Purchased 2019 F3 RC

Hi,
At 72 years old, my Panigale 1299 S was proving to be too outrageous, so I sold it and bought an F3 RC this spring. It suits me fine...Enough HP , light weight, and both feet are firmly planted on the ground at stops, (gas mileage is way better than Panigale, no surprise). I'm heading up to Laguna Seca this week to see the WSBK races. I've been riding for 56 years, and sportbikes exclusively since 2001.

Awesome purchase.

Welcome btw, show us a picture of the bike.
Curious if it uses a new RC livery or not.

Welcome, I guess I can no longer say the F3 is a back-breaker, riding it at 71!
I just need to get more adjusted and relaxed for the bike I guess.
I own the F3 RC as well, albeit 2018 model.

Loud pipes don't save lives. Loud pipes just sound cool to egotistical riders like me

There are clips-ons that raise the handle bars a bit (10mm?) and it makes riding much more comfortable!

And welcome OP! See you there!

Welcome to the club, it makes me feel bad that I recently sold my Aprilia RSV Factory because it was too uncomfortable and you are riding an F3 RC at 72.Fair play to you, mind you I did buy a 16 Turismo veloce after I sold the Aprilia.
