So, I was out riding the SFs today and decided to go see my buddy who works at a local Duc dealer. When I arrived, this is what I saw!


Within minutes, I ordered the S w/ABS! :eek:

Now, how do I break it to the wife? :confused:

You could tell it to your wife... that you were out... riding the SFs... and then that you decided to go see your buddy who happened to work at a local Duc dealer... But we know you planned it from the beginning! You were going to go to see it.. and most likely to order it!
Congrats dude. Great bike.! Too bad it is not naked...

I asked my wife that question, just to pretend. She would even look at me, so I asked my 8 year old son and he said "don't buy it".

There you have it

Lol! Actually, I was told that tomorrow was the unveiling and went today in order to try to avoid the temptation. When I pulled in the parking lot, it was right there in all it's glory. But, yes I was secretly hoping! ;)

I been acquiring bikes and covering them. I always show my wife the cheap ones I buy. "Only cost a couple grand". Keep everything covered. Been selling the cheap ones, and been buying much more expensive ones. When they are covered, they all look the same....

If it's within your means, then tell your wife that life is short and one must enjoy themselves every step of the way...then be prepared to buy her something nice too...:D

Funny you should say that.......I'm thinking a trip to Cabo might handle it.

hahaha, tough call. Did you get the panigale AND keep the sfighter? If so, then you're gonna have to live by my mantra: "She can only stay mad at me for so long...." If you are trading it in for the Sfighter, then you can just say diff bike, same $$ (assuming either you are just buying it outright, or you can put a healthy downpayment).

But who am I fooling, you're gonna be in the doghouse. But at least you have a sexy, gorgeous, badass bike.

All I could think of is that I would hide... and NEVER come out! Wouldn't even peek!

Looked at one today in the back of the store. Nice and tiny with a LOT of extra electronic gadgetry. Even being a geek, that would be overwhelming to ride. Might make it too easy to ride and you end up riding over your limits on a lesser bike.

Say you bolted an aftermarket race fairings on to your Streetfighter. But then... sorry, a real Streetfighter must go.

(it was a joke... But if seriously - just tell your wife the truth).

Congrats. I am envious and when it is a possibility for me, I will follow suit.

Yesterday one of the guys at the store delivered one of the first panigales to a LADY so theres the answer tell your wife you've bought it for here and you'll just take care of it and of course ride it...;);)

Geoff...:sleep:
