2021 Ducati Multistrada V4S/Sport
This bike is substantially lighter than any of my BMWs, far easier to ride around town, and much more fun. I found myself never riding the Panigale, so I sold it. Down to 1 bike for the first time in 20 years. Yet, it will still carry 2 people with luggage, in reasonable quiet and comfort. It's been a few places already, with more to come. Alaska anyone???
The first trip was to Lake Tahoe, with a photo op in Death Valley. As I have mentioned before, most motorcyclists consider the little sign that says "Park Off Pavement" as a suggestion (as well as quite a few other signs).
As for the Grand Canyon, this was Jan's first trip on this bike, and her first trip since the pandemic.
