After months of research, I finally decided that the 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 was just too risky due the amount of problems reported and significant downtime in dealerships for the 2010-2012 model. Plus it would be a few thousand more than the BMW with increased insurance costs also. Today I plonked down a deposit on the new GS with all the options including dynamic suspension, LED headlights, cruise control, wire wheels, etc, etc. I will be getting my full license in May hence the reason for the delayed delivery, plus they are not shipping the first units until March/April anywayz. Think I am going to like this one....although lane splitting will be a bit more of a technical challenge as I schlep it into Sydney CBD every day. I think I might be able to ride over the cars anyway. Now I have to sell my 2012 Versys 650L, should be fun.
