    Hey fellow MTS 950 riders!,

    Just put 700 miles on the new 950S and broke her in right. Now it is ready for its first service. The bike was great for the two days this past weekend, really a departure from the sportbikes I've ridden all my riding career. (wrists no longer hurt but my butt is sore!  :008:). The bike handles brilliantly and impressed with the Pirelli Scorpion Trail II's. They seem to stick very well even at steep lean angles. Spent about an hour last night soaking the yellow goo "bug genocide" I committed off the windscreen, fairing, handguards.  All-in all, very satisfied with the bike! :028:

    A few things to rectify: Ducati handgrips are hard as concrete! Started developing a blister on my throttle hand ring finger just at the palm. Gonna put some gel grips on her. Put the Iconic parts windscreen spacers on which helped reduce the buffeting (with the stock screen), but will probably look into an aftermarket (either Puig, Givi or other), to improve it further.

    Rubber side down folks!  :305:
