Everytime you joke about seals, I have an urge to kill on and burn it, releasing even more CO2.

If it makes you feel any better, Terblanche was somewhat demoted a while back.

Oh, Alan Jenkins designed the Desmosedici, not Terblanche.



I've been a Terblanche critic from the first time I saw the redesigned Supersports. I never cared for the 999 and my opinion of the Multistrada was always that 3/4 of the bike was gorgeous. From 270 degrees of viewing, the bike looks great. It's those 90 degrees around the front that cause problems. Nonetheless, I just picked up a 2004 MTS1000DS to replace my older, carbed Monster and I couldn't be happier. The looks have grown on me and I can't see much of the front end from the saddle. It's a great bike and the rave reviews aren't an exaggeration. It's looks may not light my fire like my lightly customized Monster, but the ride makes up for it.

Bad news bro. In addition to my rental car, I also have access to a ZX-14, Ninja 650R and new ZX-6R in Daytona this year. If you'd care to throw down on your little brother; I promise I'll only ride one-handed

Blah, blah, blah. I do get tired of people with next to no knowledge of what it actually costs to maintain a Ducati whining on and on about the maintenance costs. If you commute 10,000 miles or more per year, then yeah, it would get expensive. If you ride 3-7,000 miles like most of us (statistics say the average is only 2500) then it really isn't that bad. At a good dealer, it's $5-600 every 7500 miles. Big deal.



I just bought (a used) one and couldn't be happier.

In my humble opinion, you're not sport-touring if you're on the interstate. It is true that the Multi does let a fair amount of wind blast to hit you on the freeway. I am 6'0" and the wind is noticable but not bad at 80 mph. It starts to get bothersome as you get close to 90. To me that's acceptable, but then again, I've been riding a Monster for the past few years. I am not a hard core distance rider, but I do the occasional 400 mile day and plenty 200-250 mile days. I avoid the interstate whenever possible. If time dictates that I have to take the intersate, the Multi will be an improvment over the Monster. I guess my point is that if you ride a standard or naked, you'll appreciate the protection. If you ride a Gold Wing or Electra Glide, you'll wonder if there even is a fairing.



The rear of the bike is gorgeous. The front does have some issues, but it does grow on you and looks better in person.
