Before the Ducati I had a 2017 Triumph Trophy SE, and before that it was a 2014 Triumph Explorer 1200. I gave up on the Triumphs. Loved the bikes, but part supplies and customer service made sure I did not come back. I do have a great dealer to work with though, they have BMW, Triumph and Ducati. So..... Ducati over BMW? Yes, I rode them both. It was not even close.
