    Im talking conversion to 21" front wheel, longer legs etc. I loved the concept when they first came out, have owned more Ducatis than I can count, but so far have no regrets that I bought something that can wear real dirt-oriented rubber on narrow-ish rims and has 10" of travel. Anyone been tinkering with Mother Nature and re-defining the bikes skill set?

    My dual sports have always had 21 in front tires. Have a friend that rides a dual sport HD Sporty that does really well without 21 in and a friend with the Honda NXC 700 that does not have it. Both of them ride extremely well!

    People ride R1s and similar bikes through every type of terrain imagineable, but respectfully that is a discussion for another thread. I'm specifically interested in Multistrada 1200s that have basically been modified into the modern version of the bike I think they should have built - the Elefant.
