Congrats @Roadsniper1.
Are you planning to add any accessories and/or modifications?
Yes I just ordered the top case and rear luggage rack from Unit Garage in Italy.


I'll let you know how it goes, but they are pretty popular in the BMW R9T community and I have successfully ordered stuff for my Urban GS from them.

Would like to do a slip on, crash bars and some Baja Designs lighting soon.

I also own a Multistrada V4S, and I was riding it like a big dirt bike. Then early this year I've signed up for the Ducati DRE Adventure in Toscana. The choice of bikes were the scrambler (nah), the MV4S (I already knew it), and the Desert X. No brainer, since back then, not even the news people had an opportunity to ride them.

I was perfectly happy with my MV4S and in my mind it would be my main adventure bike for years to come, but after 2 days of training and riding in Tuscany with the DDX, I was completely sold. I came back and put my name on the waiting list and got the first DDX in San Diego.

Now the V4S has street tires once again, and is the main bike to take the wife to weekend trips. The DDX is my new big dirt bike. Loving every moment.

They focused on several types of braking, proper body position while in slow turns and low traction surfaces, balance and vision (riding through a long plank of wood, ruts), going over logs, uphill, downhill, etc. During riding day we practiced things like picking up bikes, fixing flat tires, etc.
