Ducati Multistrada 1200 hardbag reflective decals | eBay

I bet this is what the fellow in the pic has on his ST1300 panniers. The guy on e-bay has been selling pre-cut reflective sticker kits for bikes forever. They are dark and almost invisible in daylight, but bright when hit with any artificial light (flash, headlight, etc.)

EDIT: Same link that Bull Rider posted.

Yes, still wiping off the dust, that later became mud as it rained a little over the weekend.

Mmmmmm I remember when I used to clean mine after every ride. Where did my love go? ;-)

robb Interesting thought re DTC and tire selection - never occurred to me that it would give you a lot more margin for error. I know on my mtn bike I've been running less and less aggressive tread patterns and am continually surprised at the levels of traction I can get if I finesse 'power' and braking action.

I'm running 34 F and 36 rear on the PR2s.

I get good fuel mileage because I'm a skinny bastard - 5'8'' and a buck 35. I had a buddy who I've been biking racing with for many years and we both had S4RSs and I would always get better mileage than him.

MTScott2 Does the DTC ABS negate the need for different tires ?Perhaps ..
Such an easy bike to ride and forgiving in the gentler modes...
I start out in urban for a quick warm up and switch when the urge hits me...
dirt and gravel one does not get too concerened about ...
Sport always puts the grin on and is pretty impressive ...
All this with Luggage too...
What could be more versatile...

thelumox 230 miles on a tank of gas!! wait till you try sport mode, you'll love it

just kidding and congrats! that's good mileage, must be the altitude. i've done 198 miles on the slab and put in 5.3 gallons.......low fuel light burning a hole in my retina for the last 30 miles

oh BTW..........you sir, have good taste in motorcycles (multi 12 and S4Rs)
