Finally got it out for a long ride

Bought my 1299s new in November, till this weekend due to crappy weather and business trip I only got it up to 230 miles and just in and around DC. Today was nice so I was able to ride 150 miles on my favorite back roads. What a great bike, I like the sound, feel, and torque on the 1299 so much more than the RSV4 that I had. Iíll soon have it past 600 miles and Iíll open it up. I also used my ReVit Ignition 2 pants for the first time. Very nice and comfortable
Thanks from able duc

What mods or accessories have you installed. Iím also came from an RSV4 so I am interested in your comparison of the two bikes.

I see your from Plymouth area. I'll probably be going through the forest today. Love those roads.

No mods yet. But probably the DP rear sets and the Akro slip on. I’ll do that at first service. The RSV4 is a good bike, but I missed the V2 feel and sound. Also power delivery. I’ve had the RSV1000, a Rc51 and two KTM 1190 twins. I’ve had inline 4 too. So I got the RR to try a V4. But in the end I like twins better.

If you're near DC then you need to hit the mountains in VA/WV for day trips. Awesome knee dragging roads.

Aha, you like the big rumble of a v-twin. I'm getting just getting used to it, I guess. Just put on the comfort seat, OMG what a difference. So far its the best $260 I've spent and really wish I bought it a long time ago. lol

Yes I like the V twin rumble. I’ve had various I4s but since I had a big crash many years ago at Summit Point during a CCS weekend, they really make my right hand tingle and go numb, aided by a big plate and six screws inside it from the crash. The V4 did it too. Guess the plate and screws in my arm sort of pick up and resonate at the higher frequencies an I4 makes. The V Twin does not make high frequency vibrations and I don’t get numb hand and wrist. The 1299 S and my 997 C4S feel like long lost cousins, sort of. Raw and demand attention and concentration at all times. Feathering the clutch in the 1299 in DC stop and idiots go traffic totally sucks I’ll admit that. But once I’m out of it the fun begins.

I hear you. I put motivation heavy barends on my RAV4 and it was the smoothest thing Iíve ever had. The Panigale vibs or thumps a bit too much for me but itís getting better after some well placed mods.
