New Aussie member

Hi guys just picked up an 1199 Base model. Coming from an R1 Rossi rep 2010 model (big bang). All I can say is what a difference 4 years in motorcycle engineering makes. The Pani is awesome, so light so easy to turn deceivingly fast. It doesn't quite have the off the line power that the R1 did but once you get it to around 7k its so smooth and very fast. Wow it's noisy in the helmet, not the exhaust but the engine noise. I have been looking around on the forum and already have picked up some great info.
I have attached a few pics of the new girl and look forward to being an active member on this forum over the time of my ownership.
Cheers.

Thanks from Phl
