After what I saw I'm 100% sure that this will be my next bike. I might be weird but I do love the looks of the new Multistrada.
It is time to find a new home for my C14

Sorry Ducati, but trying to see how ugly you can build a bike and still sell it isn't working for me.
I wouldn't take a 20K bike offroad, nor one with a 17" front wheel, so that aspect doesn't matter to me. And since it's going to be a road only affair, a K1300S with some side bags would be my choice of rides, should I ever want to spend 20 large on a touring bike.
Yikes, did I mention I thought it was ugly?
Moving back to FLORIDA! Lots in the garage, so help me clear out some of my:Random Ducati Parts

I do not know if I seriuosly want to sell my Multi, but why would I ever ride it with the new 1200 on the way. Maybe I will transform it into a sidecar rig and ride my dogs around in it with studded tires on snow days.
