So my first time on a Panigale..
For the first session I was struggling a bit to get used to the position because I've never rode a sportsbike on track properly before so I was really heavy on my arms and wrists. By the time I came in they were already hurting after only one session, I'm usually always pretty tense for the first session to be honest but I needed to relax and use my knees more rather than putting all the pressure on my wrists. Once I mastered that, honestly I got on with it really well! I didn't feel out of my depth at all, of course it helps that I'm used to riding twins but the 959 really was easy to ride! The power wasn't like "holy shit!" But it was really effortless to throw around to easy to move around on the bike. I really enjoyed riding it, oh and we looked aesthetically good together matching ha. I would definitely like to try more sports bikes on track and of course the V4 to compare. The only other Ducati I have ridden is the Monster 761 and honestly that is still one of the best handling bikes I've ever ridden. I once assumed all Ducati's would be hard to ride because of the older Pani's and so on but that's not the case here. Couple more photos to upload after this one.😊
