Nope. Damn thing is stone stock and reliable as any bike I've owned.

But I do have a Ducati which 'required' $3k in mods to get it to run as it should have in the first place.

I sure hope Audi fixes the value to enjoyment ratio in the Ducati product plan from here on out.

Just be glad you haven't invested twice that dollar amount, in a bike that still doesn't meet your expectations, for fuck sake's you still own the damn thing.

I hope the last thing Ducati / Audi concentrate on, is matching or surpassing BMW's offerings,
apples and oranges anyways and always has been.

Audi bought Ducati

What that has to do with a GS isn't much, but it sure is interesting.

The new Multiblahblah will be a biturbo with the turbo's buried under and on the aft side of the motor making it impossible for the DIY'er to fix, and the auto height adjustment system will rely on airbags that blows the pump sporadically... My .02

I know what ya mean...
"I have a boil on my bum, but I ride a GS so only GS riders can advise me..."



Makes me wanna puke, then sell the GS and buy a KLR, wire a milk crate to the back and go about my business without being associated with a bunch of wankers..
