    Hi everyone.
    Just become the very proud owner of a new white 950 with touring kit (planning some jaunts with the wife).
    Traded my scrambler Sixty2 (my first Ducati - which I adored, but was not suitable for touring. And the boss says I'm only allowed 1 bike at a time 😥)

    Looking forward to getting to know you all ( and the bike!)

    Very best
    Tim (redzob) from Guernsey in the British Channel Islands

    Welcome, enjoy your new bike. I'd have a garage full too if finances and significant other allowed.

     :400: Redzob. Keep working on the wife, I kept nagging and eventually she gave in, so I have 2 bikes in the garage.  :082:

    Hi Tim
    I worked in Guernsey for 18 months from 2010. What a great island to own any bike especially an MTS.
    I rode my old bike over there to keep it there so I could enjoy the island in the evenings and some weekends in between flights home.
    Enjoy !!
    It's amazing with the 30mph speed limit there are a wide mixture of bikes over there even the superbikes. Carefully does it when you reach the 6k+ rpm range 😉

    Hi Dave G and thanks for your kind welcome.

    Just a small (but important) point of order- the speed limit is 35mph. Apart from where it's 25mph (in urban areas (!)). Apart from where it's 15 mph (the quiet 'route tranquille' lanes set aside for walking, cycling and horse riding)

    5mph can make all the difference. 😉

    Best regards
    Redzob
