There could be a 1k V-Strom involved, just put in a modified clutch basket, checked valve clearances, new plugs, and waiting on a K&N air filter. I'm counting on the K&N filter to give me the extra 50 hp I need to keep up with a Red Duc!

That Multistrada is an awesome bike. I'm not sure how Ducati does it, but I was on a Ducati Monster a few months ago that would also carry the front wheel until it hit the rev limiter, and only a foot off the ground.

I made a vroom, vroom sound on a Ducati once and got a stern warning from a police officer.

Treemuncher & I had a fantastic ride yesterday in Humphries/Perry County. We started out in some kinda gnarly stuff & ended on lots of incredibly scenic gravel & pavement. It's too early to run out to the garage & check the trip meter but, we did around 130 miles. We passed up some interesting Quad trails that could probably use further exploration but, that entire area is in need of further exploration if you ask me. Sorry no one else could make it but, there's always next time.

Video soon to follow.

The Ducati will be in the back going slow on the gravel and dirt , it's that Yamaha you need to worry about. Now in the straight aways on blacktop ?

havent you heard that any flow advantage a k&n gives you is negated by the dust and grit that flows through the filter?

I've had to follow 2fast since we were kids. Destroying an engine is a small price to pay if it means being able to stay a little closer to him when we ride. Plus, I plan to sell it to SandalScout this spring, so......

I have the perfect thing to slow him down. If I'm at the LBL campout, I'll bring it. Do not ask any further questions. Just trust me.
