Re. price, is that before tax/title/license/setup/delivery, or after? And are you getting a '10 or '11 (I assume '11)?

It's after setup/delivery/low seat, before tax, title, license for a 2011 model.

It is never boring.

I think it would be a much shorter list, and you may be the only one on it as I've not heard of anyone else going 1200 Multi -> BMW GS. Both are very good bikes though, so it's all good.

If it's rpm quibbles your on then the reflash should get it. I'm pretty finicky myself but this thing runs superb for me so I can't complain. I get it though as a lot of 2010 owners had the same issue. Maybe I'm happy to have mine cause it's a 2011. But if it's a beemer or the like your'e after owning a Ducati isn't going to stop you. Side note though, my bike has been more reliable than the 2010 GS gang I ride with on occasion and my maintenance is way less but I'm out of pocket more on the front side I guess.

Oh yeah, did you get it back yet??

No, still waiting to get her back. I should get it this weekend. There is no denying that the MS is a great bike and thats why I ordered it so long ago and got one of the first ones in the USA. I guess i'm just pissed off at having to deal with the poor fueling for so long and not knowing if it was ever going to be fixed. I was misinformed that a full Termi system would cure the problem. That was $2,500 down the drain after I'd already spent $650 for the Termi slip-on because I didnt love the look of the stock exhaust. I'm sure it will run great when I get it back. It might change my mind but I've just got that sour taste in my mouth which is hard to get rid of. Its a bummer because I've always wanted a Ducati with a comfortable riding position but could never come to like the previous Multistradas looks.

My 2010 with the reflash fuels near perfect. Although stock exhaust, so not a fair comparison, and I have only rode 6000' of elevation and above. My wife and I did a little two up trip, maybe 80 miles or so, last weekend, mainly at low revs due to gravel on the road and her first ride on the Multi. I had no complaints on the fueling, unlike before where it would surge and sometimes be downright scary.

The difference between a non-flashed 2010 and a 2011 model is night and day. Hopefully you will be satisfied with yours after its repair.

GS? Great bike if you like heavy and boring. Kidding!

Sounds like a K13S is in your future no matter what. Another great bike indeed given people's reports on them.

Take care and best success,

I've put about 500 miles on my 2010 MTS since the reflash. The surging between 2.5k to 4k RPM is gone. Also, the front ABS doesn't cycle under moderately heavy braking anymore. I haven't been able to get it to cycle at all on clean pavement, since the reflash. It comes close to lifting the rear wheel. No stalling either. The bike runs just about perfectly now.

Just had mine re-flashed yesterday and it runs fantastic. The stalling was a bigger issue for me, glad to have it remedied.

I rode a 2010 demo and noticed the fuelling issue, but my 2011 has been spot-on (though it does have the full-Termi). I think you'll be happy with your bike after the reflash.

I've owned both, and there's no way the GS is lighter than the Multi 1200. Where did you get these figures?

Dry weight:

BMW GS - 203kg
Multi 1200 - 189kg

No clue where your numbers come from. Mine come from the manufacturers web sites.

Maybe liquids weigh more in the Multi than in the GS. It must be that the Italians use "heavy" water in the radiator that weighs 14kg/l.
