my 1198S was taken away from me by a cargo van on expressway. Cargo van ran from the scene, I limped away, bike went into a better place. Finally replaced her. My "new" ride. Need spring ASAP.

I'd say an excellent upgrade! The R's are dropping in price very fast. Saw one out here sell for $16k recently, which is a steal in my book.

Contrats on the new toy! Start doing your spring dance! :)

Considering that the 1098R is one of the best bikes Ducati made, not bad at all. I'd say that it's better than the Panigale R and Eraldo Ferracci would agree ;)

thanks. I rode few times my friends R and my S was set up very close, minus internal motor parts and rear Ohlins. Very happy to be on one and can't wait for riding weather. I am no collector and put miles on bikes. We will visit some twisty roads
