That's bordering on criminal. Glad you saved it.I realized I have not updated this thread in a while. Seems like as good a time as any to welcome a new steed to the stable
Operation Oakland Motorcycle Rescue II: The Revengening.

This past weekend I flew to Oakland to pick up a "beater" bike from a friend of a friend. This 2011 Multistrada S Sport has had all the bags added and "racing pedigree" (meaning a previous owner crashed it in The Corkscrew at Laguna Seca).
This weekend she made it home and is tucked in on the hoist, ready for the work to begin.

I started by scraping all the skooge and crud off the chain to reveal how much neglect this bike has suffered.

Glad you got the wheelie test out the wayI rode the Multi from Oakland to Redwood City to load it on the truck; pulling onto the first on-ramp I rolled on the throttle as I normally did - before I knew it, I had the headlight pointed about 40 degrees in the air.
