44: Long Ride Planning Part 2 and Rico rides the Ducati Multistrada Enduro and XDiavel

Tonight the guys talk about how they go about planning out a long road trip or not.  Rico was able to stop by for a Ducati demo ride and gives us his take on the Multrstrada Enduro and the XDiavel.

What the guys sipped on during the show:

Long Trip Planning:

Rico was able to get a little time in to stop by Ducati demo and get to take a couple of bikes for a little spin.  Rico thoughts.....

Multirstrada Enduro:

  • Really enjoys bike, and now gets the idea of adventure bikes
  • This one adds to the stable to bring the total to four
  • Comfortable ride, could use a backrest
  • 40 minutes including traffic and some nice back roads
  • Tried touring and sport modes
  • Main negative was a lot of shifting to find the power band.  Felt like engine ran out of breath too soon

xDiavel

  • Loves the look of the bike!
  • FAST Bike
  • Stop light comment about how nice the bike looks
  • Took bike on same roads with the Multristrada Enduro
  • Felt like the bike could do wheelies in 1st or 2nd gear with no problems
  • Had the bike in sport mode the entire demo ride
  • Just like the Multistrade, felt like the engine ran out of breath
  • Rico is still smiles thinking about the XDiavel
