    Was tired of going back and forth to the dealer for the flaws of my 1200 MUltistrada (bought used)
    and
    Did not want to wait to see the reviews and road test of the upcoming 2013/2014 1190 Adventure R
    so
    I just traded my MTS for a brand new 2012 990 Adventure in White.
    I'm gone get my bike in 2 days. But only one or two weeks left to the riding season here :2cry:2cry:

    Congrats! The 1200MTS was in my considerations but I passed on it. I used to be a Ducati mechanic :rofl and can only imagine how bad things could go wrong

    he said "hippo hands" :lol3

    I was thinking the MS was a cool bike, but the number of recalls and dealer support just pushed me away. Test road a KTM 990 SMT and Adventure and liked the Adv better so That is what I went with. Had some problems but they are the fault of a bad Shoria battery and Ricks voltage regulator. The bike is just so dam fun :evil You should be happy
