Hello,

Just put a deposit down on a red 959, upgrading from my 2000 M750. Got a pretty good deal from Ducati of Winchester and should have it in a couple of months hopefully.
Looking forward to chatting with you and showing the progress of my bike as I upgrade and customize it.

Congratulations Renzo on the purchase. Why such a long wait for it?

Just sold onr house and want to close on the new one first. But I plan to pay cash if it's beneficial.

Welcome to the forum.

What other bikes have you owned in the past if any?
Have you started thinking about what changes you'll want to make to your 959?

That's it other than a dirtbike. I'll probably start off in wet mode until I get used to the powe change from the 750.
I am going to start wit sliders and some heat shielding and then going to work on learning how to ride the **** thing as best as I can.
Then maybe an exhaust?

Are you planning on doing a (or more) track day? That would be a good place to learn. And I'd suggest doing the school/training if that's an option near you. Once you get comfortable with this bike, you'll love it.

Exhaust is it, Akra of course :D

Unless you have another exhaust maker in mind.

Its either Akra or Termi, the forward exiting ones, but not sure I am sold on the looks yet. But good benefits.

I've taken the MSF, and I do plan on hitting the track this year hopefully. I already do it regularly with cars anyway and know most local tracks pretty well.
I think I am really going to like it, while I love the monster it lacks a surgical feel on twisty roads, not always willing to change direction the way I think it should. It's also not fast, but that's less of an issue.
If ducati made a 759 panigale that's what I would have bought honestly.

Welcome to the Forum!

I had to comment when I saw you were from Culpeper, VA! 90% of my Fathers side of the family resides in Culpeper. You have some beautiful country to ride over there! Your new 959 Panigale will eat up those curves with ease. Makes me kinda jealous actually.

If you don't mind me asking, what's the family name?
And yes, some roads here are amazing to ride/drive!

I don't mind at all. The family name is Lacy. From what I hear in irregular updates, half the family are town trouble makers. lol.

I'd ask your family name, but I've lived in Omaha, Nebraska for most of my life, and only visited once every two years or so.. I'm more familiar with places rather than faces in Culpeper. :(

Renzo...mind if I ask what you paid for it? I am going to pick up the white one from the same dealer on Saturday. Super excited.

Congrats on the bike.
