    That's great, it's a bike that was on my short list but I couldn't pass up a '13 Multistrada that came up locally. After the recent 15K service which is belts, desmodromic valve adjustment and plugs (for a really good price of $800! - usually close to 2x that) I had the thought that the V-Strom may have made more sense. But I'm happy and sounds like you are too. Hope you get many great miles and smiles from it.

    Congrats on the bike!!

    If they haven't been done already, you should consider a better seat, different windscreen, and most importantly, better suspension. Both the front and rear are too soft, especially for two-up.

    That is a good bike good choice. Looks like the passenger will be comfortable too. The V twin is very narrow and has better power delivery for the TYPE of riding YOU plan to do.
