Hi from South Africa

Hi there, Mark here from the sunny SA. I joined the forum yesterday after reading some very helpful posts and got to the bottom of some issues etc. I took delivery of my 1299Panigale S three weeks ago and had it on the track for the first time on Saturday. I had an awesome experience and the bike blew me away. Currently being serviced and I cannot wait to get her back. Looking forward to learn and share some experiences. Cheers!
Thanks from Phl, Twistedracer and tinus675

Hi Gecko, no I did 1200km before going to the track and did around 200km on track day. Ducati South Africa actually arranged a Family Christmas Track day at Kyalami and invited all owners who purchased Ducati's from them over the past 3 years. I had to run my bike in before the track day and they arranged to take it in for the first service afterwards. I did everything according to what the dealer advised and I was allowed to run up until 1500km before the service and only opened her up on track for the first time. I'll have to go back after the service sometime to feel the difference after the service and remapping etc.

I see all you guys have the Anniversario, I am so jealous. Only four made their way to SA and I had no chance getting my hands on one!

Welcome , so you racked up like 1200 k's in three weeks?.....and I have got just under 2900 in 11 months.....
Maybe I am just not that much of a fanatic

Wish Tobie and his team would open a dealer down here in Cape Town,

Hi Greg, I had to work a little to get the km on in order to enjoy Kyalami. I have to admit, it was easy getting there and I am very happy with the bike. Love riding and we stay in a beautiful area with nice roads and friendly cops!
