Who wouldn't want a panigale in the garage. Especially in R trim. The price tag is a little steep but you only live twice. Nice wheelie. Nice duds. I was surprised this bike was less than perfect. I sill want one.

Almost perfect. A superb machine on the track. A special treat.

$30k? A bargain at half the price; get two.

Some friends who went to CoTA said the facility is amazing. Pretty neat that our Mr. Duke got to tear it up. Great form, you look like a WSB ride. And a gratuitous wheelie shot!

Really enjoyed the write up and video. I like the "justification math" at the end too. If not for kids and the cost of their damn college, I would probably own one of these. Of course, such a bike would be massive overkill, but it would be fun to take to the track. Speaking of, really need to get the FZ1 out to High Plains Raceway east of Denver for a day of playing around. I hear really good things about it.

It's an awesome bike. However, having seen them at the track several times and talked to the owners, I'll keep my deposit down on the RSV4.

Yep, top-notch circuit and facility. I'm sure it will make for some great GP racing next month.

Don't sell me short on the wheelies! I gave you one by Spies and 2.1 by me!

Glad you liked it, Duken! This is the first I heard of High Plains. Looks pretty good, something the Denver area really needed.

High Plains Raceway is a little short on scenery, but is a VERY fun track. Lots of elevation changes with a nice mix of technical corners and high-speed stuff. I did a four-hour endurance race there a few years back and had a blast. Definitely recommend. The FZ would make a fun toy around there.
