Default Re: Bike Suggestions - Similar to Ducati ST3

I'd just keep the '05 and look for something interesting to beat up around town. My first thought would be a BMW GS800. It'll be slower than the ST3 but it'll do everything plus you can just beat the snot out of it. And it's easy to work on, looks cool, isn't on every street corner, etc. Damn, I'm gonna check out Trader Online right now and see if I can find one for me. Maybe I'll pick me up an old Guzzi 500 or 650. Yeah, to hell with new; keep the nearly new and add vintage.

Know if the 2007 is worth trying to get over the 2006 model?

I live in SD not KMitty. Since I am one of the grand poobas of the GPTB, you are actually required to visit and bring gifts.



I hope non of you are planning to have guacamole at your Superbowl Parties cuz it's so freakin' cold right now the Avos are freezing.

Looks like Knut is only doing 11% of the posting on this thread. A really slow day.

Oops, didn't see the distructo comments about the dead '05. By all means get the '07 if you liked the '05 so much. I'd really take a look at the Uly too. Finally got to ride one. What a great seat! Although I'm 6'1" I have a short inseam. The '06 I rode was a high seat model and took a bit for me to paddle it around the lot. The suspension sag was ok at a stop light but I'd like the '07's lower seat.

We are having record cold this year with 100 year old records being broken. Somehow this will all be blamed on human caused global warming.

Multistrada 1100... Two valve simplicity, and a better all arounder... But it retains the ducati character...
