 Hi All. In Jan I bought my 2018 MTS 950 with Spoked Wheels. So far (400 miles) loving it. Came from Triumph triples, so quite an adjustment in engine dynamics. One that I am truly enjoying. After reading posts on panniers, I went with the Ducati (Givi) with colored inserts. Nothing looks better! Be advised, they come without the lock cylinders.

 :401: Welcome to the forum, David S. Enjoy your new ride. BTW, the bike comes with the locks for panniers and topbox. Mine were in a plastic bag under the pillion seat.

Welcome David, quite a few have come from Triumphs , myself included. The bike is not only brilliant it is fun to ride as you have found out. There is a wealth of knowledge on the website so make the most of it.

Good morning and welcome to a very worthwhile forum.  By the way, in what state is Eaton?

Eaton is in Colorado, about 45 min. north of Denver. 20 min. away from the Rockies, yet I still want to ride the Texas Hill Country.

 Yes, a bit chilly. Below zero every night for almost a week now, with daytime highs in the low 30's (F). Hoping for a 45 F day, then I'll be off exploring.
