Welcome Engrish!!! Get ready for lots of attention and don't bother waving at Harley riders; they get all embarrassed when they see a bike so much sexier than theirs and usually refuse to acknowledge us.

You know.... some riding instructors suggest to ride in the rain at least once ;)

It's a good excuse to put on some mileage, although not the most fun experience nor easiest to clean up from.

I followed the advice of others and immediately pulled those silver vehicle emission stickers off the frame and stuck them in the back of my owners manual. I highly recommend you do the same to show off that hot Italian red frame.
YES! Did that on the Hyper, first day! Will do on the SS day one, too! California is a little a-hole"ish" in regards to those stickers...or so I understand. Check your local laws.

do they come in one piece; if yes, then maybe one idea is to keep them in a bag in case smokey ask for them

Does come off easily or did you use a heat gun? I was thinking of putting them back on the frame, on the underside, but not sure how well theyll stick once i peel them off.

Anybody done that?

I had a Yamaha FZ-07 before this. Great bike but when I test rode the SS I just fell in love. First impressions are that it is light, flickable, plenty of low and midrange torque, but you cant see ANYTHING out of the mirrors at highway speeds. The riding position is so much more comfortable than the Panigale that I sat on and the power just feels so usable. The break-in supposedly goes out to 1500 miles where Ducati says to absolutely not go over 7000 rpm so it'll take a while before I can really wring her out and see what she has.

Good call -looks so much cleaner. I'll be doing this once I get home.

Lots of guys stick them in the back of the manual
This is what I did for the Hyper.

I don't think they will re-stick very well. Best to keep them in the manual like others have done. Its really not an issue unless you live in the Soviet Republic of California. Just to clarify, I have only heard of it being an issue there through the Hyper forum. I have no first hand knowledge.
