Just got back from a 2000mi tour of Texas, through the Twisted Sisters and Big Bend national park. Still with a paper tag on the Multistrada.

Today I removed the melted boot material off my pipe. PO lost the guard and I'm not sure when I'll be able to drop 2 bills for a replacement. Also gave it a fresh coat of Mother's.

Got my new 2017 1200s back from 1000+ Km servicing, new full Termi installed, and faring gap warranty repair. I'm 100% happy now and love the extra grunt of the full Termi. Well worth it!

Tweeked the shifter lever, tried to roll the bar a bit forward (only so much space before it hits the screen) Got the new SCU installed (pretty sweet) and cleaned up and lubed the chain.

There is some oddity with the riding position that puts my right hand on pins and needles, and quickly and damn if I can figure out what it is, its only happening on the Mutli, only then on downhills where I am putting a lot of pressure on my wrist with the brake. Its very strange and I have tried to adjust everything to get it to stop.

I have a 2000km tour starting Saturday, get back Thursday night, and turn around for a 1000-1200 two day (650 there, crash and however I decide to get home event). 650km of chained mountain passes, no highways, no toll roads. I'll likely take the Super Duke for the twist-a-thon, its easier to manage in tight stuff, lighter and 650km on Japanese roads means that I need to keep up a good pace if I don't want to get to the barn at like 11pm (rolling out a 5am) I did a 500km version last year and 12 hours made us top 10 completion time....so I am aiming for 14-15 hours.

Then get a shower and have a couple whiskeys.

This morning, I dropped the Multi for the first time while pushing it out of the garage. Got lazy and didn't put the kick stand up, which caught on the lip of the concrete.

The Givi top case caught the side of the house and scratched it up pretty good.

The good news - I'd just put on my Barkbusters last night, and had added SW Motech crash bars a few weeks back. Good timing I suppose!

Now to touch up all that concrete rash...

That sucks sorry to here that happened. I too just put those on mine along with a givi top box for that just encase something like that would happen. It's a tall bike and me not so much, so good to here it works and is worth it. Here is a picture of mine with them added.
