I'm trying to get a guy here at work to consider the 1190, but he has Ducati on the brain. He owns two Ducatis and one MV Augusta (all sportbikes). Keeps saying he's considering a Multistrada. I'm like, dude, that is NOT a dual sport. Do you really want to take one of those off-pavement???
My FZ1 is one of those bikes that isn't a lot of fun to go slow on. It likes to be run. It's great for commuting, but I stick to my DR650 for when I go riding for fun.
