Does it have blokes in factory 2 piece leathers and paddock jackets blasting up and down the straight bits then turning round because they're too scared to tackle the turning bits?

A few details to kick things off.

She is a standard Panigale 1299 although calling her standard feels wrong. Its without don't the most powerful and advanced road going vtwin engine ever made past, present or future with every electronic gadget you can imagine. Power modes, Engine Braking Control, Traction Control, Wheelie Control , Race ABS, quickshifter up and down with auto blipper. Do you see what I mean (nod) calling it standard just feels wrong it's a full fat 205 bhp technological master piece of automotive engineering (y)

I'll stop dribbling and get back on track.. (giggle)

2100 miles on the clock, 3 Dealer stamps in the book the last 100 miles ago, Stunning condition, New supercoras SP tyres, R&G rad guards, R&G tail tidy, solo seat cover and the most beautiful piece of titanium art imaginable in the shape of 2 Akrapovic end cans.

She is a stunning Italian super model with the brute power of a boxing heavyweight.

205bhp and 166kg dry she is going to be an absolute riot :P

I can't wait for the next dry day (sun) Im watching the weather channel like my life depends on it (giggle)

That is a thing of beauty, well done.

From memory this was the reason for the new house wasn't it? A better area for insurance purposes so you could get a panigale? (giggle)
Happiness is not a destination. It is a way of life.

So, perhaps eurotrackdays from now on then Blade.? :)

2,100 miles is virtually brand new, I would love to have seen how the first set of tyres looked before they were changed. :?

Do the Ducati trackdays next year. A blind eye is turned for those events.
