I Ride: 2012 Panigale ABS
I guess it only makes sense to have this open to all Panigales. I was 60 when I bought the bike, I’m 65 now. I ride the bike 4,000 miles a year like clockwork and can’t imagine ever wanting to get rid of the bike but I suppose at my age the day may eventually come.

My primary bikes are a 2015 BMW 1600GT, and I just bought a 2017 KTM Superduke GT (traded a BMW S1000R).
Thanks from trooper3, bigdzx6r and loki99er

I Ride: Ducati, BMW, HD, KTM, Triumph
I'll be 52 just about when my V4S arrives. Let's call it a birthday present!

I also ride cruisers and touring bikes, so when I get too old or stiff to throw a leg over this one I'll have the others.
Thanks from jjsC6

In addition to the DP Comfort seat, Ducati may issue a Geriatric seat.
