Finally i pulled the trigger and got my new 899 Panigale. I am coming from 2007 Yamaha R6 which I traded for this one. I also own a HD vrod muscle (totally different ride though).
Anyone from Charlotte, NC area?

Just one thing that I would ask the 899 owners - are you planning for a replacement seat? After 50 miles of riding my behind was numb :)

Congrats. I put the comfort seat on mine. I swear it raises you up 3" though.

Nice looking bike. Which tank protector are you using?

Congrats on your purchase. I myself find the stock seat to be fine. I do long full day rides and never had an issue.

Welcome to the forum! I will say to you what I say to every other 899 owners that bought a white one! You got good taste and picked the best color! Haha!

Ducati tank protector. I am glad I got this installed. My jacket zipper put scratches on it already.
Is that a new style? It has more cuts in it than one I bought a a few weeks back, which probably makes it contour better to the tank. How's it sticking? My clear Ducati one sucks the big one.

Thanks, and welcome to the club!

I guess so. I have seen pics by other members and theirs seem to a bit bigger. It sticks real nice. I bought it with the bike. paid $53 (worth).

Welcome to the forum.
The 899 is a big change from the Harley but you can choose a bike depending upon what kind of roads lay ahead.

Enjoy the bike and all that it has to offer.

Welcome aboard and congrats!

I think you might get use to the seat after a while but you can look in to buying a gel and diy for better comfort.
