Just come back from my dealership [180km round trip] to have missing bolts replaced amongst other things. Picked up some Loctite blue while I was up there. Guess this is the price to pay for rocket V twin.

at least it looks "pretty" while parts be flying off it and it sure does keep you warmer in the colder months. and the display is cool too, before it fogs up. and if you really break it down, you paid more than $10k...

I'd rather hammer a 8 inch rusty nail through my c*ck than ride a BMW!

I like the BMW too, but look man. The Duc has sex appeal and I love the exhaust note and power delivery. I'm a single guy, why not pay more for the allure of owning an Italian motorbike? I'm not sure Panigale doesn't mean pussy magnet in Italian.
Thanks from Forza Juve

should have waited a year instead of being first and got an hp4 carbon
I was just pointing out we that we already had a thread to bitch about this.

My 1990 Ninja manual said to tighten bolts before riding - really surprised experienced riders need a heads up on this. Don't for get to strap your helmets and check your gas/oil levels
Thanks from Jariva
