    Well your a strange individual what every the fucking name your going under these days. I'v only put one vid on this site of mine and that way back in 13 about recoding sound from autocom to drift cameras. Spookily enough it was of my mate riding his old multistrada.


    And your point any was fucktart!

    So getting back to the thread

    Thanks for the feed back gents, booked in for a test ride in the morning on a very nice 1200s with 150 miles on the clock. Will report back tomorrow evening.

    Cheers Andy

    Turn those places around and you'd have the sales figures, nearly.

    Thanks for your advice gents but due to financial circumstances I will have to rule out the Multistrada just on Insurance cost alone. I was just about to set off to ride the bike and thought best just check what I can insure it for in case I do something silly like buy it! So I phone the wonderful wankers at Dedvitt my insurer for the last two years and ask the to confirm how many years no claims they are taking due to loss claim of the GS all 4 years they say (not us the underwriter they say)? so cheapest quote I can get and its company I have never heard of is £1865!!!!!!!!!!

    So Att may be right looks like a fooking 20 year old cheap Austrian moped for me for the next few years.

    Having had a number of Ducati's including a Multistrada my opinion is they are great bikes. Like any marque they are really only as good as your dealer and I have had great service from WM Snells in Alton, MotoRapido are my closest Ducati main dealer but I have been there several times and they can hardly be bothered to say hello. I had a 2014 MTS1200GT, which really was great bike, my brother in law has the base model and has a huge mileage on it. Reliable and reasonable servicing costs IMO.

    I chopped my MTS & F800GS for a 1200GSA as it was daft having two similar style bikes. One of my pet hates is chains so that was a big factor i going with the GS.

    I think if you are commuting why would you bother with a chain, if you are a weekend warrior then the MTS is the way to go.

    Your dead right on that one, tried two dealers first one told me to not Park mi car their parking s for bikes?

    Went on Saturday morning to pull the trigger on a nearly new 1200s at another dealer but couldn't get near the staff, due to a very irate customer screaming that he had had the bike less than 4 months and they had it back 6 times and if they didn't sort it this time he would leave it in the beeping door step as it was no beeping good to him. ( Coincidentally the first time I have ever taken my daughter into a bike dealership). So that set my mind back to the GS, back in the car run back to Rainbow good deal made new Rallye Sport to collect next Thursday.
