I'm definitely a newbie as this is my first Ducati, even though I have ridden a few in the past. I'm a Brit ex-pat working out here, luckily I live one hour from Bahrain. There are plenty of fellow riders there, a Ducati dealership and the Bahrain International circuit. It's cooling down here and the season is about to start. The photos are from a test ride last season, the bike is still evolving! Looking forward to riding my very special 1299 Panigale!
