Another Hello from the Netherlands
« on: December 12, 2017, 04:12:47 PM »
Hello everybody!

My name is Lemotard (Peer) and I recently bought a MTS 950, a white one  :150:

I am 64 years old and I am riding bikes for more then 45 years now. The last one was a Harley Electra Glide but before that I had a Buell Ulysses which I really liked. They do not make Buell's anymore and after testdriving some bikes I went for the MTS 950.

Drive around 15.000 km a year, all for pleasure. Member of a local club of retired persons, we drive in the week not the weekend!  :001: And member of a non brand European club for the long trips.

Looking forward to meet some nice people her and some good advice/tips  :821:

Just want to add that I am getting my MTS 950 in March. So except for the half day testing it, my experience is limited.

I have also ordered the panniers, topcase, heated grips, center stand and radiator protector.

Sure I will change some things more depending on the first long rides  :038:

 :400: to the forum, Leotard.......or should that be the "old boys club"! You will find that a number of us have many, many years of motorcycling behind us. And still we love it  :002: You're going to love the bike when you get it. Had the dealer sold all the red ones  :164:

Hello Lemotard,

Welcome to the forum. The MTS950 is totally different than a Harley, but I am sure you will enjoy the bike!
