I went to my local dealership yesterday to see what all the fuss was about. I understood as soon as I saw her, and after firing her up knew I had to start making room in the garage. The only issue now is whether I can suffer owning her without being able to ride for the next couple of months. Perhaps we could take an extended vacation someplace warmer/dryer...;)

I know exactly what you mean! :) weather is still decent though, a bit cold but not icy or wet...I should get mine this weekend and I'm 100% intended to ride as much as possible...

I think its a waste to buy a bike just to have it in your garage for however many winter months. Why not save up some more money for a deposit, and then when you buy your payments will be cheaper each month and you will accrue less interest?

Where would you be able to take the 899 Panigale on this extended vacation you speak of?

I was actually thinking about buying the bike in southern Cali, where I have an office and could spend a month or two. I'd then ship it back east. The only downside to that plan is that it means not giving business to my local dealership, which is pretty important to me since they're a small shop and solid, down-to-earth folks.

Worth getting the free Termis though :)

No time to waste. Plenty of mods to get done before spring.

just knowing its mine will get me through the winter easier :)
Lol, I feel the same way. The weather has been cold and rainy lately so I haven't been out riding, but I occasionally go to the garage just to look at it.

It's official...picked her up this afternoon. My new white beauty is everything everyone has said, and more. Special thanks to Jarel and the folks at Omaha Ducati for helping me coordinate parts with my local dealer. Thanks to everyone on the forum for all the advise, etc. And of course thanks to Speed, Joe, and the techs at Speeds Cycle for getting her prepped and out the door. Now, if the weather would start to cooperate...
