I caught the carbon fever!

Told myself it wouldn't happen...that it couldn't happen...the bike is fine the way it is!!

Ugghh!!....I am a victim of BLING, for Pete's sake!

It all started with the little rear coil over cover...seemed to be a nice bit of balance with the front carbon fender...and that would be the end of it, right??

Here's a synopsis of how the virus took effect:

"Wait...What's that on the shelf??? Ohh...a rear carbon fender? For a Panigale?.. Ok, toss it on the pile..what?...you say you have the other bits on order that was cancelled by a customer? Would I like them? Well...OK, call me a carbon whore, then!!"

Salesman had me hook,line and sinker!!

Pics to follow sometime this millennium.

I hang my head in Blingful shame

Carbon is better than chrome. I'll be visiting the carbon gods in the near future as well. I'd like to have the whole front area (key guard, side pieces, part under the windscreen) carbon as well as the hugger.

Don't be too hard on yourself, happens in the best families!LOL
My 08 Hyper ended up with 7k$ worth of goodies that got me next to nothing on resale value. Told myself it was a lesson learned and the Pani would stay as is.......same as you it started with a tankpad and now I'm off to the races

I'd leave the fairings alone and get the tankside covers

LMAO......If you guy's think you have been bitten by the Carbon bug, I have ordered everything that is on the Carbonvani list and should get it in about 40 days. Most of it will be painted so it wont be a carbon looking bike.

My aim is to make this one of the lightest Panigales around with lots of aftermarket ultra light stuff.
