Brand new owner-950S
« on: September 22, 2019, 03:22:13 PM »
Hi fellow Ducatisti,

Just picked up a brand new 2019 MT 950S yesterday. 12 miles on the clock. A bit about me. I live in Santa Clara CA. Been riding for 39 years (I'm 59); roadraced AFM here in CA at Sears Point Raceway on modified production on a Yamaha 550 Seca for two years in the early 80's before racing expenses and work obligations prevented me from continuing the passion. Been on sportbikes pretty much exclusively during my riding life and this is my second Ducati. (owned a 2000 ST4 for about 6 years). I love the Ducati L-twin engine and it is a joy to get back on a twin after so many years on inline 4's. Really looking forward to the comfort of the MT as sportbikes are great but doing multi-day touring rides, back and wrists are gonna really welcome the upright seating position of the MT.

Looking forward to getting to know other members here on the forum and if you are in the SF Bay area, PM me as I have a lot to learn about the MT! :002:

Invest in a gel seat. Something that I should have done.
Enjoy 😁

Nice one mate. Welcome

I am guessing by that name that you're a guitarist too?!

Hey IaKWhisky,

Thanks, not a very good guitarist but a guitarist nonetheless!

Regards,
