Wonder what all you're going to do with your Anniversario. Guess it's time to update your profile yet again. Next up....1299SL!
Hey double0

Your bike is already an outstanding beauty!!!! I love the unique white/blue scheme, it's somehow pretty royal.

I guess you'd be shocked if you get your bike back after my "treatment". I really want to turn a Panigale into a freakin Steampunk bike, lot's of polished brass, enamel tank and oiling glasses, leather and wood applied. Of course without making it heavier.

Lol appreciate that. Certainly isn't everyone's liking but my opinion is the only one that matters ☺

I'm actually trying to redo my decals but no one I have contacted has even considered trying my request. I'm trying to redo them in a different way and then clear film over it to prevent it from peeling. That and a couple more cosmetic changes. Nothing crazy.

This week I received a small parcel from Podium Racing - Performance Ducati Parts and Accessories

These guys are awesome. High qualtiy Titanium products for a very good price. I have lots of bolts from them on my SL, so I decided to put some stuff on my GFs 696. Everything fitted perfectly.

I like the design of the wheel axle nuts. They are super light. Would be cool to have something similar for the Panigale.

Design of some of their bolts is similar to MotoCorse and NCR, others are completely unique.
