Hey wpbarlow, did you ever get to watch all of those sbk videos you asked for?
The Panigale did have a "development" year of sorts last year. Though I'm sure the new layout poses setup challenges I think expectations were generally higher.
The BMW has also had some mechanical issues that you wouldn't normally expect. I was just pointing out that their year has not gone according to plan.
Yes, I did watch the videos-- pretty sure I thanked everyone; but if I missed anyone, thanks
