I Ride: '13 MTS PP

Even with the suspension set stiff, it still "wallows" a bit under hard braking. But, I'm going to try and set it on 2 up with bags to see what that does. I'm taking it over to KFG next weekend for a basic set up too.

I Ride: Panigale R (2013), Multistrada S Pikes Peak (2013)
Decided to trade my 848 in for a Pikes Peak Multistrada. I was so impressed by how great this bike is on the twisties that my old faithfull 848 just had to go.

I really enjoy it. Easy to ride fast and then tame when you want it to be. It's a struggle sometimes deciding what to ride! Life's tough...

Hows the fueling on this bike?? I dumped my Diavel because the fueling (among other things) was just awful...

I test rode a 2012 and bought the 2013 PP. The '13 is much better. Really no complaints. It took a few rides to get it down though going back and forth to the 1199. Very different as you would expect. But, it's really smooth throughout the rev range.
Thanks from Stw

That's a nice bike Bronch. Everytime I try throwing a leg over one of those bikes reminds me that there are just certain bikes that I'm to short for and have to rule out.
Thanks from bronch

True, I can't stop flat footed. You can lower it, but that would screw up the geometry. What about the Hypermotard? That was a blast when I test rode it. Hooligan bike, like you!

The Pani is next in line. I tried the KTM 990? Super Enduro a couple years back, couldn't even pick it up off its sidestand. I think you had to be a minimum of 6' to ride o e of those.
