Picked up my oil cap from the dealership today to replace the melted one from a couple weeks ago.
Premium construction & presentation no doubt, but I think the packaging is fairly excessive for what it is.

Last weeks getaway to go explore some new roads and see some people. 1300km (800 miles) over 5 days. Still a few niggles with the quickshifter surging very sporadically despite trying multiple sensitivity settings. A little unnerving and enough to hesitate from pushing much but a fair amount of traffic to keep the pace a bit slower anyway. Still fun to be out cruising with people rather than solo.
Also nice that I can ride around a corner without falling over like I did last time in Sydney 😂

Almost due for a new set of tyres and looks like the Rosso Corsa II will get a go this time as a set is around $80 cheaper than Supercorsa’s and the extra durability won’t be a disadvantage either.

That Akrapovic and the rear design of the 1299 is so sexy. I think the 1299 tail fairing and tail light design is nicer than the Panigale V4... :love:

@craig bush I haven’t had them get that far yet. It’s a pain cleaning them out of all the little crevices but easier when it’s fresh.
Can’t say the same about the bird that flew in front of me and exploded while I was doing 200kph the other week 🤮

Well, I finally got on track & it looks like I’m gonna be converting the bike to focus on that now. The roads around here are so bad it’s not even enjoyable riding a Superbike so until the new bike arrives I’ll keep the 1299 registered but after that she’ll get some more weight reduction and crash protection for when I undoubtedly bin it again 😂

HI Andy,
What do you think about the Michelin Tire?
Thanks

Well spotted as usual Howard. I forgot to mention the new tyres. Those are the Michelin Power 5’s which I wanted to try because I had a few people tell me their durability and performance on the road was as good as the Rosso corsa’s for $100 less. However I would have gone with Supercorsa’s again had I known I’d be on circuit.

I was very happy with how quickly they warmed up and the grip they offered although I wasn’t riding very hard at all & it was a warm day. Will hit up some windy roads again within the next couple weeks hopefully and have some more feedback after that.

Mail arrived with some more goodies yesterday. GB Racing engine covers (which were about 1/2 the price of R&G for some reason). Also the Jetprime/Domino e-wire quick action throttle, Jetprime kill switch and WRS left and right Nintendo buttons.
While I’m still riding on the road I won’t install the killswitch however I do plan on installing the other parts today or over the weekend and get out for a little spin to test them.

I am JEALOUS with everyone here who install Domino Quick Throttle 🤤
I wish I can to but that mean I can't install the Rizoma handle bar grip anymore...
That Domino throttle look so nice and it sure nice to have real no slack throttle then my "fake" one with that throttle slack spacer thinghy... 🥴
Very nice selection Andy :love:

Thanks @BMW Alpina Unfortunately there’s no quick action throttle for the x99 series bikes as streamlined as @HKMP7 has. It is possible to customise the v4 product to fit my bike but I’m not too sure how I’d go cutting & splicing wires. So unfortunately I do have the extra little unit to mount somewhere on the bike when it’s installed. All in all it’s a quality piece and I’m looking forward to giving it a go soon.
