New rider in the prairies

Good morning all!

I just bought a 2019 Panagale. Technically, don't even have it in my living room yet. But here I am shopping for new swag to put on the bike! I'm losing sleep over what exhaust I should buy. Lol!

Looking forward to chatting with you guys/gals and learning all your tips and tricks.

Adam

Whats your grip strength 'cause after 8 grand on the tacho the thing really lights up I have only had my 2018 V4 "S" to 13,000RPM in 2-3-4 and buttoned off due to road conditions or lack there of, but I can tell you hang on for dear life if you don't the bike will probably leave you behind.
I set my DWC at 2 once it was run in I had it set at 4 to begin with during run in now that I am used to the grunt the bike carries the front wheel nicely power wheelies, I mean its putting in standard trim @190RWHP thats more than some contenders have at the crank!!

Grip is fine, but it's been cold and rainy past couple weeks so not like I do anything on the turns anymore. These tires are horrible in the rain when on the sides. I don't know what you mean by the rmp and gears comment. If you're asking what I've gotten the bike up to; no way to tell yet, I haven't used my gps gopro but at over 13k rpm in 6th the tac goes --- but the speed jumps back from --- to 167ish instantly if I roll off at that that rpm. I've seen it read 182 then --- also; the tac just updates too slow. As for DWC, I keep it at 3 majority of the time as I'm used to just wheeling here and there, as the front wheel seems to always lift off even at 8 if I pin the throttle on a straight.
