First proper ride - my impression of the MTS950

Hi fellow MTS950 riders.

I'm new to this group but just returned from a blast up the west coast of Scotland (Glasgow up to Skye and back) on my first proper trip since gettig the bike and I had a tremendous time on my 2019 MTS 950. This is one hell of a bike. After over 500 miles in various conditions/terrains:

It's not a sportsbike, but it is
It's not an adventure bike, but it is
it's not a cruiser, but it is

The handling is sublime (albeit i am going to stiffen up the front end slightly), the engine is a peach with excellent power delivery, as comfy as my armchair and it looks great, what's not to like.

I am now a Ducati 950 convert (mostly Kawa's up till now)   :028:
