What are you waiting for?
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
