Talking Hello from america's home town

Hi everyone!
I'm getting very excited because I got 'the call' yesterday that my '17 1299S is in the USA, and is on the truck to the dealership. Should be ready for pick up on Thursday or Friday!
I've been riding for decades like most of you. My current ride is a 2000 M900S which my wife adores. Before that was my 1998 R1... once I got on the M900, I was hooked on the L twin and I've since been enamored with the superquadro. I was bitten by the Italian bug in '94 when I saw the 916, but I was in no position to own the testarossa of motorcycles.

In short, I'm glad to be here and add another pushpin on the map of life with the Panigale.

Cheers & Aloha,
Brian

I got to peek

Well I haven't picked it up yet, but it is out of the crate and was being set up when I came by to deliver a project I am working on.

I did take some images while the lithium grease and wax were still on a select few parts.
It was built in April of 2017 and VIN/title created on May 26, 2017.

I've also included a panorama of the showroom floor. (There is a Panigale R in the pano)

Title in hand. Next stop, Insurance and RMV.

I Picked it/her up today!

I Picked it up today! It's now in the garage getting acquainted with it's older cousin. The Monster 900S.

Putting the first 20+ miles on it... everything I want this 1299S to be and more. It feels better than the demo bike I rode (I rode a 2015 1299 Panigale and a 959 back to back) and I decided to keep my new 1299S under the recommended break-in redline/orange line of 6K rpm... in wet mode... but even still it is so responsive and lively to rider input I'd stretch to say that the 1299S is almost telepathic in it's movement.
Here's looking forward to years of enjoyment on the road/track and positive contributions here on the forum.

Aloha guys & girls,
Brian
