Hello from Hastings in the UK.
So, after crashing and writing off my 1260 Multistrada in July this year, I decided, after much research and a test ride, to replace it with the DesertX.
I am very pleased with the new bike. Feels a lot lighter, handles very well indeed, better gearbox, better quick shift, and lots of fun. So, very different to the old one, it has required a bit of an adjustment to the way I ride, but very well suited to the type of riding I do.
