I like to change bikes pretty frequently. I got my Jaffa in July 18 and love it, but, well, you know....
Thursday just gone I was in the dealers and made the mistake of test riding a Ducati Panigale v4.
It was 2 degrees, snow and ice on the ground, and I loved it, despite being terrified on the test. Cut a long story, I bought one. 2018 v4s. Dont tell the wife, it arrives in the next couple of weeks. I am a lucky man.
Here's the point of this. Normally I only keep one bike (cant ride two at the same time etc) but there was no way I was going to sell the Kwak. I have room in my life for both and I actually think the Z is a better bike for me, but I had a 40 year itch to scratch and it was one of those YOLO (as da yoof would say) moments.
My bet is that the Z is a keeper and the Panigale is a hot, passionate affair (well, the seat is, thats for sure).
By the way, when is spring...????
