Got mine today!
« on: February 25, 2017, 11:19:52 PM »
Went for a nice long test ride (and also tried the MTS 1200) last weekend, and went back and bought the 950 today. Only got a short ride in due to a thunderstorm, but I really like the bike so far.

I'm in the DC area if anyone wants to meet up to ride, and I will be attending the Road Runner Tour Weekend in August in Tennessee.

(tried three times to post a pic but the site won't let me) :(

Congrats Jim on your purchase.  :821: Interesting that you tried the 1200 MTS too. What influenced your decision to go for the 950 instead of the 1200? And the most important question....which colour did you go for??  :038:

It was a tough choice.  There's a lot to like about the 1200.  The engine runs a little smoother at low rpm, and it has some features the 950 lacks, like cruise control and cornering ABS.  The handling is a little more sporty due to the shorter wheelbase and 17" front wheel.  But after thinking it over, I 'd rather have the stability of the 950 for highway cruising and occasional gravel or dirt roads, and I just feel no need to pay for an additional 50 horsepower that I will probably never use.

And I went for white :)

Pic doesn't seem to be rendering for me  :021:

Not sure why, might be the type of link from Photobucket.

Edit:    Ah.... working now, must have been a Photobucket issue  :002:

Nice bike !  Congrats !   :047:
