Why don't you see if your dealer has a demo Multi you can ride, and if it feels different. I don't know know anybody, even experienced high-performance sportbike owners, who wasn't impressed with the power of the Multi 1200.

Personally, I would never attach anything to my Master key. Its big enough already. And there is absolutely no way I could even imagine the bulk and awkwardness of that monstrosity attached to the alarm remote. I'd probably just attach the alarm remote to a spare key that I would just use for the panniers/top box/fuel cap, and just leave my Master key permanently buried within my riding gear.

Six posts worth of consecutive hi-res photos of key fobs, mostly from other brands, and now two of license plate surrounds ... what the ???

We all have to download this junk every time we want to check out a new post on the page, or navigate through this page in the thread.

I have difficulty believing this would be considered helpful just about anywhere, but perhaps I lack imagination.

For me, a single hi-res pic of the best example, or alternatively a few thumbnails, and then some links would be much more respectful.

As for the "for sale" stuff ...

WoW!

Thanks for posting this. I NEVER thought anyone was going to produce a 180 knobbly. At $200+ it ain't cheap, but it's a start!

Let's hope the other guys jump in and we start seeing Anakee's, Tourances, etc., for our steed soon.

Good news on the TKC-80, although perhaps a tad agressive for a rear tire (I really like the Distanzia front i put on).

There will be a rear Distanzia available early this year.

It will probably be SM tread compound (like the 160/60 Distanzia), so tread life not too great.

However, I used Distanzias on my Uly (rear was a bit of a stretch) and liked them a lot! Good news to see some more tire options for the "faux-ADV" style bikes
