    Great pics. I'm looking into those Moto-Skiveez now. I've been using LD Comfort shorts for years when I do longer rides. Basically they're like compression shorts that offer support when sitting. Like bicycle shorts but a little less stretchy. They help. I also wear them to church because the seats are hard & it's 1 1/2 hours. If I forget them I'm squirming 30 minutes in. But they don't have a pad like the Moto-Skiveez so I may try those too. & another + on Grip Puppies. Soft & comfortable.

A good friend of mine has a Multi and for some reason i remember his looking different than yours. I stared at yours for a bit trying to figure out what it was until someone mentioned it being a Multi. Think my friend's has 160 hp, that is insane power for an ADV bike.

    Mine is a 2011 Multistrada 1200, i got it new in 2011. Its been a great bike. The newer ones aren't all that different in the looks department, they did bump the displacement and HP a small amount since i got mine. They are indeed a strong bike, its one of the reasons i got mine. One test ride and i fell in love with the motor.

    I believe there are clutch levers that you can get for the CTX700 'sister' bike that are adjustable. When my eldest daughter was considering getting one that was one of the issues we discussed and I looked into.

    Not actually for the CTX, but from the CTX forum:
    Clutch position - Honda CTX700 Forum

    From the ST1300 forum discussing the CTX
    Adjustable clutch lever - Honda CTX1300 Forum
    One of those threads mentions the PUIG brand lever as an option. I irdered one of those up yesterday from Revzilla so it should be problem solved once it gets delivered.

    I guess his does look like yours, I just remembered it differently I guess. I am a fan of red and I like yours way better! Looks great.

    Here is his.
