanks from able duc

First ride of the season or being away from riding for a spell is always like the first time! That rush is fun!

Haha love the fact your bikes a bloke! Mine is very much a lass! As for the first ride after a break it’s such a nice feeling. My 3rd and first real proper ride of the year was up to willingham woods near market Rasen. There I was tootaling along coming out of corners giving it some beans thinking this Bike doesn’t feel as fast as I remember. Then I look at the tacho, realised I’m short shifting at 7k! After actually holding on to the revs a bit longer I was savagely reminded things start to go batshit at 7.5-8k! Happy days! Long may they continue.

I’d be the same if I hadn’t had a ride for 9 months!

My machines are neither, not because I have some weird thing going on I just view them as machines. But yeah it's great to ride them after a big break.

I registered my 1199 because the track day's were too infrequent for my Pani riding pleasure. When I ride to work it sits amongst some pretty good bikes but it is for sure the special attraction.
