New User/1299S Owner

Hey, everyone, new forum user here. I've been riding since 2002 and am pleased to have picked up a brand new 2016 1299S about two weeks ago...non-demo, only a handful of miles on it, and at a great price since the dealer needed the space in the showroom! It was a present to myself since my birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, and also a reward for recently finishing my master's degree.

It's my seventh bike overall, and my second Duc superbike (first being a 2008 1098). It's surprisingly comfortable and feels like it's a much larger bike when handling bumps in the road. Only 460 more miles until the break-in is finished.

-EDIT-

Added picture. It was very damp when I got to the dealer, but the rain held off for the most part while it was loaded onto the trailer for the drive back home.
