Breaking in the V4S at ACH

Just got my V4S a week 10 days ago and traded in the 17 Panigale R. Next week, I'll be taking it to the track, until then I wanted to take a little fun ride at Angeles Crest Highway (Los Angeles, CA). Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks from carlpretzel and zanemercey

160 mph

I'd be a hypocrite if I said anything negative

so I'll just admit I'd like to ride that road - it looks amazing

Cops are known to look at social media and track down people doing things like this, and arrest them. Not to mention insurance companies and potential employers. Posting yourselfdoing 160 on a public road to a website, could come back to bite you.

Looks fun and no cars, but I would probably take that one off social media

I’m usually a trackday rider, if you check out the rest of my YouTube channel. I also ride Supermoto at Track only, which I haven’t posted any videos yet. This was a little break in for the V4S l, because of the service and the upcoming trackday at Buttonwillow Raceway. The bike is new to me, I just wanted to understand the characteristics and play with DTC, DSC etc.
This road is probably the best driving/riding road, and on the weekends it’s a zoo. Some people go there to race each other with the unofficial points and battles lol. You couldn’t pay me to go there on the weekends with anything less than an army tank.

Interesting that the traction control lights were never on (or at least I did not notice).

It only flicked couple times around 0:50 on the right hander.
I was also thinking about that, good catch.

Interested to hear your thoughts on the Panigale R vs V4S!
