The weather finally broke

The weather finally broke. The roads were dry, and the sun was shining so I took the TV on her maiden voyage.

Going from my 1200GS to my Multistrada I was amazed how much smaller, lighter and more powerful the Multistrada was.

The Turismo is even smaller. man this is a little bike. Not in a bad way, but it is very compact.

I think the bars are too high and too close for my liking. An inch or two lower and further forward would suit me better. Im looking into replacing the bar risers with a set of Multistrada units that look like they will fit.
I need to check the clearance of the hand guards in relation to the front fairing to make sure it all clears.

The motor, transmission and quick shifter are all brilliant. Even though I haven't revved past 6k RPM yet.

the bike isn't as brutal of a beast as the Multistradas are, and thats to be expected. I used to call the Ducati the Scalpel to my buddy's Anvil BMW. The Scalpel nomenclature now belongs to the spritely MV with the Ducati somewhere in-between .

I need to sort out my Givi Tanklock bag but I am getting mixed info on the proper part number (BF-02 or BF-05)

And for the love of God will someone come up with a elegant solution to running a top case. I don't even use saddlebags anymore (not that I could afford the ones from MV even if they could supply them)

Overall its a neat, and unique motorcycle that I had no business buying, and I truly did not need it.
At the same time I don't regret my purchase.

You may also need to check the clearance on the tank side... as it is quite narrow between the lower attachement and the tank when the handlebar is turned (I would say 1 cm)...

I bought a second hand set of Multistrada Bar mount to give a try with. should be here in a few days.
Ive put about 200 miles on the bike now and the bar position doesn't irritate me as much as it did at first, but I want to try moving the setup anyway.

Looking forward for your experience. I remember to have check tank clearance and front clearance when I got the bike, having in mind the fact I'd like to put the handlebar a little bit lower and a little bit more in front: that was a no go due to the lack of clearance...
