Service

Just had my 600 mile service done (at 712) on my 2012 MTS1200 and I feel like the bike is smoother and a bit more settled. Not sure if it is me or if it really is different. The same thing occurred when my Triumph had its first service. It was an hour long ride home mostly on 495 . The extra 2500 rpm are nice though

I always liked the Traxx cases. Will have to put them on my Hyper.

Love the Trax cases, if they worked with the stock top box rack, that's the way I would have gone...

Got my bike back yesterday from the dealer (thankgoodness, 20s and heavy snow today). Finally got the computer reflashed to the current version and not the ABS version. Ran great on the way home, new 14/43 combo helps a lot. Sixth gear was usuable at highway speeds, and managed to get a couple of small wheelies out of it in first. Much smoother throttle response and way less surging than preflash/gears.

Those spoked wheels are works of art.....but the price makes my eyes bleed!


EDIT - just saw that the rims are forged aluminium.......steel would have been the better choice.

TKC 80s

Just curious if anyone has tried the TKC 80s on the Multi 1200. I could not resist the temptation of the knobbly on the Duc. I ordered a set and should get them mounted up in a week or 2. I figured I would give them at least one try. They look bad ass. Cant wait to see them on the bike. Cant wait to hit some dirt as well.

Have a set on order and trying to get into the country as we speak.
ADVrider had a thread / posts with pics and YT video of a black MTS going offroading with TKC80 but did a search a while ago and can not locate the post / thread anymore for whatever reasons.....

Badass looking, but I couldn't bring myself to off-road such and expensive bike.

Just take it off pavement and let the fun begin. I swore Id never do that to mine. Then in VA I ended up on a dirt road and before we knew it, we were to far in to turn around. Ended up doing about 6 or so stream crossing, the biggest being about 20 yards wide and 15 inches deep. Was some of the most fun I ever had. Last month I did a good 25 miles, again not planned, on a very narrow dirt/rock path in WV. I really enjoy the dirt roads and believe the tires are the only thing holding the MTS back from being a good bike for this. Once I found the TKC 80s in sizes to fit the MTS I could not help myself. Plus how good they look. I have a set sitting in my basement now, will be getting them mounted up in the next week or 2. I cant wait to see them on the bike and take a ride.

You need to try these tires!

I did a little 12,000 mile trip to the Arctic Circle in June on my 2013 Granturismo.
I put the TKC's on in Fairbanks.
They were fantastic! Handled well. Awsome in the mud.
You don't buy a bike this capable and not use it. Have a little fun! It's only money!
