If I could do it over, I'd have kept my 1098.

I miss my 1098 SFS, but only until I get on the 99 and tear up the back roads or the track.

Really wish I could have both lol

I've kept a foot on both sides of the fence by having the SFS and the 1199 S
The view is pretty good from where I'm standing

Can certainly understand that!

The main reason I could part with the 1098S and then the 1198S, both wonderful bikes, is that I'm holding onto a 916 that I've had for quite awhile now. Bottom line is I'm really overjoyed with the 1199, a very different Ducati and for me, their all round best to date.

I still have my 1098, but i have not ridden it since i got the 1199. The 1098 is all polished up and on a trickle charger. I have been asked why i don't sell it, it was my first Ducati, it would be like taking one of my kids and putting them up for adoption... Not gonna happen. Eventually the 1199 will be replaced (with whatever comes next) and when that happens the 1199 will join the 1098 on the trickle charger / garage art
Thanks from Brad

I have a 1098r bayliss and I prefer it to my 1199r, it just feels very special

Same - if I had a 1098R, I probably wouldn't have bought my Pani.
