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.
