My dealer (Motofit, in Danbury) had gotten the front fork replacement (for the clunk), as well as replacement of tires (OEMs were worn in the middle after about 4K) While it was there, the rear wheel sensor recall came up. They got it, and had the bike about a week. (Main delay was waiting for tires, and then lousy weather).

In the interim, they loaned me a Streetfighter. Was a lot of fun, but when I got back on my Multi, I knew I owned the right bike for me.

Sadly, literally the day after I rode home, the CT DOT started putting brine down on the roads. My Multi is safely tucked away, waiting for either a break in the weather, or the spring.

2013 Multistrada S

Just finished a deal to buy a new 2013 Multistrada S Touring. After 14 years on BMW (1999 BMW R1100S and 2005 R1200GS), I'm looking forward to the Ducati.

I've done some homework on this model but thought I'd check with the board for a summary of do's and don'ts for this model. Any major concerns?

I welcome your feedback!! Can't wait for spring!!

Works just like in the video. No issues. Install/set up is easy. Gets the bike up in the air in seconds. Also great for moving the bike around the garage with ease. Great set up.

2010 Multi S Touring

Just got my 2010 MTS delivered the other day. Sold my '07 KTM 990 Adv to an inmate this fall after moving back to Kansas & no trails to ride on.

We have had snow since the Duc got here, so I haven't even ridden it yet!

Pretty stoked and can't wait for riding weather. I do my own maintenance & mods (have a small hobby machine shop), so will be looking for advice & tips here and on ducati.ms.

Later

Is it just me or is the 38k confirmed miles or the 42k unconfirmed miles being the most miles put on a multi sad for a 4 year old adventure bike? Either all the high mileage riders have never been on any forum or guys just like the eye candy of a Ducati in the garage? I know this is a global site & weird nobody in the freaking whole world has high mileage on a multi??? I know Harley Davidsons are used as a punch line for many jokes but @ least some of their owners ride the damn things. Guys put hundreds of thousands of miles on em.... Again someone please prove me wrong!!!

I got 20k in a year. Your point? If I were still in cal, that would be double. But I live in the north cascades now. You have heard of weather right? Snow? Maybe not. (PS. I have 2 other street bikes. Want to know the mileage on those as well?)
