Congrats on the 2nd place finish and carrying the Ducati flag. Back when I was doing long distance rides, BMW dominated. Competition is a good thing.These are my latest pics from finishing the HW3 Rally, or the How the West Was Won Rally out of Grand Junction, CO. Little dirty after riding over 1700 miles in 32 hours. My route took me through CO, corner of UT, WY, MT, and returned to CO. Finished 2nd overall out of 50+ entrants. 1st was a GSA, 3rd was an FJR. So many manufacturers represented.
Did a BBG 1500 mile ride in 22 hours on a BMW GS Adventure. That big tank was a requirement. There is no doubt the 5 gallon tank on the MTS is just too small when time is everything. The enduro at almost 8 gallons is an improvement. But, for rallies or extreme rides, I prefer a rear tank like you installed. Had a F800GS with the camel tank.
Again, congrats on the finish. That's a great accomplishment.
