My new V4S s/n ending in 0000469 Go Vali and RIP Nicky

I'll be picking up my new Duc in a few days. I had never even ridden a 1000 bike before 2009, (raced all venues from 6 years old) I ordered a 2009 BMW S1000RR for my first superbike, 2010 kaw ZX10r, 2011 CBR Repsol, 2012 R1M Ben Spies, 2013 CBR 1000rr, 2014 CBR1000rr SP, then a 2015 R1M (had to have the trans recall and sold the bike after it was fixed) then another 2016 R1M. Now riding a XSR900 Anniversary, been waiting for the first manufacture to come out with a V4, was thinking Honda would have one first. 2018 picking up my Ducati V4S next week. Been fun to go through the Electronics evolution. Looking forward to the comparison between the R1m and this new Panigale.

That's a very logn and impressive list of bikes and welcome to the forum! Will you keep the XSR900 Anniversary as a side bike for long weekend rides?

Wow man, you've certainly owned your fair share of 2 wheelers. It'll be interesting to see how you find the V4 in comparison. Have you done any mods to your XSR?

Welcome to the forum. Hope you can keep your XSR900. Love that bike. Moreover, it's a great offset to the Panigale.

Yes, the XSR is the easy to ride bike and seating position is better for the longer rides.

My XSR has an Akarpovic exhaust and radiator stone guards

I had one for a day (great dealer) while my other was in service for a routine 12k. Very Monster like but better in traffic. It's just as Hooligan like which I loved.
