Just purchased a MS 950S (2020) and am very jazzed. I'm from the North Coast of California and am coming from touring bikes (Harley baggers and a BMW R 1200 RT). I've decided I've done my share of riding long distances through this great open country of ours (that's a nice way of saying Nevada, Kansas, Nebraska and Texas go on forever!). So I'm trailering and RVing these days, and decided to switch to a SsportTourer /Adventure bike to explore on. I'll still be doing quite a bit of two up riding, so I pretty quickly identified the beemer GS bikes, the MS 950 and the Triumph 900 as logical choices. Didn't take much research to decide. Went down today and popped for the 950 S, probably the most beautiful of any of the motorcycles I've owned. I pick it up next week after some accessories are installed, and cannot wait to take off on it. Not to make anyone jealous, but since I live four blocks from the northern end of the Pacific Coast Hiway, that's going to be my first ride! Look forward to hangin' about here a bit.
