New to me 2015 Multistrada 1200S touring
I just bought a Multistrada 1200S touring. I bought it online (sight unseen from a dealership) except for a good description from the sales guy and a walkaround video.
It's kind of scary, but I've done this once before with my monster S2R1000 and it worked out beautifully.
I'm going to be picking it up on a trailer this Saturday, and I have a trip scheduled for the 4th of July. Nothing major (338 miles to my best friends house for the weekend). He recently bought a Yamaha Super Tenere, so I guess we are going to give this touring bike thing a go.
The bike itself has the 2 side bags, and a titanium termignoni, and other than that it appears to be stock.
I have been buying things online for the bike (I think I need an intervention), but I just wanted to see what some experienced people think I may want to look into. Be it must have gear that I need to get, or anything in particular with the bike that I need to know about.
What I have on order at this time:
The top case (dealer found the 3rd cylinder lock under the seat. Thank GOD!)
top case covers
kickstand foot upgrade (larger)
dual USB hella outlet with built in voltage meter
Ram mount cup holder
Ram mount cell phone holder
Pannier liner bags
AGV Modular helmet
Cardo pack talk slim JBL
I'm not worried about boots right now. It's hot as hell, and I'm really picky. It's going to take me a while to figure out exactly what I want in those.
Are there any must have items other than this that I am REALLY going to wish I had for the trip, or will definitely want in general?
