AH, I kind of see why you would feel out of place, but you got invited to be there because you accomplished something mighty on a bike that was not made for that. You are not a journalist for a magazine, or a factory test rider, but you have just proved to a lot of people that the Panigale is a durable, rideable bike. Plus they didn't have to spend a ton of money for it.
You deserve to be out there! You don't get publicity like that for cheap! lol
So, how about telling us about Ben!
