Hey Glenngineer,

We've got a red 1200 S Touring demo bike for sale in Rhode Island - Razee Motorcycle in North Kingstown. Look us up...

Offroad adaptations

Anyone offering offroad gear for the Multi? Crashbars, alum panniers, skid plate, 19" (or 21") front wheel, narrower rear rim to fit knobbies? Anyone seeing the possibility of adapting the wire wheel rims off a sport classic, longer forks off an elefant?
Such a machine might be the only thing that would pry my 990 from my fingers when it wears out?

Edit: Just found Altrider which has come to the party for protection - crashbars, bashplate, rack

Yes, I edited my post after I found them - they look great, now just need more suspension travel and skinny rims. Could make do with throwovers instead of aluminum panniers.

Touratech displayed aluminum cases on the MTS 1200 at Intermot.. Look for them in their catalog/website next year.

Can't picture the multi with Jesse's or touratech bags. It just ain't a GS (not ugly enough for those bags) and never will be!!!!!

Really well made stuff. I am very pleased with the build quality and design.

Sorta like a Ferrari morphed into a Panzer tank. I can halfway see that.

This MS really looks great and i would love to have a ride on it. But even if i got to ride it, I couldnt afford it. Im really envy about the power and maybe its a bit more comfy for the long "northcape" rides. What i dont like is all the electronics, maybe im wrong, but i se it as a fault at +50kkm.
Even if i got the money i would like to have the longer suspension as the KTMs.
In the winter im going to rebuild my 950 advs. In the hunt for the more power at long distance rides im going to put the RC8R engine in. It fits perfect at frame and swingarm. Only new enginemounts at front have to be made. That and a lot other customized stuff would make this a "modern" MS hunter ;-)

No flaming, I realy like the MS but ill go with the more offroad abilities.

Best regards
Mikael

Was ISAF 6 aug 08 and will be ISAF 12 aug 2011. Had a lot of good times with the Gunlinedudes at FOB Armadillo and the 81mm mortarcrews at FOB Keenan. All British ofcourse.

Divorced...

No house...living at the Base.

Paid a bit better than the lousy salary Brits get.

No girlfriend.

Bikes and cars a are taxed 180% in Denmark. If MS cost 10.000 the "licenseplate" would cost 18.000 + the MS price = 28.000
