    Hello all. I thought i'd introduce myself, as i've just put a deposit down on a 2019 Multistrada 950s which I will hopefully pick up next week.

    Been riding a BMW F800GS for the past few years, so i'm looking forward to jumping on the Ducati as i'm not getting any younger, and I need more comfort!

    Looking forward to using this forum 👍

    Hi Darryl0819 and welcome to the forum - do I get the impression that a lot of members are around my vintage 1951ish? :435:

    Thanks guys 😊 . Well I picked her up on Tuesday and I absolutely love it. I'm quite surprised just how much vibration that i'm getting through the bars though, compared to my previous BMW. I've worked out that I need to be in a lower gear for longer, before changing up to help with that. I guess it's all about getting used to it.
