I'm still looking for a bike to kick it around Japan on... there is a guy selling what appears to be a stock '04 1K for $7K. Has ~14K km on it... been trying to find out if this is a decent price, but there aren't a lot of used ones out there... off to Google.

I like the MultiStrada and think they are good looking bikes if I didn’t already have perfection I would be in the market for one!

I test rode the 620 multistrada - nice bike, but got a V-Strom due to it's capabilities and reliability.

Currently awaiting new belts, coming from Dubai in a couple of days.

I do like this bike. Only ridden it once because of the age of the belts but it was great.


I test rode one before buying the Tiger. Really liked it but the Tiger was about $4 less. I do love the Tiger but would like a MS someday.

If I could own more than just one bike....wait I do own more than one bike!

Anybody want to buy a really nice Ninja 500?? You see that would keep the cylinder tally in sync for me! 3-2-1

Didn't your momma ever tell you if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything?

I test rode the Wee strom, nice scooter but I bought the Tiger 'cause it'll blow the frickin fenders off of a Wee!

You wee folk are much too cultish.

I just brought mine home last night. I had been looking for the "right" one for quite a while. The one I found is an '07 S with a full Arrows exhaust, DP ECU, DP jell seats, DP bags and tail box, and a lot of extra carbon bling. Oh yea, 1600 miles.

finally...my first pseudo ADV bike! MTS 1100s

have been a lurker for some time, finally decided to do something about it, and it only took a single test drive. i got sick and tired of seeing too many happy faces arrive at the mountain destination on theirs while i was fighting back pain on my superbike. not sure where i'll take it, hopefully it will be ridden long and far, even if only in my part of the world.

mods so far include: DP handgrip covers, ST windscreen, DP mirrors, pro grip 714's, hypermotard footpegs/heel guards, rear cowl, garmin zumo gps, fenda extender, comfort gel seat, and a host of carbon. still waiting on the "sailwa66" skidplate and motonamics gps mount.

enjoy!

The black wheels are much better than the grey on mine.

^ the mirrors are by Ducati Performance and are not the stock ones. the oem ones are much larger and a bit taller as well.

Just put my deposit down on a nearly new 2007 with 3/4 of the warranty left. I was bitten by a 2008 1100S a few months ago but couldn't justify the price new. I was really thinking about a new 800GS but couldn't get excited by the BMW or the price. I also thought of a Wee but well you know .

Anyway the DR is going out the door this spring and a plate will be returning to the WR for really dirty work.

All I have to say about the Multistrada is č bella!

Ech!

My wife calls my bike "Mona Lisa". Of all the tomfoolery!

Well, 'ere's the reason:

Took my last run on the BMW Rockster toward Hattar MotorSports. It was a nice long run. Snatched the tailwind of a guy riding a sweet Ducati Desmosedici RR. OOf, what an awesome sound!

Arrived at Hattar. Saw a Multistrada. Haggled down to a good price. It was a sweet near zero mileage '06 black Ducati Multistrada 1000 S. Been sitting in the showroom for two years all due respect to Ducati bringing out the new 1100 models. Everyone ignored the bike far too long. I've decided to take it and bid farewell to this Rockster of mine. It's now in the hand of some lucky bloke who bought it off from Hattar. Hope he's riding it well, it's a great bike but too hefty and wide!

I don't look back and I just LOVE the Ducati. My wife loves it. It's quick and smooth. Then again, why does she called it "Mona Lisa"? Well, the bike's italian and no one wants the actual painting. Am I right?

:)

Well now that the Sport Touring models are gone from the line up, I am really starting to appreciate this bike.
