I've recently acquired my first Ducati.... a 1199 Panigale. I've been riding for 15+ years, but it's a big step up for me as the majority of my riding experience is around the 600cc bracket.
Bit of a dream come true to own a Ducati. I remember in my early 20's going out on breakfast runs and seeing the odd guy pull in on a 916 and thinking "wow, one day..."
I plan to do a couple of track days a year and of course some weekend riding as well. I've a long learning curve ahead of me
Keen to say hi to anyone in the Surbiton/Kingston area whose interested in heading out for the occasional run on a Sat or Sun morning and/or join me at the track sometime.
