An extraordinary Honda shop owner opened his shop to help us out during the holiday break, found a rear tire that could be fitted, but there was no compatible socket. Have you ordered yours yet? What are you waiting for?

Hello Dukefrog,

I just bought a 2012 Multistrada - got a good deal clearing out the 2012 models ready for the new '13's - maybe a purchase from the heart not the head!

I assume you got the socket from the Ducati dealer - how much did they rip you off for it?

I went for my first big run yesterday and love the bike, but I don't look forward to having to deal with Ducati service - local centre will cost me a day off to get the bike in there and get it serviced - and sounds high cost as well!

Certainly don't want to be locked into them for tyres as well.

Thanks for the advice
