New owner in Minnesota
on: April 18, 2021, 12:27:29 AM
Itís been a good Saturday.  Went to a local dealer to compare a Panigale V2 to the Daytona 765.  To be honest, Iíve been itching to land a V2 ever since it launched.   Itís sexy, it sounds a-ma-zing, all the electronic bells and whistles.  But, the Daytona has always intrigued me and the Moto2 variant certainly makes it more special.  I was fortunate that they had both on the floor and allowed me to wipe the 1-mile odometers off each of them with test drives. Iíve always been in the Japanese bike camp, so either way this went I was going to enter unknown territory. 

When the dust settled, I went home with 098/765 and the V2 went back to its spotlighted pedestal on the showroom floor.  The Panigale is sexy to look at and a very competent bike.  But, the biggest smile on my face after the test ride came from the Daytona.

Iíll keep my Kawasaki Concours (GRT1400 for the rest of the world) for commuting and trips with the wife.  But, thereís a special bike thatís all mine for a lot of Saturday mornings to come. 

Glad to be here.
