    WHOA awesome! I've thought about trading my Classic in for either a Desert Sled or an 1100. I should really give them a test ride. Unfortunately, with the weather here right now, I won't be testing anything any time soon!

    I wonder?? I sold my desert sled because the suspension was just not up to Colorado washboard roads. Loved the bike other than that.

    Although "bold new graphics" has become a bit of a joke about new bike offerings, Ducati has pretty much cemented their lead in that category with the build up to this bike.

    I had much higher hopes in a year where Ducati seemed to be on a roll with the new V4 multistrada. Well, at least you can pick up a t-shirt or hat to commemorate the new model.

    Has anyone tried the Hyperpro Streetbox kit? At 700-ish it seems like good value. It can’t possibly make the suspension any worse. Also, I just put a set of TKC70’s on. I got 2500 miles from the stock MT60’s.

    I have one, but haven't installed it yet. Will update later this month when I can give it a try.

    Excellent. I’ll wait for your report before pulling the trigger. Thanks!

    So I was unable to install the rear yesterday...

    That's the 8mm allen that I bent while trying to remove the bottom bolt. I'm going to get a quote from a shop and see if i really want to install it. If I end up deciding not to, then I'll just put it back on the market.
