Just did 1,200 km over the last three days, with the biggest day being 466 km. pleased to confirm no sore neck, shoulders or wrists. Bum felt a little of the pounding at the end of the 466 km but that is to be expected on some of the roads we took. I fitted the blaze panniers and they worked a treat. I'll be doing many more "touring" trips on the 899 and thoroughly recommend it is a very capable Sports Tourer - and dead sexier than my old ST4. So when am I going to ride my Multistrada?
