I Ride: 1199s
I'm New to the Ducati family!

Hello everyone.
I just picked up a 2013 1199s and it is due to arrive this Thursday. I have been riding R1's for the past 8yrs but have been lusting after the Panigale since they've hit the street. Just a gorgeous machine!
I'm not a track guy, more of a street and leisure rider. I've been interested on taking the bike cross country.
Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

I've been checking out this forum to see what others thought and felt about the bike.
I got the bike from Seattle Ducati and it's being shipped here to Chicago.
It has about 24 miles on it and I believe it was the show bike for the dealership.
Anything I need to watch out for?
Anything I need to be sure to do?
Anyone in the Chicago land area?
I look forward to reading your comments.
See you guys out there!

Congratulations and welcome.

Talk to Antihero if your interested in traveling across the country.

It might be awhile before he can respond since he's just started his newest adventure traveling across the world on the a Panigale.

Thanks for the tip! I thought about that and had the dealer install the comfort seat before the bike shipped.
I'll have pics up as soon as it arrives!!
