    Love the cruise on my Triumphs and probably wouldn't buy a new bike for the street without it. Had a ThrottleMeister throttle lock on the Multi but watched it fly right off and into the woods last year while my son was in front of me. Never could find the damn thing. Will probably put an Atlas on it but they are not the same as the factory cruise and I'm not paying for an aftermarket cruise system at this point.

    I've got any easy cure for not needing cruise control. Don't ride roads where you would need or want one. :-)

    I try not to but it seems every other ride by the end of the day you're tired and one hour away from home if you just take the interstate... :)
    Or there is always the.. "well if we just take the interstate home I can spend an extra hour at the pool". :lol3 Sometimes you just have to keep mama happy.

    Congratulations. So exciting! Next month I'll have had mine for a year. Such an incredible machine.

    Thanks man! It's a trip for sure. Coming from a heavy Jap bike background, I never would have seen myself on the Tiger 800XC I had and for sure a Ducati. Feeling blessed.

    I hate to be nit picky, but that bike is clearly female. Pretty sure all Ducatis are. Sweet ride either way.

    You're probably right. I think the luggage without the color pieces on them make it look a bit chunky, more masculine. When they're off, she's one sexy bitch. Ok, she's definitely a female.

    Apologies for the intrusion, but can someone tell me the Fork Oil level on the 2010 Multistrada (50mm Marzocchis, or are they Sachs?), or point me to a suitable link?
    My Stelvio's getting a bit bouncy, I didn't touch the Oil when I fitted the 2010 Multistrada Forks to it, so it's probably overdue a change.

    Tried searching the web, and on here (not easy), with no luck.

    Many thanks.

    Did you try YouTube? Seems there's a "fix it" video for pretty much anything on YouTube.
