Ok, I was going to wait until I had pictures, but I'm too excited to sleep.

Signed a deal for a 2013 Ducati Multistrada today and will pick it up tomorrow. I'll post some pictures once I have some.

Looking forward to some riding this summer. I sold my BMW to a good home last year and have been missing it.

Mike

Sweet bike! I was just drooling over the MTS at the moto shop last week. Congrats on the new ride.

Sweet, went with the Grantourismo I see, you'll love it! Spent some time on an S model, Skyhook is pretty trick.

Did you have a chance to check out the standard MTS at all?

I picked it up in a snow storm. Be a few weeks before my schedule will allow me to ride it.

AKDucs, thanks for the link. I'll ride with just about anybody.

Will put up pics tonight.

Mike

I've been thinking about a Duc myself lately and have been since I was smitten by the 916 monoposto. Will probably slot one in before much longer and have been thinking hard about it lately.

Haven't quite had the nads to pull the trigger though. Congrats!

Maybe not the nads, but you certainly have enough for a Ducati t-shirt or two!

Here's the garage shot. It'll be tough walking past this for the next couple of weeks.

Legion,
If Tom's bike doesn't do it for you, TMC has a couple of Multis. The have a 2011 S and a 2013 Standard.

Also, the new Hyperstrada is very nice (although the bags are a bit chintzy). AK Cycle Center has one on the floor.

Mike

Thanks Brendon,
I thought pretty hard about the 2011 you guys have, but I really wanted to try the Skyhook suspension.

Tom, did you put a different exhaust on yours? Looks great!

And since Legion mentioned he's long appreciated the Ducs of 916 lineage...

Odd as hell but a high number of these Duc's are bought but never spanked.

I found another one that's six years old and has 300 miles on the clock. 1100S / hyper.

Seriously thinking about getting my wife a second job. It's that important.
