Thank you one and all.
After three consecutive Sprint models this almost felt like a betrayal... until I twisted the Multi's throttle. Then I got over it.
LD riding should be a lot easier physically with the sit up riding position, and I'm stunned at how quickly and effortlessly the Multi gets through a corner, though the fuel range may be a tad less than the frugal Triumph.
Yep, every road is a good road, even the really shite ones!
Sold the Triumph on Sunday. It's nice to know it's going to a good home though it may well have done it's last IBA ride as the new owner doesn't see that as part of his future.
So just browsing the results of the 2018 Pikes Peak Hill Climb and Ducati Multistrada finished 1st in PP Heavyweight and 10th fastest overall..they also finished 3rd in class split by the KTM 1290 Super Adventure...wonder if there's been any local "competition" yet...
