Looking to purchase my first Ducati after a test ride on a 2010 MultiStrada. The back roads I ride on for my daily commute are too bumpy for comfort on bikes without big suspension travel. I ride year round, which for here is through a redwood rain forest in winter. I ride off pavement when a vehicle is coming the other way on a narrow part of the road or when visiting up some neighbor's unpaved driveways...oh yeah, just remembered, my driveway is not paved either! Previously have owned Suzuki, BMW, Honda, and Kawasaki.
