In total ore of your trip and i do feel the need to get out more with each passing post. Sorry to hear and see your stack, never good to see one down especially so far away. Quick question whats the make of your tank bag, does it leave any marks and are you happy with it.

Safe travels bud

I Ride: '19 V4R on order
I enjoy reading and seeing Europe through your words and pictures. I had the opportunity to spend 3 years in Zagreb, Croatia as the Marine Security Guard Detachment Commander. It was the best duty I have ever had the pleasure to experience. Your pictures and description bring back so many memories of our travel while over there.

If you get a chance to stop in Slovenia you can visit the Akrapovich facility. The Croatian capital of Zagreb celebrated its 900th anniversary while I was there and is an amazing to ride through the old part on a bike. Another ride I would love to do on a Panigale would be the Croatian Dalmatian Coast along the Mediterranean.

Safe Travels!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING photography my friend!

Love reading about all these traffic cop stops too. Wish I caught you before Amsterdam since my "Medical Hashish" refill is ready for pickup!

Stay safe and keep remembering you are setting a large part of Ducati history here Dennis! Did you get any pics of the Duchess and her Pikes Peak?

Take care brother. We are all cheering for ya back here man!

As much as I would like to see a blue Panigale or a deep metallic purple (vesuvius metallic to be exact)... in my opinion, red is the best color for these bikes and for the photos you are taking...

Can't thank you enough for the photos and sharing the ride.

Passed through Ghent trying to find a SIM card for my phone (no luck, was Sunday, nothing open).

I can't remember where I was heading, all I remember is I saw a sign for Bruges and thought, what the fuck....to Bruges I went.

As I pulled over to take these pictures, a woman walking by gave me a smile. It was more than friendly....there was just a hint of disappointment in her expression. But I continued.

She returned a couple minutes later and said, "with all our beautiful architecture, art and canals, why are you taking pictures of your motorcycle?" I had to laugh. I explained the situation to her before she confessed she was a local historian. She gave me a brief history of Bruges and posed for a pic before vanishing.

I went back to taking pictures.

Thanks for all the positive comments, guys!

Gunny: The Duchess chapter has yet to be written...coming soon, though.

leftcoast32: Can't wait to get to Croatia (next year).

luke666: Tank bag is by SW Motech. There's a small ring that attaches to the gas cap outer ring (easy install) and the bag clips down on it. Unfortunately yes, it does leave a mark on the tank. I have a 9-10" stripe on the right side of the tank where the nylon rubs when the bag bounces up and down over bumps. Would be easily solved with a piece of felt or something, but now that it's there there's really no use. Still the best luggage out there for the Panigale, but it could be a little better.

Great report! I would have never imagined Amsterdam would be as far as motorcycles thefts.
