Hey All,

Was a member of Ducati.org, but not much action on the Panigale 959 so I decided to join this forum :grin2:

Located in Adelaide, South Australia and been a Red Army fan for many years now, first started off with a Cagiva Mito 125cc SP525, then moved onto my first Superbike Ducati 848 EVO 2011, had this for 5 years and only just sold it last month to Pick up a near new 2016 RED of course 959 paingale with Full Akra and Factory Ducati tidy tail.

Recent plans and mods already on the way, with Eazi-Grip Clear tank grips, CNC Anodised RED Valve Caps, Zero Gravity Dark Think Windscreen, Phillips H11 5K Diamond Vision Light Bulbs, Ducati Performance LED rear turn signals (Sleek Version), Rear Cowl with top section Carbon Wrap - Looks better than Factory :grin2: - plus more to come as I save!

So far I am pretty stoked with the bike, Full Akra System came on the bike which saved me **** loads and I must admit it sounds AWESOME and pops some lovely blue flames on the up quick shift!

Look forward to uploading some pics of my ride but thought i best introduce myself and say G'Day to you All!

Who's ready for MotoGP 2017 - **** YES!!!! :grin2:

Chat soon

Cheers Dingo, Yeah the people that I have shown the Carbo Wrap onto of the Rear Cowl say it looks great, its a cheap option for now but the initial cowl wasn't cheap

I was lucky not to pay full price for the Akra as the previous owner bought as a package deal brand new form showroom, but I **** you know this Exhaust brings out the Devil in her >:)

Full Akra...mmmmmmm....so tempting but so unjustifiable, but like Doug I am wearing down.

Congrats on the new ride.

Jorge on the GP17 with the mysterious rear box is going to be fun to watch this year. Should be a good group between the usual suspects plus Vinales, and perhaps Ianonne can drag the GSXRR up into the mix.

I am huge Rossi fan and since the day he entered in MotoGP, but if Rossi wants to get WC N0.10 it has to be this year or never. But the competition is Stiff with young blood sniffing his weaknesses. One to look out for is Vinalez he might just be the dark horse if he can stay with the top runners.

Keep to see how Lorenzo goes, not a fan of him but he does amaze me in how smooth and fast he is, however in the rain he is not the same. If Ducati is to win another WC it has to be with him this year.... we wait and see.

So many good riders still in the field, Dovi, Crazy Iaonni, Pedrosa, Crashlow, and MM93 - these guys make it all more interesting week to week

As they say, let them play >:)
