Baby R arrives tomorrow

Looks like my 749R arrives in the dealers tomorrow and should be road legal for Wednesday next week. YEEEHAAAA !!!!

Just in time to be run in before going to Jerez.

Anyone else ordered one ?

Saw one in Snells on Tuesday and I must admit, although not a fan of the 999 shape, it looks stunning. I think it's the bigger tank that does it, or all the carbon.

Nice one and welcome.

Nice one and welcome. I originally ordered one of those having had one of the first 749S. Ultimately cancelled the order and bought a 996R instead, difficult decision but I'm happy.

Well done...............I hope you enjoy it.

When you have been able to ride it a while maybe we could compare notes. AndyB & I have the big big brother.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures.

The dealer has asked if he can use it for the display model at the Scottish bike show. I agreed as long as it is sitting on a stand 10ft in the air and surrounded by armed guards.

Thanks for all the welcome notes and as soon as I take delivery expect a host of photos !!



Does anyone know where you can get side air bags fitted before my trip to Jerez
