    I just rode one and it has to be the most boring incredibly powerful engine ever... I'd go with the Multi and maybe keep a backup bike for when it's in the shop.

    Boring?! Maybe it is not a bike's fault?

    Re: Luxo sport tourers

    Weird. The 1200S did not have any of the power lag / dead spot issues they describe. The damn thing hit like a 5928# hammer from go to redline. The motor is smooth as can be all the way up until the shift lights start flashing too.
    And that sound!!!! Positively loved blipping those downshifts. It barked once or twice as well. I'm pretty sure I left that bike with a dent in the tank.

    But alas, there is no fugging way I'd actually own one. Just no way. Will not justify the price of entry nor do I trust it to run when I want it to. Too many stories of flaky electronics and such.

    The FJR was different. But 9/10ths as good for 5/10ths the $ (when shopping the used market). Probably my next. Probably a gen 3: 2013+.

    Wait.. I suck at betting. If I purchase before, even on 12/31/2017 I lose.. right?
    Then I change my bet to 10/15/2017.

    If you loved the Multi, you should try the Super Adventure.

    Re: Luxo sport tourers

    I never should have tried the multi. One of those ignorance is bliss things. I feel the same way about the 1290 SA. I just don't want to go there. I'm simply not interested in putting that much $ into a motorcycle. Far too many other priorities.

    Re: Luxo sport tourers

    how much longer is a 20ishK bike going to force you to be employed?
    different strokes, for sure. over here I'm hoping I can keep my asshole clamped shut until my car is paid off, but it's not looking too promising.
    I gots the fever.

    I think the hard limit on what I can stomach tying up in a toy like this is $10k.
    Naturally I'll spend another $2k plus making it mine. (Springs, maybe a shock upgrade, extra luggage, farkles.)

    Re: Luxo sport tourers

    May make the decision easier by including Total Cost of Ownership (ex: bike + 3 years service costs + expected $$ for upgrades). I know it seems dry but you may find one that’s at first seems outside your budget but in the long run may be a better fit.

    Rode em back to back. Enjoyed the engine on the Multi much more. The BMW was fast but totally a snooze. Maybe it's been too long since I rode an inline 4, maybe not my thing anymore. I prefer the "character" of a triple, V twin, or V4 now I guess.

    The v-twin on the multi is STUNNING. Enchanting exhaust note. Very playful engine. Smooth as silk.
    That motorcycle is very, very easy to ride quickly.

    NH Craigslist
    $13k with all the luggage:
    Ducati Multistrada - motorcycles/scooters - by owner - vehicle automotive bike sale
    $12k with luggage:
    2012 Multistrada S Touring - motorcycles/scooters - by owner - vehicle automotive bike sale

    Both under 10k miles. Both are not the Dad shoes which embody the FJR.
