Spent most of the ride in dynamic pro, it's an animal when fully unleashed.

I was out yesterday for about two and a half hours, nearly went up to Stow myself but turned right at Cirencester and headed down to Swindon then on to Marlborough then back along the A4 home.
Wanted to try the Dorsoduro on the dual carriageway to see what it’s like at speed, the front end gets a bit twitchy but the plus side the wind buffeting was very light, a lot better the multi which surprised me. I reckon you could clock up a few miles in a day on it no problem, anyway after a ‘spirited’ ride the petrol light came on at 84 miles :D . So filled up in Marlborough cleaned the visor and off I went, followed a 20 plate RS6 Avant for a bit, driving like a girl he was :D :D

No. Rain, Road, Dynamic, and Dynamic Pro. You can also switch the suspension from Road to Dynamic. TBH that's quite enough for me to cope with and I only really use Rain and Dynamic.

That's a great angle.... look at the size of the front wheel! It's like a cartoon. In a good way.

Went out with Perkles but it was far too hot, too much traffic and loads of road works.

The MV does not like the heat.

Is that paint on the rear spokes, or a chamfered edge??

Looking good Ben!

Don't forget to go to the Intro thread and say hi.

Slappers, this is my nephew in the US, be nice to him or I'll bash ya :D
Will do! I must have skipped over the Intro thread by mistake. Took the bike in this morning for a flash and dino tune, should have it back in a few days!

That's a good looking bike. I like that a lot.

What amazes me though is all the Italian flair and design skills and they can't do better than a shitty disk reflector on the front..

That’s going to make a very noticeable difference I’d say, be interested in how you find it post tune.
