Good to see other Rallye's out there.

Picked mine up last Friday, and the 600 mile service was done Thursday.

I heard only 200 Rallye bike were imported to the US, anyone got the numbers?

Undermoose, can you do a close up shot of the GPS? Mine is on back order and I like to see the view from the riders viewpoint.

Unfortunately I never got a shot of Ms Piggy swimming near upside down in a bog hole - the dirt from that took months to get off.

Actually when I think about it, my bike is never clean - despite my best efforts

Ooooh...OHLINS! Ride report requested. Do you have them hooked up to the ESA (electronic) or are they manually adjustable only? The ESA Ohlins set-up is one spendy upgrade but something I will do when my OEM springs get tired.

Best investment you can make imo. The difference between Ohlins and stock is immediately apparent. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to knock stock, they are fantastic as well. Ohlins is just that next level is all.

I did not go with ESA, so they are the manual adjust (just my personal preference).

Besides, with the Multistrada S I get the electronically controlled Ohlins
