Our rider from Dallas, TX said his bike should be delivered by June 8. This works out good for him joining us. He'll be up here through August.

I'll be up at Bellevue Ducati getting some work done today(Saturday). I just might have to test ride a Pani for awhile.

That's great cause the more the mo better!

How long is awhile for a test ride?

I gotta get mine in for a check up, oil change, map update, and probably switch to the 41T kit.

Man the forum spam is way outta control! Gonna have to resort to just PM soon.

Just finished the test ride on the Pani. First impression was "DID MIKE PUT A MTS UNDER ME?"
Wow not used to sitting upright. Don't see how some complain that there's too much weight on their wrist. I'll discuss more in depth when we all meet up. My bikes ready.

Multistrada? Your'e crazy. When you're 5' nothing you shouldn't complain about the riding position! Between the ride height and comfort seat my cog was off and I was uncomfortable. All fixed now.

I'll be checking in here from time to time, but the spam has just made this place untenable. Pm or call/text me if anything changes with the ride.

Getting my 600 mile service and the 41 tooth installed this Tuesday at motocorsa. Can't wait to get it back.

Also going to add the cylinder heat covers, but leave off the new exhaust heat cover. The heat doesn't bother me too much, and while I know the majority of it comes from the exhaust, that heat shield is just so damn fugly. I don't mind the cylinder covers though...so I figure it has to help a bit.

It was 57 degrees on my ride. The heat was nice and comforting with my riding gear on.
