Thank you for your input. It helps to know you had an MTS. I rode a "10" 1200 and preferred my 05 s, not that I did not like the 1200, but as you said, different.

Looking for the +1 icon..... I can't believe Ducati is almost completely dropping the 2 valve air cooled motor, so much fun. One of the reasons I am looking at a Guzzi.
