I Ride: 1299R Final Edition
Great video. I see the FE is stock exhaust. Curious how it would do opened up with race exhaust and map.

It seemed the FE pulled away at times? Hard to tell based on what was going on. Track times are close.

I Ride: 16R; 18 R1M
I have a 16 PaniR and a 18 R1M.
Out of the box the PaniR was just about perfect on the track for me.
The R1M needs a couple mods before Iíll be comfortable on the track with it. The stock brake pads will need to be replaced. No power, and a very dead feel to the brakes. Also the stock seat is super slippery. Just these two fixes will really change the bike.
Both bikes get out of corners really well.
For novice riders, I think the R1M would be an easier bike to ride fast.
Love them both.

That guy on the 1299rFE has got to have the worst body position ive ever seen. He is pushing on those handle bars all the way through the corners. That baby gonna end up on the ground sooner than later.

haha there was no vs there, just some easy laps around a track, which is fine it's what track days are for, improving.

That aside, what a beautiful track, I've always wanted to ride on a GP track.
