1199 guys are already acting smug enough when it comes to saying "baby panigale/entry panigale" is for those that cant handle power and can't afford a real bike. Glad this video proves them wrong.

Usually those saying "baby panigale/entry panigale" is for those that can't handle power and can't afford a real bike are the ones that owns a bike for pure posing on the local street corner. The only time they go fast is on the straights. People representing the exception that confirms the rule are usually more humble.

As they say, "it takes one to know one". I used to be like that with my R1s in my the early days of bike riding. Discussions always was about HPs, and who could go fastest from point A to point B. Truth was, no one was ever capable of using the full power on public roads. Everybody always argued the opposite of course. Some were really fast, for sure, taking big risks. Every year someone had to die.

Then at some point I grew up and started to ride for my own sake and not to look good in the eyes of others. That's when bike riding became more fun than ever. Now when someone starts to talk about big engine here and HP there, I just smile and nod. ;)
