    Hello everyone and thanks for adding me to the forum.
    Just picked my 2017 950 with 9k miles. Only done about 200 miles so far and I'm really enjoying the bike. Passed my test 3 years ago and this is only my 2nd bike, moved up from a Yamaha MT07. The 950 is streets ahead in terms of quality, comfort, handling and much more. Wish I'd done it sooner but wanted to gain more experience. Once moving, I feel great on the bike. Only issue I have is the big increase in weight and size of the bike when doing slow manoeuvring and I'm worried about dropping it. Hopefully just need to get used to it. Have ordered R and G bar end sliders and evotech frame bobbins just in case and perhaps a side stand extender pad. Would appreciate any suggestions.
    Found the wind protection excellent apart from buffeting on motorways so I'm going trying out the iconic parts screen spacers.
    That's probably all I'll add to the bike as I need to save some money for the desmo service next year!  :008:
    Looking forward to many more miles and meeting other Multi owners. Cheers
