Perfectly valid, and I totally agree. We had a guy purking here for sometime before buying. He would use other posts to help point out problems with a bike he didn't even own. We cannot control it, but just learn that you cannot control people on this foum. The personalities of some escalate certain issues, and once a stance is made (in their mind) there of course is no going back or they lose face. Even if a valid argument is made. It could be worse, we could all have to live in France
Thanks from Jariva

The fact that transdesigner is absolutely right doesn't justify you being in this forum just to piss people off. You are having a blast ain't you?

It does not help to have a non-Pani owner to post various comments about the Pani reliability if he actually does not have one. Old Ducs are old Ducs and the problems were there. I have had no problems with with my Diavel and so far the Pani has been good. Both are late model Ducs without problems.

No offense to anybody, I just put more value on the long term Pani rider's comments rather than put too much attention to guys who do not ride one. That is why I asked the questions.
Jariva - the answer is "no". That's why all the back and forth.

Being un-moderated, we have to be the adults sometimes, but just sometimes

OK, no problem there. Just wanted to put things into perspective.

Maybe the US versions are the ones made on Mondays when the Italians recover from too much Chianti Sunday afternoon. The Friday ones are shipped to the US too, made during the POET's day. Piss Off Early, Tomorrow is Saturdayl

It seems my Pani was made mid week and my dealer/mechanic did a proper job setting up the bike for me (with blue Loctite).

lol those types of monday/friday jokes used to have truth in them... but not in the days where any major OEM has 6 sigma quality processes and you have quality engineers every step of the way... in 2013, you shouldn't have to hope to "get a good one"... they should basically all be good based on good quality control.
Thanks from VAST
