Please, Multistrada 1000s package advice
I'd appreciate some feedback.
I'm new to the forum...
Looking to buy a new (2006) Multistrada 1000s DS in Seattle.
The package so far:
Ducati brand hard side bags.
Ducati brand touring windscreen.
Ducati brand comfort seat (gel).
Dealer installed Termi (i assume without the full package; only $1,250.00).
I actually prefer black but will probably go with red for visibility (safety).
The dealer suggested that I consider some kind of "slave" installation to help ease the stiff clutch for commuter use (easier on the front paw).
An important question: Are the instrument fuel guage issues solved ("when the gas gets low you will not know") on the 2006 models? As well, is the instrument display still subjet to moisture?
Although the package (with taxes and plates) will total very, very nearly $20,000, as it is, I do not want to keep going back to the dealer for more. Rather, I'd like to just buy the options now and get it over with. My beautiful wife is NOT one who suffers silently and so i'd like to minimize the frequency of that oppertunity
I would like to tour, some, and therefore would be interested in radar detector/mounting suggestions (I use a wireless Passport in my car currently) and GPS. The Ducati dealer told of a GPS sold in Europe which comes with wire harness and mounts designed especially for the Multi but not available in the US...
What am I missing?
Well, thats it then, please do offer your thoughts.
