New 1299 buyer

Wellllllll.....Since I'm the new guy who just put a deposit on a 1299
Saturday,I guess it's time to join the forum that twisted my arm into
this madness.

Ya'll are a bad influence.

I had my mind pretty set on a new R1 but the 1299 drew me in like....
well I won't post that here.

I do have one question for the forum...I'm looking for new leathers. As a guy
who spends way to much time at the gym,is it worth trying to find off
the rack fitment or should I just get custom ones? I'm like 5'8" and 235....

BTW,Gulf Coast Motorcycles in Ft. Myers is the dealer I ordered from.

Is it April yet?

Chris
Thanks from Phl

Hey. I just joined as well. Welcome to us!

I would get customer leathers. I've had my Vanson leathers for a while now (Street Riding, Track Days and Racing), and they have been great.

Yes, welcome and congrats.

Ive often been told I was a VERY bad influence on members here getting them to go absolutely crazy purchasing various mods for their bikes. Its taken as a compliment to be entirely honest!

Best wishes to you and your new bike dude!

Good luck on finding off the rack for 5'8" and 235 pounds. You may have an expensive set in your future. Enjoy the 1299.

I put a deposit on a base 1299 last Friday also. It has been snowing here for the last seven days and frigid like ****.
Anyways, my qustion is why is everything Ducati twice the price? I have to admit that it makes searching for things easy: just sort from highest price down...
