    Long time lurker, long time rider, first time Ducati owner

    Hi all-
    My bike history:
    -Yamaha YZ125 (2 of them)
    -Yamaha IT250
    -Honda Nighthawk 450
    -Honda V65 Magna
    -Yamaha FJR1300
    -Ducati Multistrada 950

    Getting older and wanted a more comfortable (upright) sport tourer. My dad had a V-Strom 1000 (great bike!) and it was close to what I wanted. I thought I was going to buy the 1200 Multistrada but rode the 950 and 1200 on the same day and just didn't like the big one. Bought the 2017 950 and have no regrets. Love the bike. Been on week long road trips with only 2 minor complaints, back brake is a bit weak and the seat is a bit thin even for my 145lbs, oh and would love a few more miles of gas tank range. I live in the Chicago metro area and enjoy riding to the PA, WV, VA TN, KY area for twisty roads.
    Cheers!

    Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight
