Because sometimes you need to. For me the MM is much more than a back roads blaster, it is much more versatile than that. Most people that know me would say I ride my bike pretty hard as well, but...

My wife has one, in terms of leg room I can't say it's an awful lot different to my Bonneville. But, it feels much smaller, is lighter, revs quicker, turns better, is faster and brakes better. It's a...

The Bonneville comfortably and reliably does 150 miles to a tank, I've taken mine over 160, but I did put 15 litres into the 16 litre tank, so getting close.

Yep, this is Ducati number six, interspersed with Guzzi, Laverda, Moto Morini, Aprilia, and even a Segale, so very familiar with Italian foibles and idiosyncrasies. :evil

Easy comment, but this isn't about Ohlins type quality, the suspension out of the box doesn't even ride as nicely as my daughter's stock, ten year old, SV650. It didn't have to be that way, and just...

Heavy weight bar end weights will cure 90% of the vibes on the F800R. Of the ST / GT / S / R versions, the bar set up on the F800R is the one most prone to vibes. I used F800ST bar end weights on my...
