Hello And Morning All!

Discussion in 'Newbies Hangout' started by Sonic, Aug 1, 2017.

  1. HI All,

    After a few years of on/off lurking around on here I thought I'd start a newbie thread to formally introduce myself to you all. I've always loved Ducatis, and I used to own an 1199 Panigale from 2013, then earlier this year traded it in for a 1299 with a Tricolore colour scheme.

    I love the 1299, a lot more refined than the 1199, but either way the Panigale to me is one of the sexiest bikes on the planet! I could sit and stare for ages!
    However, I also like getting my spanners working in my spare time, which the newer bikes don't really need. So i also decided to buy a 1098R which has been in someones living room since 2013, off road for the past 4 years. The plan for my project is to get it back to original and also back in a condition where it can ride on the road so servicing, belts, a full thorough check etc!

    Ill most likely create a full rebuild thread for the 1098R once I get started, but I'll attach some pics of the 1299 in the mean time... (sorry don't have any great ones of it at the mo except the dealer pics!!)

    Hope to speak to you guys soon!

    Sonic (aka Malik)
